10 Right-Wing Election Myths Debunked by Reality in 2012
http://www.alternet.org/ten-right-wing-e...ality-2012

From the article:
Quote:One of the more stunning developments following President Obama’s re-election has been the number of ardent Republicans who have confessed that they believed the anti-Democratic propaganda from Fox News—and got so much wrong as a result.

The voting rights part of this fact-averse bubble had many dimensions: from who is and isn’t registered to vote, to when and where people wanted to vote, to what a voter must do at the polls to get a ballot, to how voter lists are updated—and who can be trusted to oversee the process.

What follows are 10 lies the Right pedaled during the 2012 campaign. Some GOP partisans, like this Nevada group, are already trying to resurrect some of these fake issues. You can be sure you’ll see more as states and Congress look at 2012’s biggest problems, such as people having to wait hours and hours to vote.

...

They include the usual idiocy, like non-citizen multitudes on voter rolls, dead people are voting (for Democrats), and go to the outrageous, like tougher voter ID laws protect minorities, the Federal Voting Rights Act is obsolete, and early voting is not wanted or needed. If the GOP and the rest of the rabid racist RW continue to be the political party for angry/scared white people, they will become a non-issue in the next few election cycles.
