    Only two biased opinions, as Democrats plead guilty?

    Let's do some math: 311 cases of voter fraud prosecuted since 1997. Divide that by 50 states = 6.22 violations per state. Divide that by 14 years = 0.4 (less than 1) violations per year per state over 14 years.

    Does that sound serious to anyone? Is that worthy of disenfranchising millions of voters?

    The big question is: Why does the GOP push an issue that really doesn't exist?

    The big answer is: Because big voter turnouts usually favor Democrats.

    So anything the GOP can do that will discourage voter turnout can only help the GOP. And they don't care how hard they make it on the poor and elderly to exercize their right to vote as long as they can push their agenda. And that agenda is to give tax breaks to the wealthy while continuing to favor a big, activist government that intrudes on the private lives of its citizens.

    I should add it is quite easy to debunk your BS.

    in 2004 there were an extra thousand votes then voters in King County alone. Not a single prosecution.

    Democrats? This report came from the Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA).

    That is irrelevant - unless they actually vote!
