Does WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs support voter fraud? 

Yesterday evening I was in a hotel that had MSNBC on, and airing at the moment was The Ed Show hosted by liberal bloviator Ed Schultz. That in and of itself is unremarkable. But when I looked back at the television a few moments later, I saw that White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was being interviewed on the show.

Just a few days prior, Ed Schultz said the following regarding the Massachusetts special senate election:

ED SCHULTZ, HOST: I tell you what, if I lived in Massachusetts, I'd try to vote ten times. I don't know if they'd let me or not, but I'd try to. Yeah, that's right, I'd cheat to keep these bastards out. I would. 'Cause that's exactly what they are.

The White House sees no problem appearing on his show and lending legitimacy to a man that would say such things? Yet the White House wants to exclude Fox News from the press pool and has spent weeks being outrageously outraged over the fact that Rush Limbaugh has controversial opinions.

Considering that, I would really, really like to know how the White House can justify lending an air of legitimacy to Ed Schultz days after he unequivocally endorsed engaging in voter fraud. It's a double standard of the highest order.
