Critics of photo ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim theyre unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent. Brennan Center attorneys Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt claimed last year: A person casting two votes risks jail time and a fine for minimal gain. Proven voter fraud, statistically, happens about as often as death by lightning strike.
Well, lightning is suddenly all over Cincinnati, Ohio. The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 possible cases of alleged voter fraud that occurred when Ohio was a focal point of the 2012 presidential election. A total of 19 voters and nine witnesses are part of the probe.
Democrat Melowese Richardson has been an official poll worker for the last quarter century and registered thousands of people to vote last year. She candidly admitted to Cincinnatis Channel 9 this week that she voted twice in the last election ...

I’m supporting changing my state to a proportional system of electoral vote allocation. That way Detroit can cheat all they want and they’ll still only the electoral votes of their district.
When one considers the cost (in blood) that was and is paid to ensure that we have the right to vote, just why do we have no effort being made to see to it that the penalty for engaging in Voter Fraud and/or Intimidation isn’t so high that nobody in their right mind would attempt to engage in it?
This is a question that we all need to pose to our elected officials.
Voter Fraud is Treason and should be treated as such.
Because no one shed blood for that cause? We fight wars for the right to vote, seriously? Since when? For freedom, yes, ideally. Though most of our wars had little to do with that. Since when was there a direct connection between voting and liberty? If there’s supposed to be somebody better tell the electorate. Because they’re opting for the opposite.
That’s a remarkably low bar for treason. What’s next, changing the channel during the state of the union address?
That has to be the most moronic post that I have seen in a very long time!
Please tell me that you are sterile......

Depends on the voter fraud, it is not treason if you’ve moved and absentmindedly voted in the wrong district.
IT IS TREASON if you voted multiple times in multiple districts during the same election.
Stuffing the ballot box is definitely TREASON.
Willful and Intentional Election Fraud is treason as it undermines the bedrock of a Republic which is elections that represent the wishes of the people.
It only undermines the bedrock of the Republic en masse. Each individual vote threatens nothing. I am not willing to punish people for what their actions amount to piled up with everyone else’s. Crimes must be malum in se, or evil in themselves. Not evil when considered among a crowd of other people’s actions.
Voter fraud is bad in itself, however it is nit treason in itself. You do realize the wages of treason is death? You seriously want to sentence people to death for voter fraud?
You actually believe in democracy? I mean, as something to die for? Seriously? Maybe if you’ve never thought it through, and merely mindlessly repeat what elementary school taught you. But liberty is the thing, boy voting. The vote has fairly well proven to be not useless but ultimately impotent in preserving liberty. You can always say things’d be worse without it, and I might agree. But not only has it failed to preserve a constitutional system of government; it has actively fought against it.
By the way, do you think we fought WWI to “make the world safe for democracy,” or the Civil War to keep a government for the people, blah, blah, blah, from perishing from the earth? Do you also believe in fairies?

Yes I would if it was a case of clear intent on defrauding the system and changing the outcome of an election such as modifying voting machines, stuffing the ballot box, throwing out valid ballots en masse just to start.
Voting is a HUGE responsibility, counting the votes is an even BIGGER one.
If an illegal alien is caught voting illegally they should be viewed as a foreign agent attempting to undermine the system of government and treated as a de facto war criminal, those who sign them up to vote should be viewed as a traitor as well.
IMHO, the GOPe agreed to this outrageous agreement so the party bosses would have an convenient excuse they could tell to the party functionaries and rank-n-file as to why they threw a per-determined election to their "opponents". Like when Mitt took a dive for his pal Obama, not saying a word about massive open, vote fraud and sabotaging his own GOTV drive.
That agreement does not prevent anyone from changing voter eligibility laws, nor prosecuting voter fraud, nor challenging anything after the election, nor preventing anyone who isn’t the RNC or a GOP official from doing anything whatsoever.
