Gee. I wonder where this could be.
...In the largest county in Wisconsin, only 709,854 people are adults eligible to vote, but a stunning 954,008 names are on the registration lists.
Certainly not the County named after the City with 7 years' increases in taxes (of the last 8), unemployment up the wazoo, a 20++ decrease in property-values over the last 4 years, a HS graduation rate in the lower 60's, and a Mayor still LIVING in the '60's?
No. Couldn't happen there.

Well, I found the linked article somewhat interesting and was getting ready to comment on some of the particulars.
Then I got to the end about the Al Franken and the felons thing, and it all fell apart. Because what the author claimed was demonstrably untrue.
As we know, Franken won in the end (officially) by 312 votes. There is no evidence that there were "over a thousand convicted felons that were ineligible to vote that cast ballots". The figure the "think tank", the so-called Minnesota Majority came up with was 480. 270 of those ballots were immediately eliminated because they didn't match to actual felons and because some of those felons actually could legally vote. That leaves 210, far short of the margin of victory EVEN if you assume that 100% of the felons voted for Franken. And how would a photo ID have prevented a felon from voting?
Hard to get the energy to question any of the rest since this careless inaccuracy questions the accuracy of the rest of the anecdotes. I will say, though, that the fact that someone swears to be a non-citizen does not preclude them from committing perjury to get out of jury duty. They wouldn't be the first.
I will agree that voter rolls need to be cleaned up as long as no caging is involved. The thing is, government needs to be bigger than a bathtub to have the capacity to do some of this legwork.
I'm not against photo ID in principle. The problem is, current and new laws impact minority, aged and young voters at a provably higher rate than others. You set up a system that impacts all voters the same and then put enough voting machines and booths in minority precincts to meet demand, and then we'll talk.
Anything else is voter suppression.
Oh, and by the way. Based on the article, it appears that these voter fraud cases are not so "undetectable" after all.
"...In the largest county in Wisconsin, only 709,854 people are adults eligible to vote, but a stunning 954,008 names are on the registration lists."
Major fail in logic, Dad29. We are to expect that every single one of the 244,154 in question are (D)'s who committed voter fraud?
"The right-leaning watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing twelve states to force them to clean up registration lists because they each have counties with more registrants than residents. Former Justice Department official J. Christian Adams says there are 259 counties nationwide that fall into that category."
Yep, it's a STATES RIGHTS issue as you keep harping about. Officials are clearly not doing their job--either they inadequately trained to perform their tasks or the procedures themselves they are to follow are flawed.
You got some linky-love to all of those factoids there Jim?

There are 244,154 OPPORTUNITIES for vote-fraud, Jimbo. Your logic skips a few steps.
Here's one of many. My post above is the larger of two counties, but there is still no proof that an adequate number of felons to sway the election voted illegally or that 100% of them voted for Franken.
"There are 244,154 OPPORTUNITIES for vote-fraud, Jimbo."
That's anony to you. And "opportunities" does not equate to "actual happenings", nor does it mean that every single one of those individuals are (D)'s. Just stop while you're behind, ok?
