The Fraud Fraud

Try as the GOP might, there's still no evidence of a meaningful voter fraud problem in the United States, notes another great Ian Urbina article in The New York Times, this time co-written with Eric Lipton. Worse, in a lot of ways, is that since the Bush administration took power the Republicans have shifted from merely using fake election fraud as a rationale for trying to make it hard for people to vote, to actually organizing prosecutions so as to create the appearance that their rhetoric is substantiated. As a result, you have dozens of people actually getting arrested and charged for what were pretty clearly innocent mistakes.
