After Disbanding Voting Commission, Congress Needs to Investigate Trump for Fraud

I’d like everyone to take a moment to let the reality sink in that this current “president” just created, then disbanded, a federal commission supposedly looking into “massive voter fraud” during the 2016 election in a matter of only a few months. Keep in mind, Donald Trump still maintains that millions of people voted illegally […]

Mike Pence’s Press Secretary Pushes Ridiculous Conspiracy About Voter Fraud

Since Republicans realize they can’t win elections based on their outdated (and often inhumane) policies, over the last few years they’ve taken to pushing the myth that “rampant voter fraud is a threat to our democracy.” That’s been the absurd argument Republican-controlled legislatures all over the country have used to support the strict voter ID […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Election Day Special, Jesus Stands at the Door with a Glock

Knock-knock! Good Lord, what is it now? I do not keep office hours on Sunday mornings—especially the Sunday morning before an Election Day! I’ve got a gaggle of judicial candidates, each begging me to read the morning announcements. Parents are complaining that the new elephant slide in the Noah’s Ark nursery sends the wrong message […]

Megyn Kelly’s Absurd Voter Fraud Lie on Fox News Gets Debunked by Rachel Maddow and Colorado News Anchor

The fact that we’re even having this debate about voter fraud is absurd. The legitimate and documented cases of voter fraud are so rare that the odds of witnessing it lie somewhere between winning the lottery twice and seeing a unicorn. But despite the overwhelming evidence disproving the myth of voter fraud, Republicans all over the […]

Rush Limbaugh Pushes Conspiracy that Voter Fraud Might Be the Reason Why Democrats Keep the Senate

You know how often I heard the term “voter fraud” prior to 2008? Practically never. You know why that phrase was rarely uttered? Because voter fraud isn’t – and has never been – an issue. And no matter how much Republicans try to act like it is, it’s just not. There’s absolutely zero evidence anywhere showing that […]

The Real Way Republicans Plan to Rig Elections and Disenfranchise Voters

The last several years these new voter ID laws have often made headlines.  Most notably because they tend to target voters that tend to vote for Democrats.  And since the Supreme Court overturned parts of the Voting Rights Act, Republican controlled states have wasted no time passing new laws that seek to rig elections to […]

With One Ridiculous Comment, Mike Huckabee Manages to Unite the Left and the Right Against Him

It’s not often that liberals and conservatives can get on the same page when it comes to much of anything nowadays. Even things that shouldn’t be controversial like science and history can cause heated disagreements among the left and the right.  So when a conservative ex-politician and Fox News commentator manages to anger both the […]

When Conservative Logic Supports a Progressive Cause: Guns & Voter ID

Whenever I try to debate gun policy with conservatives, I always hear the same arguments. The most common one is that new gun laws, such as universal background checks, only affect law-abiding gun owners. Well, it’s time to use a little conservative logic for a liberal cause. It’s time to look at this exact argument in […]

Iowa Republican Finds “Shocking” Number of Cases of Voter Fraud During 18-Month Investigation

The assertion by many Republicans that “rampant voter fraud” makes stricter voter ID laws necessary is probably in my top five most ridiculous things Republicans claim. Not only is voter fraud not an issue — in any way — but their furious attempts to find it have produced laughable results. Yet none of this has […]

Restricting Voting Access — Guess Where the GOP Is Doing It Now?

Remember how just a couple months back, in what could be considered a Republican attempt at sabotaging the race for governor, nearly 40,000 people were purged from Virginia’s voter rolls? Well, the Republican Party is at it once again, and this time it’s Wisconsin. Yes, Wisconsin – the home of two of the most reviled […]
