The last presidential election produced a number of documented claims of Democrat voter fraud. A group known as truethevote.org has examined the many allegations and readied a list of voter fraud claims they have found to be credible and genuine
Among Americas registered voters more than 1,800,000 have been proved to be dead. This of course provides more opportunities for fraud by the Party that survives on voter fraud. In Maryland dead people have registered (guess which Party got their check mark) and voted AFTER their death. Over 2,750,000 people are registered to vote in at least two states.
We know about these breaches in our ballot box security because of the diligent work of volunteers eager to help the Republican structure fight back. So why hasnt the RNC raised its voice in protest over these outrages?....
In 1982, for no apparent reason but to go along and get along, then Republican Senate MAJORITY Leader Howard Baker entered into an agreement with the Klu Klux Klansman from West Virginia Democrat Senator Robert Byrd which in effect barred Republicans from pursuing suspected cases of voter fraud without first getting a federal courts approval.
This agreement came about because Democrats in New Jersey, arguably the corrupt state in America, complained that Republicans had been investigating voter fraud in predominantly minority districts.
Among the specific charges was that off duty police officers posted themselves at polling places to help insure voting integrity.
Incredibly Baker agreed that Ballot Security be defined as any program aimed at combating voter fraud by preventing voters from registering to vote or casting a ballot. Thus ANYTHING Republicans do to stop Democrat voter fraud in any organized fashion can and is labeled Ballot Security to get federal judges to end it.

Can anyone point to anything that the RINOs made a deal on that worked out?
The gop needs to stop using this law as an excuse not to purse voter fraud... we all know laws never stop the left.
This is an old debunked claim dredged up by a blog.
Not that the claim itself doesn’t have a kernel of truth — simply that the court agreement referenced doesn’t keep the GOP or anybody else from investigating actual fraud.
But it just sounds so cute to conflate a real issue of minority voter intimidation and suppression with real work to prevent voter fraud. It is only sad that it is our own side that is doing this to us now, rather than the left.
