Chris Christie Is Very Worried about Voter Fraud

CHRIS CHRISTIE CONTINUES TO ENDEAR HIMSELF TO HIS HEAVILY DEMOCRATIC STATE–Mollie Reilly: “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) vetoed a bill Thursday that would have made it easier for people to register to vote, claiming the measure would increase voter fraud. The bill, passed by the state legislature, would automatically register voters when they apply for or renew their driver’s license, driver’s permit or state identification, unless they specifically opt out of registering. Supporters of the legislation argue simplifying the process will increase voter participation, save money and decrease errors on voter rolls, which can lead to disenfranchisement. Christie, however, argued the bill would only open up opportunities for cheating at the polls―despite the extreme rarity of voter fraud. ‘This is just like a cocktail of fraud,’ Christie said of the bill Tuesday, according to the Asbury Park Press.”
