Description

A Riverfront Times investigation reveals that in Dallas "ballot bounty hunters are hired to fan out through minority neighborhoods and "assist" voters in applying for and casting absentee ballots." The story provides a glimpse on the real cost of political corruption. The reporter interviews a number of defrauded voters, mostly elderly African-Americans, and describes how they ballots have been taken from them and who has done it. "Arcane election laws and lax enforcement make the process seem not quite illegal, though plenty sleazy," The Observer reports.
