The debates on voter ID seem ridiculous to me. As a long time observer of Chicago politics, it seems absurd for anyone to argue that vote fraud is not a problem. Here "Vote early, vote often" is a cliche. Liberals often say requiring ID to vote is racist. Are they trying to make the US safe for vote fraud? If not, are Liberals willing to have heavy federal supervision of inner city voting places where the fraud by political machines is often rampant? Just one example: Harold Washington was elected mayor of Chicago by a lot of Indiana voters who crossed state lines to register at friends' addresses.
