“For someone who wants to be the state’s chief of elections, you need to learn the difference between elections and petitions.” Bingo.

You know, the Children’s Television Workshop teaches critical thinking skills:

One of These Things (Is Not Like The Others)

One of these things is not like the others,

One of these things just doesn’t belong,

Can you tell which thing is not like the others

By the time I finish my song?

Some people didn’t pay attention.

Yesterday, from John “Jay” Ashcroft, a republican party legacy and candidate for Secretary of State in 2016:

Jay Ashcroft ‏@JayAshcroftMO

Remember when @JasonKander said voter fraud is “unsubstantiated”? Turns out he was wrong. [….]9:54 PM – 19 May 2015

What an ignoranomus.

Some responses:

Sean Nicholson @ssnich

Remember that time @JayAshcroftMO conflated completely separate issues to advance GOP anti-voting agenda? [….] 9:57 PM – 19 May 2015

Evan Chiarelli ‏@FuturePOTUS2036

@JayAshcroftMO @JasonKander Not the same issue. Don’t mix voter fraud at the ballot box with 4 people faking signatures on a petition. 10:02 PM – 19 May 2015

John “Jay” Ashcroft (r) is being either cynically manipulative for political purposes or irredeemably stupid. Your pick.
