Why the RNC Does Nothing Much About Voter Fraud

Democrats will continue to pretend there is no voter fraud on their part and if you say there is, you are undermining democracy or you’re a conspiracy theorist. The Republicans could do a lot more to fight it if only there wasn’t a court case preventing them from doing that.
Why Republicans don’t deal with it.

Republicans can’t do much about voter fraud without facing contempt of court or worse. That’s the result of a New Jersey voter intimidation case with national implications which was brought by the Democratic National Committee against the Republican National Committee in 1982.

For thirty-four years, the RNC’s ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention is limited unless the RNC obtains the court’s approval in advance.

The resulting agreement mandates the RNC but not the DNC refrain from ‘undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial or ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision to conduct, or the actual conduct of, such activities there and where a purpose or significant effect of such activities is to deter qualified voters from voting; and the conduct of such activities disproportionately in or directed toward districts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations shall be considered relevant evidence of the existence of such a factor and purpose.’

According to Judicial Review, in Democratic National Committee v Republican National Committee, New Jersey RNC officials were accused of intimidating minority voters.

The RNC settled. What they settled for to save themselves has seriously impacted elections nationally ever since. Of course, when the situation is reversed, i.e. the New Black Panthers case in Pennsylvania, nothing is done.

The judge in the 1982 case, a Carter appointee, Dickinson Debevoise, continued to control the case after retirement.

Appeals have failed to lift the order.

In a 2008 lawsuit, the definition of ballot security efforts was clarified as ‘any program aimed at combating voter fraud by preventing potential voters from registering to vote or casting a ballot,’ and upheld the consent decree but agreed to add Dec. 1, 2017 as an expiration date.

The ‘clarification’ made the situation more difficult for the RNC. They are completely hamstrung.

For over thirty years, the RNC has been kept from doing anything in ballot security. Every weekend before the election, Democrats get RNC officers into court. The RNC can’t train state parties or candidates on voter fraud prevention or even on what to do about errors.

Debevoise won’t release the RNC because he says there is still incentive to block the vote in minority areas since the majority would vote Democratic.

A small group of corrupt Republicans ruined it for all other Republicans for 35 years.

SCOTUS refused to hear the case without explanation.
