The Iraqi Solution
Josh Marshall has an overnight answer to all the 'voter fraud' nonsense that really needs to be mainstreamed. I don't know why nobody else has pointed this out before.
At the end of the day, the only conceivable thing you’re trying to prevent with Voter ID is voter impersonation fraud and voter impersonation fraud only makes sense if you’re going to try to double vote. And the ink and finger routine is basically 100% obstacle to doing that.
I’d be happy to dip my finger. And it wouldn’t disenfranchise anyone. There’s really no problem to be solved on the voter fraud front. But if people insist that this ‘problem’ needs to be solved even though there’s no evidence of the problem, then this should be the solution.
How the hell can anyone argue with that?
