AZ Secretary of State: "No Evidence" To Back Up Jesse Kelly's Story

Posted By on Fri, Oct 29, 2010 at 9:11 AM

The Arizona Republic notes that Republican Jesse Kelly, who is seeking to unseat Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, is making up stories about Mexicans being bused into Arizona to vote:

In an interview Wednesday on The Mark Levin Show, Kelly told the conservative talk show host, “There’s actually rumors people have video of them busing people across from our Southern border. They literally bus people across from Mexico to have them vote at the polls on Election Day. Give them a meal, and then bus them back. It’s been done in the past, so we’re really fighting against that down here.”

However, Matthew Benson, communications director for the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office, said, “We’ve seen no evidence of that allegation.”

He said state law requires Arizona that voters show identification on Election Day.

“It’s almost become a kind of urban legend in Arizona,” Benson said of the allegation that Mexicans are being brought into the United States to vote. “In terms of specific instances, we haven’t seen it.”
