Voter Fraud
Voter Fraud is a serious challenge to free and honest election in the US. Common practice in other countries it has developed growing concern int eh US in the past two decades. Suspicious situations, prosecutions and tactics like extending voting to other than election days, mail in ballots, unlimited extensions of delivery of ballots and undercover video evidence of intent and actual fraud combine to make our elections feel less free & honest. The left says there is no such thing as voter fraud … and if you disagree, you’re a racist. It is discriminatory and depresses minority turnout. They attack those who dare to support voter ID laws as “anti-voting rights activists and voter fraud hucksters”. The right says voter fraud is real. Indeed, Its practically a tradition in this country to do things the Daley way in Chicago, or the Philadelphia way, or voting control as with Tammany Hall in New York City. The right says we need to verify that each voter is legal.

The Texas Voting Melodrama

from The Wall Street Journal,

Joe Biden says it’s ‘an assault on democracy.’ The facts say otherwise.

The bill has many odds and ends.

The Texas bill isn’t perfect, but no election law is since the exercise involves balancing ballot access, election security, ease of administration, and so forth. The point is that it’s hard to take seriously Mr. Biden’s narrative about an assault on democracy in a state that gives voters two weeks to cast a vote.

Look forward, then, to more overheated rhetoric from partisans like Mr. Biden. But remember that his histrionics are intended to give political cover to Democrats in Congress who want to override 50 state election laws by jamming through H.R.1 on a partisan vote. That’s the real voting-law outrage.
