Surprise: Republicans Fundraising Off Voter Fraud Allegations

Last week I had a blog post entitled Democrats Fundraising Off Voting Wars in PA Voter ID Suit, which began:

Christian Adams reports.

One of the main claims I make regarding voter i.d. in The Voting Wars is that the battle over voter i.d. is as much (if not more) about motivating the base and raising funds by both parties than it is about having a great effect on voter fraud or voter turnout.

So this news came as no surprise. From a fundraising email from Rob Gleason, chairman of the Pa. Republican Party: “Every illegal vote cancels out a valid vote, so thanks to Philadelphia voter fraud, your vote doesn’t count.”

Notice the emphasis on Philadelphia voter fraud.  In this universe, it is only the urban-minority-union machine which engages in voter fraud.
