Election 2012

Breaking News! Rampant Voter Fraud in Iowa!

And by "rampant" I mean "practically nonexistent."

There were over 1.5 million votes cast in Iowa on election day. And Iowa's Secretary of State, Matt Schultz, has discovered exactly... eight cases. Eight out of 1.5 million.

That's .00053% of the vote. None of them appear to be malicious. But if you calculate voter fraud cases based on convictions, the fraud percentage of the vote is 0%. Zero. None.

So, naturally, Schultz is using these eight cases to push for the passage of a Voter ID law in Iowa, which would, like every other state that's passed one, disenfranchise Democratic voters.

Shocker: Schultz is a Republican. Again, your Republican Party seems to be tenaciously pursuing a solution for a problem that doesn't exist.
