Neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton, it turns out, were on the Indiana presidential primary ballot legally in 2008. Forgery got them both on the ballot.

A jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democratic political operatives were convicted Thursday night in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations in South Bend. They were found guilty on all counts.

Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr.  was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House.

Morgan was accused of being the mastermind behind the plot.

According to testimony from two former Board of Election officials who pled guilty, Morgan ordered Democratic officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race. Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democratic Party volunteer, was accused of forging multiple pages of the Obama petitions.

Obama and Clinton were the only candidates on the ballot in Indiana’s 2008 Democratic primary.

In Indiana, too. When the Dems tried to fight ID requirements in Indiana, their "dream plaintiff" turned out to have been illegally voting in Indiana and Florida.

Facts won't change their minds, MM. Don't doubt that. It'll still be a "myth."
