Regarding the story "Busted! Democrat senator's husband steals GOP signs" – this isn't really news. I started working on political campaigns 48 years ago, and from then to now the Democrats have always stolen signs in every election, in both Maryland and Virginia. In fact, the Republicans spend eight times as much money on campaign signs specifically because of this.
News tip: Look at Colorado. There is no such thing as a secret ballot there anymore. You have to put your ballot into a sleeve that has your name and address on it, even if you vote in person. They do claim that they don't match up your identity with how you voted [wink, wink]. They have now abolished voting in person entirely. The whole process is ripe for voter fraud and tracking your votes.
