So you're saying Cohen put himself in prison for 3 years because...…?? If he didn't do anything wrong, then why did he plea bargain? Would YOU send yourself to prison if you weren't guilty?

Quit with the crappy unsourced articles. Spakovsky said this to whom, when and where? Don't you understand you can't just put words into people's mouths without a source. I could claim Cohen said all kinds of things. Jesus Christ you people believe anything and have no idea what journalism is about.

Here is an excerpt from a Huff Post article.

Quote
But Hans von Spakovsky and J. Christian Adams told members of the American Legislative Exchange Council that voter fraud is actually prevalent in the U.S. and talked about the need to better identify the many non-citizens and other people who they claim are illegally on the voter rolls.

Notice that they say WHO was told. When you see ONLY "he said" you should be seeing a red flag. I can track this statement to the Amer. Leg. Exchange if I want to. The point in stating WHO was told is in not being accused of making shit up.

Good journalists will protect their sources if need be but will at least give some indication of where their info comes from. You're shoddy daily caller never indicates their source, never links to a direct quote. Why do you bother to read what is essentially some bloke's opinion.

Just ONCE could you look something up before getting out your pom-poms. I dare you to come up with one other source for what Spakovsky supposedly said
