Washington Times Tackles Strawman

Good for the Washington Times.  They’ve once again proved that those who say “there’s absolutely no voter fraud” aren’t telling the truth.  Never mind that no responsible observers are actually saying “there’s absolutely no voter fraud.”  (Whether proposed measures address more prevalent or exceedingly rare kinds of fraud, and whether the measures themselves create more problems than they solve – now we’ve got an actual discussion.) 

This editorial is about Connecticut State Rep. Christina Ayala, charged with 19 counts of election crimes based on allegedly voting in districts where she did not have valid legal residency for voting purposes at the time.  That sort of misconduct does indeed happen (though misunderstandings about voting residency also lead to more claims than actual instances of misconduct).
