Karl Bradfield Nicholas was arraigned on Friday on two counts of unlawful tampering with voting machines and ballots and a felony computer crime charge.

Prosecutors alleged the 50-year-old Nicholas stole about 75 ballots, the voter roster and the voting machine memory pack and access key from a polling site in the city's southernmost district in the middle of Election Day on Tuesday.

The ballots were later found floating in a pond at the Palace of the Fine Arts in the city's Marina neighborhood.

Nicholas is due back in court for a preliminary hearing on Nov. 19.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Baseless Fraud Claims Spawn Real Voter Intimidation

Every election year, politicians and citizen activists stridently charge that voter fraud is permeating the system. It went as mainstream as Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain himself in 2008. This year it was tea partiers at their meetings and in the blogosphere, egged on by senior Republican officials. Former House Majority Leader turned tea party leader <u>Dick Armey told Fox News more Democrats were voting early because that's when its easier to cheat more. David Norcross, the Chair of the Republican National Lawyers Association called vote fraud "an epidemic". Fox News played its role, with its anchors constantly trumpeting reports of "voter fraud on a massive scale with the intention of keeping Democrats in office."
</u>
None of these assertions had the slightest bit of substantiation. It is well established through academic research, reports from elections officials and law enforcement statistics that voter fraud at the polling place is almost non-existent. The motivation for ginning up this bogeyman is to encourage activities such as vote caging and challenges designed to intimidate certain groups of voters and ultimately enact policies such as proof of citizenship and voter ID laws that will make it harder for disadvantaged groups to exercise their right to vote. Such efforts must continue to be combated as weapons of disenfranchisement rather than fraud fighting.

The fraud allegation frenzy had its intended effect in 2010. It encouraged certain activist groups and individuals to take up the bogus anti-fraud cause. As has been well documented, Tea Party groups across the nation set up "poll watch" operations where they planned to engage in activities that would interfere with the voters at the polling places, perhaps to the point of crossing the line into illegality. Some members of these groups may not have always been aware of the allowed parameters of behavior. True the Vote in Texas formed the blue print during early voting when many of its members allegedly started confrontations and harassed voters in Houston. Activists in multiple states then took on the cause. Groups encouraged members to undertake blatantly intimidating activities like photographing and videotaping voters and following them around. Unprecedented numbers of poll watchers showed up at polling sites in communities of color. One group even offered a $500 reward for vote fraud tips.

Fortunately, on Election Day itself the Tea Party groups' threats turned out to be little more than empty. There were scattered occasions of overly aggressive poll watchers, including in Minnesota, but the situations were dealt with firmly and efficiently by Election Protection workers and election administrators. Yet the climate of anxiety and antagonism the groups created in the days leading up to the election had its effect--one that was not good for voters, elections officers, or democracy, and were completely unnecessary.

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>Also noteworthy after Election Day had come and gone was the sudden silence from the fraud-mongerers and Tea Party poll watch groups. Not a peep of one case of substantiated fraud at the polling place. Even Fox News decided to cancel a special report on voter fraud it had planned on Nevada because there was no fraud. </span></div></div>

So from this massive epidemic of voter fraud by Democrats , the only example you can come up with is a Republican poll worker who allegedly stole 75 ballot papers !
