Fraudulent Voter Fraud

You know how you always had a sneaking suspicion that all this commentary about voter fraud by the DOJ was a bunch of huey? You were right. It's not like the newspapers were overflowing with stories about millions of citizens who voted in 2 places on election day. Sure, maybe there were a couple of people who voted in two places, but you'd hardly think that it was enough to turn an election around. You certainly can't imagine Democrats pulling anything like this off either, can you? wimps But all a battleground state needed to suppress votes from a particular group, like minorities for instance, was anecdotal evidence of someone voting in more than one place and then pushing through voter ID legislation which invariably leaves poor people and minorities who would vote for Democrats, home on election day. Then the DOJ scandal arose where prosecutors were told to prosecute voter fraud cases and they were fired when they couldn't find any to prosecute. Oh just read this good article at Slate about the American Center for Voting Rights which just up and disappeared off the face of the planet recently.

See also this story in McClatchy news, Efforts to stop `voter fraud' may have curbed legitimate voting Hans von Spakovsky who wrote under a pseudonym, falsely claiming that voter ID wouldn't restrict minority voting is now under investigation that he was a part of the voter suppression plan of the GOP.
Mr. von Spakovsky was central to the administration's pursuit of strategies that had the effect of suppressing the minority vote," charged Joseph Rich, a former Justice Department voting rights chief who worked under him.

He and other former career department lawyers say that von Spakovsky steered the agency toward voting rights policies not seen before, pushing to curb minor instances of election fraud by imposing sweeping restrictions that would make it harder, not easier, for Democratic-leaning poor and minority voters to cast ballots.
This story is unbelievable. The evildoers will stop at nothing.
