Emory Ford: Let’s see the columnist’s evidence of ‘widespread voter fraud’
To the editor:
In the Aug. 6 edition of the Gazette, Dr. Jay Fleitman, in the last paragraph of his column, expressed a concern over “widespread voter fraud” and the need for implementing voter identification processes.
Voter fraud is a legitimate concern. However, the concern needs support by verifiable facts before implementing voter identification processes.
As a practicing M.D., trained to assess situations on the basis of observable facts, I think that Dr. Fleitman should provide the facts to support the claim of “widespread voter fraud.”
Dr. Fleitman is entitled to his opinion on voter fraud, but in the absence of facts, the opinion remains an uninformed opinion.
