Attempts by Republican-run states to suppress the vote is getting so bad that it has even become a story arc in the comic strip Doonesbury. As you know, I write about Voter I.D. laws all the time, that there is virtually no voter fraud in America, and how the laws target Democratic voters.
In one Voter ID legal battle, Pennsylvania stipulates that there is no “in-person voter fraud” as you can see above in the stipulation agreement that the state signed with lawyers for the plaintiffs. They have no case.
As the Justice Department investigates Pennsylvania’s voter ID law on the federal level, a coalition of civil rights groups is gearing up for a state trial starting Wednesday examining whether the law is allowable under Pennsylvania’s constitution.
In that case, Pennsylvania might have handed those groups and their clients (including 93-year-old Viviette Applewhite) a bit of an advantage: They’ve formally acknowledged that there’s been no reported in-person voter fraud in Pennsylvania and there isn’t likely to be in November.
So what the heck evidence are they going to present?
And now, because it’s election season and we’ll be extra busy, we GottaAsk. We do so reluctantly and would love to reach our goal so we can stop asking already!
