Lewis Black who can always be counted on for saying things straight from the hip is the new ambassador for voting rights and he yelled an extremely salient and very intelligent point. Elected officials shouldn’t legislate anything on how voters should vote their elected officials into office. That is just wrong and a huge conflcit of interest. What is really incredible about all of these voter suppression laws, aimed at the demographic that tends to vote democratic in elections, is that the infintessimal number cases of voter fraud that we have seen recently have all been on the republican party side. That is irony in its purest form if you ask me. For goodness sakes voter fraud is not the problem, the problem lies in the manner in which the republican party is resorting to making it difficult for ordinary people to effect their lives as citizens in the ony manner afforded to them, their vote, while at the same time the republican party has made it painfully easy for the wealthy to buy elections and legislative outcomes. That is what needs to be addressed, the hijacking of our political porcess by wealthy patrons, not the pretense of voter fraud.
