Voter fraud is quite uncommon. In fact, the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University's School of law, which has conducted an ongoing examination of voter fraud claims, refers to the supposed "problem" as a " myth ."

However, if we employ the standard of those who claim that there really is a voter fraud crisis in America, then there is a case that is worthy of note. And it involves Liz Cheney's husband.

Liz Cheney is running for the US Senate in a 2014 Republican primary. But she is not running in her long-time home state, Virginia.

Rather, she is running in distant Wyoming -- which her father, permanent Washington fixture Dick Cheney, used as a political redoubt for congressional service to the Reagan administration in the 1980s.

The Wyoming run has been an inconvenient one for Liz Cheney. She has been forced to uproot herself from a comfortable life in suburban Washington, and to buy an expensive new home in the one reliably Democratic county in Wyoming. She has struggled to figure out how to obtain a fishing license, after initially overstating her history in the state -- and paying a fine for "[failing] to meet residency requirements as required." And she has had to declare her opposition to her sister's right to marry.

But it hasn't just been tough on Liz Cheney.
