Sid Salter has an interesting blog post about an email he received from David Landrum, businessman and former candidate for the Republican nomination for Mississippi's Third Congressional District seat. Seems that Mr. Landrum is raising money for a ballot initiative to amend the State Constitution to require voter identification.
Salter's blog quotes Landrum as saying (in part):
"The Mississippi Republican Party is hard at work to get photo voter identification on the ballot in 2010. For years, many people have been allowed to vote numerous times under different names and the deceased have been voting long after they are gone, all due to our lack of a voter identification law."
Is this the same David Landrum who lost all credibility when the voting records showed that HE HADN'T VOTED AT ALL in past elections?
And then claimed that the voting records had been tampered with?
And then didn't dispute that the records his own campaign used to "prove" he had voted were false?
Yep, I think it's the same person.
Maybe Mr. Landrum isn't the best guy to take the lead in the fight for the integrity of the election rolls in Mississippi?
