Via Sense and Snarkability, George Will reviews the ugly facts of the other campaign against Governor Walker in Wisconsin, another example of the quasi-criminalization of political dissent (see also the indictments of Rick Perry, Kay Bailey Hutchison, and Tom DeLay).

The early-morning paramilitary-style raids on citizens’ homes were conducted by law enforcement officers, sometimes wearing bulletproof vests and lugging battering rams, pounding on doors and issuing threats. Spouses were separated as the police seized computers, including those of children still in pajamas. Clothes drawers, including the children’s, were ransacked, cellphones were confiscated and the citizens were told that it would be a crime to tell anyone of the raids.

Further to last week’s discussion of voter fraud (“Four Reasons to Hold Elections on Election Day”), two related stories:

1 — America’s Watchtower, “Over 1,400 non-citizens are on North Carolina voting rolls”

This story is an update to last week’s post where we learned that 145 non-citizens were found on North Carolina’s voting rolls. . . .

The investigation is now complete and it turns out that over 1,400 people who are ineligible to vote are on the voting rolls.

My comment:  Good thing North Carolina’s government was recently taken over by reform-minded Republicans.  It sounds as though they’ll actually try to make sure these ineligible people don’t dilute the vote.

Guilty until Proven InnocentThe headline is from the liberal New York Times.

Mark Steyn and others have criticized the administrative state (such as the IRS) as acting exempt from our normal constitutional due-process rights (such as “innocent until proven guilty”).  Columbia law professor Philip Hamburger recently wrote a whole book on the subject, Is Administrative Law Unlawful?, as he explains in brief in last month’s issue of Hillsdale’s Imprimis.

I guess this is the kind of thing they’re talking about.  From the New York Times:

Your Vote Matters1. Easier early voting opens the door to more fraud.

2. If you don’t care enough to go vote, you probably don’t care enough to vote well.

3. Longer voting periods mean more expensive campaigns, more money in politics, and more entrenched incumbents.

4. Voting early means voting without all the information.

Coloradan Sarah Hoyt is concerned about her state’s recent changes to its election laws.  Laws that make it “easier” to vote also make it easier to commit voter fraud.

Republicans have a real chance of winning the Senate this November, as many have been discussing (a few examples at random).  Even if Republicans get a majority, however, they won’t continue the hard work toward repealing Obamacare unless they believe that the overwhelming majority of the American people still care about that.  Given the opportunity, there will always be politicians willing to give in and let the entitlement state keep expanding, like the sometimes great but sometimes surprisingly viciously liberal Ohio Governor John Kasich.  (Hot Air and a Washington Post blog are talking about his latest remarks on Obamacare.)
