    The Fraud of Voter Registration Fraud

    It seems particularly lame and disingenuous for the Republican/McCain camps to cry "foul" over voter registration fraud. Despite studies that show that such fraud isn't extensive or exceptionally organized beyond very local levels, they keep hammering ACORN.

    ACORN (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), which is at the center of the current allegations, has a factsheet on the issue which is worth reading.

    This Washington Post article examined the issue in 2007 during the blow-up over the Attorney General firings.

    By contrast, the efforts by Republicans to exclude eligible voters under the pretext of voter fraud is both persistent and very well documented.

    These are the technical tactics of politics: making sure the right people are able to vote.
