The Senate had a great inquiry into deceptive practices in federal elections. Wow!!! The Democrats must have grown a pair. They went over things like Voter Caging. It is well worth watching.

Civil rights advocates and election law scholars testified on legislation introduced by Senator Charles Schumer that imposes criminal penalties on deceptive practices and voter intimidation in federal elections. Some of the issues they discussed were the constitutionality of the bill and recent state voter identification laws.
