Democratic Party chief arrested

For all of the shrill accusations of vote fraud being levelled at Republicans these days, look who actually got arrested for it...

The Madison County [Indiana] Democratic Party chairman was one of two men arrested on vote fraud charges Tuesday.

Thomas Ashley, 70, the county Democratic chairman, and Kyle Barber, 47, are free on $5,000 bond each from the Madison County Jail. Barber was booked on 12 counts of vote fraud and three counts of obstruction of justice, and Ashley was booked on two counts of vote fraud.
Of course, the folks at Democratic Underground are already calling this "payback" and a "Classic Rovian move". Because, you know, Karl Rove controls law enforcement in Indiana.
