MY FAMILY HISTORY OF VOTER FRAUD, AND WHAT IT TAUGHT ME

I cast my first vote for President in 1956.  I voted for Adlai Stevenson even though I could not read his name on the ballot as I was only four years old.  

I cast my next vote for President in 1960 when I was eight.  I voted for John F. Kennedy.  

In 1964, at the age of 12, I voted for Lyndon Johnson.  

Clearly, I was a young Democrat.  A very young Democrat.
