Voter fraud and the right to cast honest ballots

Dissolving his national commission on voting fraud, as President Trump did last week, was certainly the right thing to do. There was little evidence of such fraud in the first place, and the commission didn’t turn up any new polling skulduggery.

If such a commission shouldn’t have been formed in the first place, well, that’s water under the bridge. Vice President Mike Pence, its chair, showed little enthusiasm for an obsessive meme that seems to be the president’s alone, that “millions” of fake ballots were cast for Hillary Clinton in November 2016, and that’s the reason she won the national popular vote.

When the president threw in the towel and got rid of the commission he had formed only last May, he tweeted: “Many mostly Democrat States refused to hand over data from the 2016 Election to the Commission On Voter Fraud. They fought hard that the Commission not see their records or methods because they know that many people are voting illegally. System is rigged, must go to Voter I.D.”
