How the Case for Voter Fraud Was Tested — and Utterly Failed

Jessica Huseman at ProPublica:

That made the trial a telling opportunity to remove the voter fraud claims from the charged, and largely proof-free, realms of political campaigns and cable news shoutfests and examine them under the exacting strictures of the rules of evidence.

That’s precisely what occurred and according to [Chief District Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Kansas, Julie] Robinson, an appointee of George W. Bush, the proof that voter fraud is widespread was utterly lacking. As the judge put it, “the court finds no credible evidence that a substantial number of noncitizens registered to vote” even under the previous law, which [Kansas Secretary of State Kris] Kobach had claimed was weak.

No surprise. There’s never been any–ANY–credible evidence of anything even approaching the runaway voter fraud claimed for decades by Conservatives.
