Breaking: vote fraud in Oregon sinks GMO labeling

As my readers know, I’m not a fan of GMO labeling. The real route to victory has always been banning GMOs.
Ban, not label.
But I’m also not a fan of vote fraud. Which is what just happened in Oregon, where a recount of a very close election turned into a criminal act.
In November, Prop 92, which would have mandated labeling GMO food products in the state, went down to defeat by 800 votes.
That razor-thin margin triggered an automatic recount, by law.
During the recount, 4600 ballots were thrown out, because the signatures on those ballots didn’t match the signatures on the voters’ registration cards.
Oregon does elections by mail, so matching signatures is the way to prevent cheating.
