Millions of dollars have been spent purging voter rolls and requiring voter ID, but these laws do little but disenfranchise otherwise eligible voters. Even in Pennsylvania, whose voter ID law is currently tied up in litigation, the state’s attorneys conceded that there "have been no investigations or prosecutions of in-person voter fraud in Pennsylvania."
Jon Stewart’s right: widespread voter fraud isn’t a problem; even if it were, these laws wouldn’t stop it; and for all we know, the Right’s going to keep fighting nonexistent issues.
