Coming just weeks after the strange tilt in the Iowa Caucus, comes claims of potential fraud in the South Carolina GOP primary.
Brandon Turbeville writes:
"Although no one is pointing fingers at the Gingrich campaign, or any other campaign at this point, the anomalies that are arising from the accounts of eyewitnesses call into question the certainty and the credibility of the final count in South Carolina.
At this time, the most serious questions are centered around the precincts in Pickens County. It was in this precinct that Chris Lawton, representing the Paul campaign, came to the Pickens County elections office to witness the vote certification and noticed a series of situations that were either in direct opposition to State voting laws, or, at the very least, highly questionable."
What Lawton details does seem to be a series of odd departures from expected procedure. We'll keep an eye on this one.
