|When you consider how that in 2011, Republicans have promoted the Koch Brothers-funded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) voter photo ID legislation in at least 35 states. The Brennan Center For Justice has an exhaustive analysis summarizing that “Fourteen states have passed restrictive voting laws and executive actions that have the potential to impact the 2012 election, representing 185 electoral votes, or 68% of the total needed to win the presidency.” All of these laws are spawned by the Republican myth of “rampant” voter fraud, which has continued to be proven as a “problem” occurring in the 0.0004% range.Beside using photo ID legislation to disenfranchise voters from performing their basic American right with voter intimidation efforts, Republicans and the Romney campaign want to use bullying tactics to scare voters from voting or make it more difficult.|
