#1 more than 46 percent of the reported election fraud allegations resulted in acquittals, dropped charges or decisions not to bring charges.
In other words, MOST (~54%) fraud allegations resulted in conviction. And that's despite refusal to prosecute in the most fraudulent jurisdictions.

#2 Bill Clinton signed the Motor Voter law in 1993. It was to became mandatory by 1995. I looked up the law. I found: This voter registration movement was spearheaded by Frances Fox Piven and Richard Cloward in the early 1980s. That was enough for me. These two have done irreparable harm to our country insidiously working in the background to push their Progressive and lefty agenda.
It seemed to open the door for fraud. It doesn't take many fraudulent votes to swing an election in a particular direction. Minnesota is a good example. Despite it being shown that enough felons voted to put Franken in the Senate, it doesn't seem that there is any movement afoot to nullify his win and all legislation that ensued from his swing vote.

#3 All they are saying is that the election fraud folks are better than the investigators. That's not saying much when the investigators are unmotivated.

#4 ..to include local and state prosecutors who have no real desire to get involved. Now selling a Big Slurpee or using transfat in your food demands attention!

#5 BTW, these same people who yawn about the statistical insignificance of voter fraud go absolutely apes**t about statistically insignificant use of firearms [while ignoring how many more are used to prevent violence against others].

#6 I could give a rat's @ss about this study. The states need to follow Florida's lead and ensure all registered voters are U.S. citizens and have the credentials to prove it. Period.

Not so bad.... unless you're on a demo range at Fort Bragg, or you're a National Airport Air Traffic Controller, or a cardiac surgeon, or .......

#9 The key here is:
"The analysis found that there is more alleged fraud in absentee ballots and voter registration than in any of the other categories."
"Voters" are being registered without any effort by the voter. (e.g. goldfish, dogs etc.) It is then very easy to mail in a ballot. Tightening up voter registration should be an important first step.

#10 Do we count it as voter fraud when Democrat registrars disenfranchise tens of thousands of military voters by throwing out their absentee ballots?
Do we count it as voter fraud when 2,000+ felons, voting for Al Franken, are enough to make him a Senator?
No, I'm sure those don't fit the definition. To a Dem, it's only voter fraud if they vote REPUBLICAN.
