As we’ve written for Yale Law & Policy Review, the right to vote includes the right not to have your vote diluted by fraudulent votes. And as citizens, each of us has a duty to comply with reasonable measures to ensure that our elections are free and fair. In that vein, even liberal Justice John Paul Stevens agreed with moderate and conservative Supreme Court justices that voter-ID laws are constitutional.

But instead the Obama-Holder Justice Department has a different philosophy of voting rights and our Constitution, and their allies have gone to notorious violators of human rights and the democratic process in a transparent political bid to discredit political opposition as this administration pursues a disturbingly-divisive political agenda going into the 2012 election.
