Re "Protect Arizona voting rights," Editorial, March 20 The people of Arizona approved a law requiring evidence of citizenship to vote. They are the ones suffering the worst effects of illegal immigration, not those of us in California. You note that the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals concluded that voter fraud in Arizona is not a "significant" problem. Must it be "significant" to do something about it? There should be no voter fraud at all. And who today in this country does not have a Social Security card or some form of photo identification?

A Virginia judge has dismissed eight felony counts against a Republican Party campaign worker who threw voter registration forms in a dumpster. Colin Small, 23, still faces misdemeanor charges related to the incident in October, according to his lawyer, John Holloran of Harrisonburg, Va. But the felonies were thrown out during a preliminary hearing Tuesday, Holloran said in an interview. “I think they charged it three days after the event and thought it was the tip of the iceberg and that there was this huge voter fraud conspiracy that was occurring,” Holloran said.

A Los Angeles jury on Tuesday convicted state Sen. Roderick D. Wright on all eight counts in his perjury and voter fraud trial. The Inglewood Democrat was indicted by a Los Angeles County grand jury in September 2010. He had pleaded not guilty and said he thought he had been following the law in 2007 when he took steps to run for the seat he has held since late 2008. In a trial that began Jan. 8, prosecutors accused Wright of faking a move to a rental property he owned in Inglewood so he could run in what was then the 25th Senate District.

WASHINGTON - The son of a Virginia congressman resigned from his father's campaign Wednesday after an undercover video captured him discussing possible voter fraud. Patrick Moran, whose father is Democratic Rep. James P. Moran, was secretly recorded in a video posted by conservative activist James O'Keefe. In the video, Moran, who was working as his father's campaign field director, talks about using utility bills and other documents to evade Virginia's new voter ID laws.

A grand jury unsealed a 24-count felony indictment on Wednesday against Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarcon and his wife, Flora Montes de Oca, saying they committed perjury and voter fraud when they listed their home as being in Panorama City.

Steve Cooley's Public Integrity Division, the criminal grand jury accused Alarcon and his wife of falsely claiming that their home was at an address in Alarcon's 7th Council District, which takes in a portion of the northeast San Fernando Valley.

Admittedly, I don't get a lot of my news from Fox News. But when I saw this headline Wednesday, “Non-citizens caught voting in 2012 presidential election in key swing state,” well, let's just say they had me at “non-citizens caught voting.” Like Mitt Romney weeks later, and Karl Rove on election night, Fox has its own way of spinning the 2012 election. But hey, if voter fraud cost Romney Ohio, that's big news - bigger than President Obama being born in Kenya, bigger than Obamacare as the worst government disaster ever, bigger than Benghazi, bigger than Obama's uncle whom he did/didn't know, bigger than, well, you get the Fox(y)
