Two stories about the hollow hypocrisy of the Republican gut out the vote movement. Two nuggets.
First the facts: it’s all hypocritical hype:
A new nationwide analysis of more than 2,000 cases of alleged election fraud over the last dozen years shows that in-person voter impersonation on Election Day, was virtually nonexistent.
The analysis of 2,068 reported fraud cases by News21, a Carnegie-Knight investigative reporting project, found 10 cases of alleged in-person voter impersonation since 2000.
Monica Yant Kinney writes of lawyer and ex-prosector Tia Sutter, who is has never driven a car and is now disabled:
“I know I could convince a jury of 12 peers beyond a reasonable doubt that I am who I am,” Sutter tells me from her home in East Falls. But so far, neither PennDot nor the Social Security Administration (SSA) agrees about her identity.
“They tell me I don’t exist.”
