RE :”Literally hundreds of individuals man permanent stations, full time, at these groups. They benefit from tens of millions of dollars in funding. They bring lawsuits under federal and state statutes ranging from the Voting Rights Act, Motor Voter law and the Help America Vote Act. They station teams of election observers in polling places around the nation every election to fuel their litigation and their media efforts. Almost nobody opposes their efforts.

He forgot one of the last actions of the failed Republican congress in 2006 re-newing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 without changes that regulates elections in certain states and mandates ballots in Spanish.

Some States are passing new election laws but the real problem at the root of this articles complaints is federal laws passed like motor voter that Republicans never tried to repeal when in power, too busy trying to buy votes for the short term .

Our party never does ANYTHING. That is why the Tea Party was founded out of pure frustration!

Even if all the Republicans in the senate stuck together, they couldn't get the 60 votes to get it repealed. Also there were quite a few RINOs who voted for Motor Voter. I'm sure quite a few RINOs would oppose its repeal.
