Tony Norman points out the underlying hypocrisy of the gut out the vote movement. After citing Pennsylvania’s legal stipulation that no cases or prosecutions for voter fraud are known to exist in Pennsylvania, he observes:
Despite the fact that there are plenty of laws against voter impersonation and ballot fraud, Republicans want to add another layer that would shed thousands from the rolls to prevent a crime that doesn’t exist.
Now, imagine if this was a debate about gun control. Wouldn’t conservatives be the first to scream that enforcing existing gun laws is all we need to do to stem the tide of death and violence and that adding new laws would only threaten Second Amendment rights?
