The biggest untold angle about this voter suppression effort is that Teapublicans have tried to restrict every form of access to the polls EXCEPT the one that favors THEM and IS ripe for fraud...namely absentee voting and vote box stuffing...one has only to look to the Supreme Court Race in Wisconsin where it appeared that the Democratic candidate had won a narrow victory until a Republican election  Read More...

STOP republican VOTER SUPPRESSION. Shut down America on election day. Everybody go vote. have a voting party...have a family get together....have a good day voting for people that will make the quality of life better for students, working families, and the elderly. VOTE ALL DEMOCRAT. If you want to make the quality of life better for fatcats(who already are living high on the hog) vote for mitt...the greedy one. IT IS THAT SIMPLE.

When you think of a Republican, what phrase becomes the operative Republican descriptive phrase?

Let me offer: "STEAL an ELECTION."

Republicans and free the slaves? NOPE! Republicans and steal an election.

Nice spin, but just about every conviction for voter fraud is a Democrat.

Except there isn't any. Voter fraud is Florida stealing the Gore votes.

Doesn't it seem that Mitt Romney is awfully Glee about his chances in November, even though the polls have him losing???????????

I believe we better start looking into his Optimism.

The race is a dead heat. And with undecideds usually breaking 2 to 1 to the challenger, Obama is scared. With his dismal record, he should be very scared.

The GOP is dying out, both literally and figuratively. The power brokers who live in the shadows understand that their only remaining option is to gerrymander and to restrict voting rights for those who won't vote for their anointed candidates.

SCOTUS can only help so much with their Citizens United rulings, but it's over an only the wiIIfully bIind can't yet see it!

No one should EVER regard the GOP as having respect for the democratic process or for democracy generally. These are the tactics that dictators around the world use to insure their continuing grip on power. It's laughable for them to call themselves patriots!

If another situation similar to Bush vs. Gore results from this election, the Democrats need to be prepared to fight as hard and as ruthlessly as the Republicans did in 2000.

But the fact remains that the Supreme Court is still ruled by partisan judges. Like in 2000, they will probably favor the Republican version to the Democratic version. They even made their decision precedent-free, meaning their decision could not be used as a precedent in any future case. Plus, Roberts is unlikely to change his vote again after the Obamacare flip. Any challenges brought to the court should occur after President Obama has replaced Justice Kennedy with a liberal appointee, which Republicans will fight against tooth and nail.

Do you know that decision do not change the outcome of the election? Do you know why the case can't be used as precedent?

Bush v Gore didn't decide the election, so what fight are the Democrats supposed to prepare for?

Yes it did. It was a squeaker in FL where Jeb Bush was governor and Katherine Harris was Sec of State. Hanging chads, tossed ballots and voter suppression, oh my. First Gore won, then Bush won, then Gore, then Bush, etc. That was a HUGE mess! And yes, the SCOTUS decided the winner of that election!

It is entirely possible that with all the hundreds of millions of votes cast each decade in federal elections that some unlawful activity might some where occur

Like wise, it is entirely possible that with all of the millions of guns purchased some unlawful activity might some where occur.

The question is, how much control should we put on each of these  co-equal constitutional rights in anticipation of stopping this unlawful activity before it occurs?

Considering that the factual rate of verifiable voter fraud in the past 40 years has been roughly 0.7 total votes PER STATE, per year, I think we can assume that voter fraud is a non-issue.

Thousands more votes are discounted as unclear or miscast than are fraudulent.

This entire voter fraud issue is cooked up by the GOP for purposes of influencing the election and preventing democrats from voting, pure and simple.

Nice.......where do you get your info?......I can direct you to a FL news station that checked 100 voter registration cards and came up with 97 people voting that should not have been voting.....wanna call me on it?

Scary and convincing article. The one bit of hope I was able to get from it, though, is the fact that the American people will still likely triumph against unlimited money and criminal attempts to disenfranchise massive blocs of voters. Once we are victorious, we should have the mandate to eradicate these offensive actions and send their implementers packing. Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but I do believe that our government is made of the people, by the people and for the people.

This is THE most important article i've read since the beginning of the election campaign.

Who cares about Romney idiocies!! The Republicans could have nominated their pet goat, it would have been the same to them!

What they want is not a President but to be in control of the process of electing THEIR President.
As long as they are, people like Rove, Cheney, Koch Brothers, Adelson will have more say in the democratic process than the majority of people living in this country!!

Romney is entertainment - a live action sitcom... The suppression effort of the GOP are real...

The "Voter ID" effort is a transparent and desparate fraud by the GOP. Their own candidates have admitted that its precise intent is to exclude specific categories of voters that rarely vote republican.

Go for the jugular.

Release Romney's tax returns.

By induction, a lot of Replican congressional candidates will collapse and go down with him!
