    Revisiting the Supreme Court's Rebuttal of Voter ID Detractors

    The Justice Department’s lawsuit against South Carolina has rekindled political war over state voter identification laws.

    Scribecast: John Fund Explains Why Voter ID Laws Benefit Minorities

    Common Sense Voter ID Upheld ... Again

    In a decision that was virtually unnoticed in the media (imagine the stories if the holding had been different), the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the constitutionality of Georgia’s voter ID law on January 14 in Common Cause v.

Despite the fact that this report aired before election day and involved … More

    Morning Bell: The Most Fraudulent Election Ever

    According to federal election law, any presidential campaign that participates in public financing is automatically audited after an election. When Barack Obama broke his promise to the American people by forgoing the public financing system, his campaign became the first since public financing became law to have a chance of … More

    Inquiring Minds Want To Know

    It must really be tough to be a public affairs guy at the Department of Justice who has to explain why the Civil Rights Division is not carrying out its enforcement responsibilities. I have posted previously about the failure of the Civil Rights Division to enforce the Help America Vote … More

    Who's Supervising the Supervisors

    Great editorial by the Wall Street Journal today noting the Department of Justice’s suspiciously selective criteria when it comes to investigating voting issues: Justice has also failed to enter the fray in Ohio. As many as 200,000 new voter registrations in that state are suspect, yet Democratic Secretary of State … More
