GOP Efforts at Voter Suppression Continue

The GOP is continuing its efforts at voter suppression with the recent veto override in Arkansas. Governor Beebe correctly called this law an expensive solution to a non-existent problem.

Nobody is fooling anybody. These laws have nothing to do with stopping voter fraud. There have been no reputable results showing a problem with voter fraud by people who come to the polls on voting day. Everyone admits that fraud is much easier to carry out with mail-in ballots, but the GOP has made no moves to tighten up on absentee balloting, because they believe that they have an advantage among those ballots.
