Limbaugh Cleared in Voter Fraud Probe

Since Rush Limbaugh encouraged his listeners to vote for Hillary Clinton in the Ohio primary, liberal blogs have wondered whether the conservative radio star would face voter fraud charges. By listening to Limbaugh, the blogs argued, the Republicans who turned Democratic just to vote for Clinton and prolong the Democrats' nomination race were in danger of flouting election law, which requires party switchers to believe in their new party's ideals. Limbaugh, the blogs said, was inciting them.

The State of Ohio weighed in yesterday, and judged that Limbaugh is in the clear.

Says Leo Jennings, a spokesman for the Democratic attorney general: "We have no intention of prosecuting Rush Limbaugh because lying through your teeth and being stupid isn't a crime."
