To Defeat GOP’s Restrictive Voting Laws, Debunk ‘Voter Fraud’

Growing up in Jim Crow Arkansas, Bill Clinton saw how the state’s dominant political and racial elite maintained power by suppressing the rights of minority voters who threatened its authority—and as a young activist, worked to bring down that illegitimate power structure.

‘Billionaires & Ballot Bandits’: Going Postal

In 2012, it is expected that about 26 million votes will be mailed in. And, in the name of preventing voter fraud, about one in 14 will be tossed out. That’s nearly 2 million votes tossed in the gotcha! dumpster.

Study Finds In-Person Voter Fraud Is Rare (Video)

An analysis of more than 2,000 alleged voter fraud cases over the last decade shows that the occurrence of such fraud is infinitesimal and that in-person voter impersonation is virtually nonexistent. But 37 state legislatures have enacted or are considering tough voter ID laws in the run-up to the 2012 election. Why?

Who’s Afraid of ACORN?

Who knew that “community organizing” and “ACORN” would become two of the most mischaracterized and maligned terms during this election season? Well, as a few key members point out in this must-see clip from Brave New Films, ACORN had some idea this might be coming.

GOP Affiliate Accused of Duping Voters to Register as Republicans

The Los Angeles Times randomly contacted dozens of voters who were recently re-registered as Republicans and found that over 80 percent of them didn’t know they had joined the party’s ranks. How did this happen? Looks like a GOP contractor called Young Political Majors, or YPM, had something to do with it. Update: The cops are on it.

Team Obama Asks for Special Prosecutor to Investigate Voter Fraud

By way of a response to the McCain camp’s claims about Barack Obama’s ties to ACORN, Obama’s campaign has put in a request to Attorney General Michael Mukasey to “turn over any investigations of voter fraud or voter suppression to Special Prosecutor Nora Dannehy, the same special prosecutor recently appointed to investigate the U.S. attorney firing scandal,” according to CNN.

More Dirt on the GOP’s ‘Voter Fraud’ Campaign

Ousted U.S. Attorney David Iglesias says he believes he was fired, in part, for failing to meet the obsessive demands of a nonprofit organization with ties to the Republican Party that allegedly sought to limit the voting rights of minorities.  Is there a more heinous political practice than the disenfranchisement of minority voters after so long a struggle?
