Texas AG: Obamacare Would Not Be Law Without Vote Fraud

Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican gubernatorial candidate, discussed voting rights, redistricting and Texas' voter ID law at a panel in Austin on Sept. 28 and made the argument that the Affordable Care Act would not have passed into law without "voter fraud." Abbott, speaking at the Texas Tribune festival, said Minnesota Senator Al Franken won his seat, which was decided by a 312-vote margin, because of voter fraud and that his subsequent vote on the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, wouldn't have been cast.

Norm Coleman on Why Voter ID Laws Are Needed

When the polls closed on the November 2008 U.S. Senate election, I was ahead of Al Franken for the Minnesota seat by 215 votes out of nearly 3 million votes that had been cast. Eight months later, Al Franken was declared the winner of the recount with a margin of 312 votes. A few months after that, Obamacare passed the U.S. Senate on a straight party-line, filibuster-proof 60 votes....Elections matter. I have no desire to re-litigate the 2008 election, but elections matter.
