Despite A 0.0002 Percent Rate Of Voter Fraud, Reince Priebus Claims Wisconsin Is 'Riddled With Voter Fraud'

More distraction. The Republicans are dismantling systems to prevent voter fraud, so what's this about?

Despite A 0.0002 Percent Rate Of Voter Fraud, Reince Priebus Claims Wisconsin Is 'Riddled With Voter Fraud' | ThinkProgress

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus made a curious claim on MSNBC today, alleging that Wisconsin is a state “that was absolutely riddled with voter fraud.”

The problem? A recent study by the nonpartisan Brennan Center for Justice found just seven cases of voter fraud out of three million votes cast in Wisconsin during the 2004 election, a fraud rate of 0.0002percent. All seven of these cases involved persons with felony convictions who weren’t eligible to vote after being released from prison.

Those are only cases prosecuted.

The Milwaukee county DA's would not know voter fraud if it kissed him on the lips!

We all know fraud, like Lena Taylor's "Lovehouse", gets a pass from the Democratic DA when it comes to voter fraud.

So I guess in the liberal religion of "Facts", Obama Hymns don't figure in with global warming? Methinks to little.

And, I'd bet those instances of felons voting was by mistake, rather than intentional.

Please cite alleged cases.
Please cite the total cost of voter ID law.
