Group says buses from reservations are part of voter fraud

A group linked to the Tea Party and conservative causes is spreading stories nationwide about "voter fraud buses," The New York Times reports.

In one version of the story, a bus full of people from a reservation shows up at a polling place on election day, according to True The Vote. In other versions, it's voters from out of state or from a big city.

“Pick your minority group,” a spokesperson for a Wisconsin elections agency told the Times of the stories.

There is never any actual evidence of the "voter fraud bus." But that hasn't stopped the group from spreading the story in California, Wisconsin, Montana and other states.

True The Vote claims to be non-partisan but its founder was a Tea Party leader in Texas, the Times reported.
