A study on voter fraud pushed by Maine Republicans concluded that there is absolutely no evidence of student voter fraud in the state — but the GOP has pledged to crack down on it anyway. Like conservative state legislatures across the country, Maine Republicans have been pushing a Voter ID law, ostensibly to prevent non-existent voter fraud. As ThinkProgress has documented, these laws are a transparent attempt to disenfranchise Democratic voters, especially students, the poor, and minorities.
Are honest, good-faith Conservatives really confused anymore as to why the Left accuses the GOP of being both anti-scientific and divorced from reality? Particularly when their policy choices are antithetical to studies that the GOP themselves are submitting to the public?
I suppose we’d have to track down one of the honest, good-faith Conservatives and ask. But I wouldn’t know where to look. Can anybody name one?
There is no mass voter fraud in America, it is an outright lie. It is an excuse to reinstate voting taxes and in general suppress the votes of non-rich non-aged non-white people. There is no argument to be had, it’s completely, truthfully, and utterly what the right is doing.
