Election Integrity Is Essential for True Democracy
While members of both parties have been convicted of election fraud, an extensive database compiled by the Heritage Foundation shows that the majority of such cases involved Democrats stealing votes. Moreover, when voting fraud occurs, it most often occurs in precincts that tend to vote heavily for liberal candidates. The point in my recent interview was that such facts explain why those on the left are so opposed to fighting election fraud — precisely because they benefit from it. It is obvious that curtailing illegal behavior that benefits one group at the expense of another might benefit the latter group, but that is certainly no argument against enforcing the law. Stopping voter fraud simply makes it harder for fraudsters to steal elections.
