Those who say there is no voter fraud, don't know

John Fund, Hans A. von Spakovsky:
Why Trump's probe of voter fraud is long overdue

...
... just last week, President Obama told a whopper at his last news conference that went almost completely unnoticed, much less criticized.

He promised he would continue to fight voter-ID laws and other measures designed to improve voting integrity. The U.S. is “the only country among advanced democracies that makes it harder to vote,” he claimed.

This is demonstrably false. All industrialized democracies — and most that are not — require voters to prove their identity before voting.

Britain was a holdout, but last month it announced that persistent examples of voter fraud will require officials to see passports or other documentation from voters in areas prone to corruption.

The real problem in our election system is that we don’t really know to what extent President Trump’s claim is true because we have an election system that is based on the honor system.

What we do know, despite assertions to the contrary, is that voter fraud is a problem, and both sides of the political aisle should welcome a real investigation into it -- especially since the Obama administration tried so hard for eight years to obfuscate the issue and prevent a real assessment.
...
There is much more including discussion of some actual cases.

The point I have been making is that because Democrats have actively tried to suppress voter integrity laws, they can't claim with any certainty that there is no voter fraud.  They just don't know and their so-called experts are just speculating.  Their speculation is no more valid than Trumps.  That is why there needs to be a real investigation.
