Proof Jared Loughner was a Democrat???
In an effort to further marginalize and smear Republicans and conservatives to further the left’s agenda, the liberal and progressive folks on Twitter are supposedly offering up proof that accused Arizona gunman, Jared Loughner, was a registered Republican by offering up this picture as “evidence”.
Despite the main stream media already reporting that Loughner was registered as an Independent, I took a few minutes to type in the web address shown in that screenshot to the Arizona Secretary of State’s website to see what public information was available. When I arrived at azsos.gov, this is what awaited me:
Hmm, it seems you not only need to know Loughner’s name, date of birth and county, which are now publicly available, but you need to know either Loughner’s Voter I.D. or his Drivers License number, two forms of identification that are NOT public information!
Realizing that any basic graphics program could have easily faked the screenshot “proving” that Jared Loughner was a registered Republican, I decided to throw my hat into the ring and create”irrefutable evidence to the contrary. Using Microsoft Image Composer (a free tool with Microsoft’s FrontPage 98 program) I took the original screenshot, blocked out the word REPUBLICAN and added the word DEMOCRAT. I then matched the font color and size and added a little grain to the text. Within a minute I had created proof that Jared Loughner was neither a registered Independent or Republican, but rather a registered Democrat.
