10/4/16 Election Fraud
You’d think most people would want a fair election.
Here’s what’s happening behind the headlines.
Disagreement rages between those who favor secure elections and critics who oppose photo IDs. They claim it’s a solution for a problem that doesn’t exist.
In spite of the naysaying, there are hundreds of examples of election fraud.
Opponents of secure elections argue a photo ID is an undue burden on the Constitutional right to vote. Yet, photo IDs are required for other Constitutional rights. You can’t buy a gun, enter a federal building, or marry without proper identification. Oftentimes, the right to peaceably assemble is banned without obtaining a permit and showing ID. The Supreme Court has stated public accommodation is a right. But try flying or checking into a hotel without proving your identity.
Now this. Three academics at Old Dominion University issued a paper stating non-citizens have voted in elections. In some cases, they’ve affected the outcomes. It goes without saying that ODU isn’t exactly a bastion of conservatism.
Election fraud is real.
