John Deam: Illegal voters and voter suppression

George Boardman’s “Center Stripe” was completely correct when he wrote “Take your pick: When Democrats lose an election, it’s because of voter suppression. When Republican lose, it’s because of illegal voters.”

However, the kicker is the Democrats’ loss in an election is indeed caused by voter suppression … but it is the suppression of voters who don’t have the legal right to vote.
