    Women tries to prove how easy it is to commit voter fraud. Commits voter fraud. Gets caught.

    5 bucks says she votes GOP. Really funny when what they try to prove backfires.

    Actually it's more like attempted voter fraud.

    Yes, best part.

    It is a REPUBLICAN who commits voter fraud, not a liberal.
    Whats more the PRO photo ID Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller is a Democrat.


    Needless to say voter fraud does happen, how much is issue.

    One of the best studies on the subject was conducted by Justin Levitt of the New York University Law School. Its conclusion is simple: allegations of widespread voter fraud are greatly exaggerated.

    But let's not forget about when JFK got elected...there were tons of DEAD voters that somehow managed to vote for him. But I would bet many of the people on this forum aren't old enough to remember that.

    Let's not pretend stuff like this happens only when connected to a republican. There are plenty of isolated cases on both sides.

    So we have to got back 50 years for a relevant example? Studies have shown that voter fraud exists in tiny percentages, TINY. Nowhere near enough to affect the outcome. Furthermore, to affect a presidential election, you'd have to get thousands, maybe tens of thousands willing to commit a felony. Do you really think that happens?

    Actually 9 democrats in New York were indited for voter fraud in 2009. There are plenty of current examples on both sides of the fence, just didn't feel this thread was worth the effort to type them.

    I never said I thought it happens enough to effect an election. My point was that it is not, as another poster commented, strictly a republican thing.
