    GOP strategist: Voter fraud isn't real

    Well, nice of him to tell us this now. Unfortunately, it's so ingrained in our collective wisdom-and is a virtual certainty in GOP circles-that you can't even convince the other side that it isn't real...

    Re: GOP strategist: Voter fraud isn't real

    I don't think it's ingrained in the collective wisdom. There are many on this board alone who challenged the need for all the GOP voter exclusion, er, registration laws as laws addressing a problem that doesn't really exist. Hell, even if you go to the page of the main group fighting this, their list of examples is far from extensive and not nearly enough to affect even one local-level election, let alone a state or national one.

    It's ingrained in the collective wisdom of the Fox News automatons, if you can call that "wisdom." Conservatives and their favored media outlets know how to play off the fears of the ignorant. And no, I'm not saying that every conservative is ignorant because certainly that's not true. But there are quite a few that are, and conservative leaders absolutely use fear to motivate them to behave in the desired manner in the voting booth.

    They know it's not real.

    They're lying.
    boisterous hubris, arrogance, self deception, conspiracy, mud slinging mixed with a heavy dose of self righteousness.

    Because having to show an id is such an unfair burden...

    it takes months to get the proper paperwork in order to get an ID. to pass a law a few weeks before the election does not give people enough time to get the proper papers in order to get their ID. hence why those laws are unfair.

    Whatever.. Enough stupid excuses. Everytime you guys try to argue against such a common sense requirement I swear you lose another 10 IQ points...

    Everyone needs ID to do pretty much anything nowadays... Do you actually know a adult who doesn't have or in months away from getting identification?

    Re: GOP strategist: Voter fraud isn't real

    excuses? fact is voter fraud doesnt exist, so why all the sudden uproar about it? because republicans want to change the rules so they can win. its sad.

    theres no reason to get an ID just to be able to vote. get over it.

    its not the IDs. its the law changing without giving people the proper amount of time to get IDs, thus suppressing their right to vote.

    Can you cite one GOP strategy on voting access that hurts their turnout?
