Catherine Englebrecht, the Houston businesswoman and mother who founded True the Vote in 2009 after witnessing an ACORN-style group registering thousands of illegal or nonexistent voters in Houston, told the voter observers from 32 states gathered for the summit: “There is nothing more important this year than your work in making sure legitimate votes aren’t canceled out by fraud.”
Liberal groups ranging from the ACLU to the NAACP oppose voter-ID laws, claiming that voter fraud is almost nonexistent and that an ID requirement would amount to voter suppression. It’s certainly true that in-person voter fraud — the type of fraud most easily fought with voter-ID laws — isn’t the whole picture. Voter-ID laws must be combined with tighter controls on absentee ballots, the tool of choice of fraudsters. But filmmaker James O’Keefe demonstrated just last month how easy — and almost impossible to detect — voter impersonation can be: A white 22-year-old assistant of O’Keefe’s was offered the Washington, D.C., primary ballot of Attorney General Eric Holder, the most visible opponent of ID laws.
This needs to be widespread, because vote fraud sure is.

***Dan Savage's web site celebrates Occupy vandalism. This is the jerk who founded "It Gets Better," an anti-bullying campaign, but he's nothing but a thug himself.
Dan Savage may have apologized for calling Christian students “pansy-assed” for walking out on his anti-religious diatribe, that that’s not stopping his newspaper from pushing property destruction. Savage is editorial director of The Stranger, an alternative website; today, The Stranger ran a column subtly titled, “Why All the Smashy-Smashy? A Beginner’s Guide to Targeted Property Destruction.”
