Voter Fraud: Millions of illegals voted

Millions of Illegals voted Voter fraud and immigration are the third rails of Democrat politics. You can touch anything, but not those.

Re: Asian rock group wins right to call themselves, "The Slants".

Yes, cass, as a regular reader of your posts over the years, I know exactly to whom you are referring.
