Charlie Crist Is Way Off The Reservation

Remarkable:

Breaking with the talking points of his fellow Republicans in Washington, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said he does not think voter fraud and the vote-registration group ACORN are a major problem in the Sunshine State.

”I think that there’s probably less [fraud] than is being discussed. As we’re coming into the closing days of any campaign, there are some who enjoy chaos,” Crist told reporters.

Crist made his comments as the Republican National Committee hosted a conference call with reporters to tie Democrat Barack Obama to suspicious voter-registration cards submitted by ACORN across the nation and in four Florida counties, including Broward.

(…)

Crist’s Republican Secretary of State, Kurt Browning, said he doesn’t think ACORN is committing systematic voter fraud. And Crist said that settles the matter because ”I have enormous confidence” in Browning.

Like ACORN spokesmen, Browning says the false voter registration forms could be blamed on unethical canvassers or on citizens who themselves fill out fictitious voter cards.

Crist better watch his back.  Intellectual honesty is not exactly smiled upon in Republican quarters, especially when it goes against the Official Smear Meme Of The Day.
