"‘The myth of voter fraud.’"

Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law take on the Bush administration’s prosecutor purge excuses: “[T]he notion of widespread voter fraud, as these prosecutors found out, is itself a fraud. Firing a prosecutor for failing to find wide voter fraud is like firing a park ranger for failing to find Sasquatch. Where fraud exists, of course, it should be prosecuted and punished. … Yet evidence of actual fraud by individual voters is painfully skimpy.”
