New NM Vote Fraud Investigation

It is frequently claimed that concern over vote fraud is unwarranted, that there are few or no false or fraudulent voter registrations, and that little or no vote fraud actually takes place.

If that's the case, then

  • Why were more than 201,700 voter ID cards (over 18%) sent out by the New Mexico Secretary of State in 2006 returned as undeliverable by the Post Office?
  • Why did New Mexico's then-U.S. Attorney, David Iglesias, fail to take any action on vote fraud cases even when he reportedly had an iron-clad case and a confession (a failure to act that was apparently at least partly responsible for his termination).
  • Why did the New Mexico Secretary of State, in the earliest phase of investigation, find dozens of voter registrations by individuals holding non-citizen drivers licenses? (New Mexico is one of only two states to issue drivers licenses to non-citizens.)
Now a new voter fraud inquiry by the State Police is beginning, with more than 64,000 cases (more than 5% of all registered New Mexico voters) being referred for investigation.

The evidence is piling up. How much more must we find before we finally take some appropriate action? It seems to me appropriate steps would include implementation of a strong voter ID requirement, followed by a full culling of the voter lists to get rid of the moved, dead, and nonexistent voters.

And this is just in New Mexico, without saying anything about the voter registration fraud and vote fraud that have been found in other states.
