    Republicans lose appeal on poll-watching tactics


    The Republican National Committee on Thursday lost a bid to dissolve a decades-old legal agreement with the Democratic National Committee over the GOP's use of improper election tactics.

    The agreement dates to 1982, when the Republican National Committee settled a lawsuit brought by the Democratic National Committee accusing the GOP of trying to intimidate minority voters. Under the agreement, the Republican National Committee must obtain court approval before implementing certain poll-monitoring activities in minority precincts.

    From the link, it seems that the Republicans wanted to be certain that a voter was who he said he was....
    ...as in photo ID.

    Is that the argument?

    If so, why would you be opposed to same?

    Election law professor Richard Hasen at University of California, Irvine described the ruling as a "huge win" for the Democratic Party. He said the Republican National Committee could file an emergency appeal to Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, who oversees the 3rd Circuit. Alternately, the committee could seek review by the full 3rd Circuit.

    Impersonation fraud, which the ballot security measures target, is only a small fraction of voter fraud, the court noted in its opinion. More common types of fraud include corruption among election officials or attempts to manipulate absentee ballots, said Hasen, who has written a forthcoming book on the subject.

    The case is Democratic National Committee et al v. Republican National Committee et al, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, No. 09-4615.

    Voting fraud is non existant. The GOP doesn't see the forest through the trees. If they are really worried about a problem with voting it is that only about 38% of the registered voters vote at all. Their energy would be better spent giving the voting public something worth voting for and thereby tapping into the vast majority of Americans that don't give a fuck.
