Has Ms. Wasserman-Schultz any statistical evidence of voter fraud to lightening?

Chances of being struck by lightening: 1/5000
Chances of someone stealing your vote at the polls: 1/15,000,000

Someone stealing your vote isn't the most common example of voter fraud. Most commonly, it's committed by people voting multiple times under assumed / created names, generally taken from dead or non-existent persons, or by people who are not legally permitted to vote like illegal aliens and felons.

All of these issues are voter registration issues. None of the Photo ID laws address voter registration fraud. In fact, teh laws passed by REpublicna legislatures will make it easier for illegal voters to vote and harder for legal voters to vote.

SO we have 20+ new laws that do NOTHING to address voter fraud, but will prevent legally registered voters from voting. Republicans shoudl be ashamed of themselves.

If the poll workers adequately verify the IDs, it will be next to impossible for illegals to vote.

Once again, you have proven your stupidity on the townhall forums. Are you some sort of e-masochist who comes here just for the sake of getting beaten down?

John is giving us a great example of liberal stupidity. At least one party is concerned about our elections!
In the eyes of the Obama administration, most Democratic lawmakers and left-leaning editorial pages across the country, voter fraud is a problem that doesn't exist. Allegations of fraud, they say, are little more than pretexts conjured up by Republicans to justify voter ID laws designed to suppress Democratic turnout.

That argument becomes much harder to make after reading a discussion of the 2008 Minnesota Senate race in "Who's Counting?", a new book by conservative journalist John Fund and former Bush Justice Department official Hans von Spakovsky. Although the authors cover the whole range of voter fraud issues, their chapter on Minnesota...
