Coincidentally, just as Jane Mayer publishes a hit piece on Hans von Spakovsky, repeating the canard that voter fraud never happens and that demands for integrity at the ballot box are simply racist attempts to divest minorities of the vote, I come across an interesting, and seemingly unrelated immigration decision from the Seventh Circuit. Keathley v. Holder (along with its companion case, Kimani v. Holder) involve aliens facing deportation for committing voting fraud, illegally voting. The opinions don't reach this issue, but it doesn't take a lot of reading between the lines in Keathley to see a substantial chance that Chicago machine bureaucrats were systematically (or at least recklessly) artificially inflating the voting rolls with ineligible voters. Not that I expect any investigation because, after all, the position of the administration is that voting fraud is something invented by conservatives to rationalize such horrific things already approved by the Supreme Court such as voter-ID requirements.
