Was the fraud just at the fringes? Or was there fraud on the scale former Illinois governor and corruption-connoisseur felon Rod Blagojevich suggested on Friday?
"If the question is are the Democrats stealing votes in Philadelphia, my answer is, 'Is the Pope Catholic?'
It's a time-honored tradition," Blagojevich said. "Big Democrat-controlled cities like Chicago, my hometown, Philadelphia, to do precisely what they're doing now I've never seen such a magnitude because this I think is an indication of just how widespread it is, how deep it is."
"And I don't think it's just confined to Philadelphia. My instincts, again coming out of Chicago Democratic politics, my instincts tell me it's going on in Atlanta, it's going on in Detroit, it's going on in Milwaukee, it's going on in Las Vegas," Blagojevich continued. "It's like what Justice Powell said about pornography: 'You can't define it, but you know when you see it.'"
"And coming out of the Democratic Chicago political establishment, I know how they operate. They control polling places, they stop votes when their candidate's behind, and then in the wee hours of the morning, in the dark of night, the stealing starts. And we've seen that in big numbers, unprecedented numbers in this election in Michigan and Philadelphia. It's outrageous, and the fact that they're doing it with impunity . . ."
