People like O’Keefe think voter ID laws are a common sense way to prevent voter fraud; people like Holder say they address a problem that doesn’t exist, and the laws would give officials new pretext to keep legitimate voters from casting ballots.Mike, who used to be active in grass-roots politics here in DC before getting the WaPo job, is being unbelievably generous by characterizing O'Keefe that way. No doubt he's also trying to avoid the liberal bias label that got Dan Froomkin fired. But, Mike doesn't know how O'Keefe thinks. Neither do I, but I'm willing to be less charitable than Mike. I would have said that People like O'Keefe think that voter id laws are an easy way to steal elections. I also tend to believe that he's impersonating Holder not because he's the symbol of liberal oppression, but because Holder is virtually invisible as far as cabinet members go. If O'Keefe really had cajones, he'd impersonate Hillary Clinton. Not gonna ha pen.
