Link: What Karl Rove ignores in his defense of the GOP’s voting restrictions push

But Rove’s defense falls short in three key ways: First, it cherry-picks some of the most anodyne changes, ignoring much more far-reaching and unusual ideas — both attempted and proposed. Second, it makes no mention that Georgia Republicans tried to go much further than the changes he mentions, but an outcry forced them to reverse course. And third, it elides questions about the scope of and stated justifications for this effort across the country.

Typical GOP twisting of facts to make it fit their desired goal of maintaining power.
