8 and 0

That's right, as So Far, So Left pointed out, in the general election of 2006 there were a total of 8 (eight) complaints of voter fraud, all concerning absentee and 0 (zero) having to do with identification fraud at the polls. Yet, we need a constitutional amendment, just in case. By injecting language about identity theft into the rhetoric, Georgia Republicans like Sen. Staton are trying to scare voters into supporting a wedge issue. He is counting on Georgians ignoring the facts, acting on emotion and supporting his legislation. He is banking on the strength of "brain stem voting." Here's hoping we prove him wrong.

Amy, is the text of Cecil's bill available? I'd love to see what kind of weasel wording he's employed.
