Bama Fact Check gives Artur Davis claim on Voter ID a 2 of 5 rating
Bama Fact Check analysis: THE CLAIM: In an Oct. 17 guest column in The Montgomery Advertiser, former congressman and gubernatorial candidate Artur Davis explained why he now supports Alabama?s voter ID law.
?Voting the names of the dead, and the nonexistent, and the too-mentally-impaired to function, cancels out the votes of citizens who are exercising their rights ?- that's suppression by any light,? he said. ?If you doubt it exists, I don't; I've heard the peddlers of these ballots brag about it, I've been asked to provide the funds for it, and I am confident it has changed at least a few close local election results.?
SUMMARY: Voter fraud allegations emerge with almost every election cycle in Alabama, and some have led to convictions. But when it comes to the things Davis said he witnessed ? people bragging about voter fraud and soliciting participation ?- the allegations are impossible to prove. Davis won?t name names. Nor will he talk about whether he reported the alleged voter fraud to the proper authorities. -- Read the whole report --> Bama Fact Check - Did someone brag to Artur Davis about committing voter fraud Truth Rating 2 out of 5
