Charlie Webster, the chairman of Maine’s Republican Party, recently told WCSH-TV that “dozens of black people” voted on Election Day in some parts of rural Maine, which may be proof of voter fraud because “nobody in town knows anyone who’s black” (video below), reports ThinkProgress.org.
Webster said: “Let’s just look at what happened on Tuesday. I mean, literally hundreds of new people came in. We don’t know if they’re residents or not but they came in and voted. And there’s no way of knowing that.”
“In some parts of the state, for example, in some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted election day. Everybody has a right to vote, but nobody in town knows anybody that’s black. How did that happen? I don’t know, but we’re going to find out.”
Popular VideoPeople were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:
Webster said he would get to the bottom of the possible fraud with post cards: "We’re going to mail [the postcards] in and thank people for registering to vote and see whether it comes back."
