Mythical voter fraud debunked

I already did a longer post at Detroit News yesterday so I'm just going to archive the link to this study showing "voter fraud" is a GOP lie.
A new nationwide analysis of more than 2,000 cases of alleged election fraud over the past dozen years shows that in-person voter impersonation on Election Day, which has prompted 37 state legislatures to enact or consider tougher voter ID laws, was virtually nonexistent.

The analysis of 2,068 reported fraud cases by News21, a Carnegie-Knight investigative reporting project, found 10 cases of alleged in-person voter impersonation since 2000. With 146 million registered voters in the United States, those represent about one for every 15 million prospective voters.
I assume I don't need to tell you the whole vote fraud lie is just a cover to steal the election via Voter ID laws. Reading the comments at my DetNews post is pretty depressing though. It shows just how firmly embedded the lies are in the hard core con psyche.

Latest estimates suggest some five million legitimate voters will be robbed of their right to vote. Which of course, is the real voter fraud. And also why this really is the most important election ever. Every single vote to counter this fraud is critically needed.
