Look at that. Republicans have been so vocal about how rampant voter fraud is, are so worried that they insisted that voters show photo I.D.s at the polls or they can’t vote (even if they have for decades), are so concerned that they made voter registrations nearly impossible, and yet…
Despite nationwide efforts to make voting more difficult, the Republican Party of Iowa decided to buck the trend and allow for on-site registration. In doing so, however, they necessarily undercut the argument being made by GOPers in many other states that election day registration (EDR) invites fraud. (Of course, voters are 39 times more likely to be struck by lightning than commit fraud at the polls, and EDR actually helps prevent already-miniscule levels of fraud.) [...]
Brad Friedman also points out that the Republican caucuses will not require voters to present a photo ID in order to cast their ballot, a requirement GOPers around the country pushed vigorously in 2011.
So this is a tacit admission that voter fraud is virtually non-existent… unless you’re a Democrat. Then it’s out of control!
Thank you, Think Progress and Brad Friedman, for exposing– once again– the blatant hypocrisy of the GOP.
The Republican Party: Hypocridiots-O’-The-Day.
That was today’s Quickie. Will you still respect me in the morning?
