Vice President Biden claimed voter ID laws were evidence of hatred and zealotry during a Black History Month event yesterday in Washington.
Ignoring the fact that voter ID laws were declared constitutional in a 2006 Supreme Court decision written by John Paul Stevens, the Courts then most liberal justice, Biden is continuing the fact-free assault on anti-voter fraud measures.
When such laws arent hateful they are unnecessary. The Brennan Center for Justice says voter fraud is essentially irrational so it almost never happens. Voter fraud is so rare youre more likely to get hit by lightning than find a case of prosecutorial voter fraud, insists Judith Browne-Dianis, co-director of the liberal Advancement Project.
Well, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation disagrees. Not a state known for its hateful politics, Iowas DCI wrapped up its investigation this month and has referred more than 80 cases of voter fraud to county attorneys for possible prosecution. Since the investigation was initiated by GOP Secretary of State Matt Schultz a year and a half ago, five people have pleaded guilty to voter fraud and 15 others are facing charges.
Iowa governor Terry Branstad told IowaWatch.com that such investigations cut down on voter fraud because they increase the risks for perpetrators...

Des Moines Register: Database not key to state voting probe
FINALLY a state is doing something about VOTE FRAUD.....99%of which are DEMOCRATS!!
Yeahhhh ... wellll ... if we feel like it.
It IS the “Just Us” Dept., so you are right, ONLY a Republican will be charged!
There should be a severe penalty for voter fraud. Let’s say a mandatory prison sentence of 25 years. If it is as rare as they claim it is, why would the libs bother to object to such a proposal?
Voter fraud is hate. We hate cheaters, liars and crooks stealing elections.
biggest voter fraud of 2010? lois lerner formerly of the treasury dept.
When the rats say we are haters, they are pretty much right on. I hate rats. They are enemies of the people.
“....voter ID laws were declared constitutional in a 2006 Supreme Court......”
Then what is the delay in getting voter ID’s? Just DO IT for God sake!
Criminal illegals get n * times the welfare for
every vote fraud they make.
IT IS WORTH IT FOR THEM.
How about the death penalty? It would certainly cut down on repeated fraud in subsequent election. At least there would be less repeat offenders!
The case for voter ID laws becomes much stronger when voter fraud is seen as part of a larger pattern of election tampering by Democrats.
The harassment by the government of the Tea Party group "True the Vote" is an example. "True the Vote" was attacked in part for trying to get election monitors into local precincts.
Showing that Democrats have committed both vote fraud and have used the government to interfere with election monitoring is a potent combination.
it is a crime to take so long in bringing these cheats to justice. Why the delay??
Look for Eric Holder to order Iowa to stand down.
80 potential cases were referred to county prosecutors. They 've only had 5 convictions since 2012. According to local media, those 5 weren't deliberate.
Methinks Schultz is using this as a springboard to a seat in Congress.
Just one of many issues where Republicans politicians are working tirelessly for justice. /sarc
