Liberals look to facilitate voter fraud

James Taranto:
When President Obama declared victory last November, you might have missed the way he spun his voter-turnout triumph into a grievance: "I want to thank every American who participated in this election, whether you voted for the very first time or waited in line for a very long time," he said on election night, adding: "By the way, we need to fix that."

He returned to the subject at his inauguration: "Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote." And in his State of the Union address on Tuesday, the president is expected to call on Congress to enact new voting legislation. Several liberal Democrats have already introduced a bill styled the Voter Empowerment Act of 2013.

The effort is a cynical partisan undertaking, according to election lawyer Hans von Spakovsky. In December, some "three dozen of the most powerful liberal advocacy groups, including union organizations," held a strategy session, he says, citing a report from the liberal magazine Mother Jones. They agreed to "oppose all voter integrity efforts, things like voter ID," to push for federal legislation requiring states to permit voter registration on Election Day, and to institute "automatic" voter registration.
...
There is much more.

Democrats want to keep their voter fraud efforts viable.  That is why they oppose voter ID which would expose their schemes to register non existent voters under false names with addresses for vacant lots or store fronts.  In the process they insult the intelligence of blacks and elderly people they claim to be protecting.

The same day registration process has been used to bus people into states like Wisconsin that already have such laws so that they can carry those states for Democrats.  We should oppose all efforts to facilitate election theft by Democrats or others.
