Rick Hasen hands Steve Benen THE voter suppression, oops, voter fraud picture
it doesn't get much clearer than this...
Submit To PropellerAmong Republicans it is an "article of religious faith that voter fraud is causing us to lose elections," [Royal Masset, the former political director of the Republican Party of Texas] said. He doesn't agree with that, but does believe that requiring photo IDs could cause enough of a dropoff in legitimate Democratic voting to add 3 percent to the Republican vote.
And that, my friends, is what the "voter fraud" game is all about.
