Voter Fraud

Lefties like to say "voter fraud is a myth", as if saying it enough times will make it so--or rather, will make people believe them.  In all the stories I've ever seen about voter fraud, though, only one time was the perpetrator a Republican, and this story isn't it:
A Virginia Young Democrat working for a Democrat-aligned voter registration group got caught filing applications on behalf of dead people when he filed an application for a deceased World War II veteran who was known by a local clerk.

Andrew Spieles, a James Madison University student working for HarrisonburgVotes, confessed earlier this month that he submitted 19 applications for deceased individuals, according to a report in the local Daily News-Record.
That Democrats don't want to address this issue is one of the data points that leads me to believe that the Republic is gone, that we're just going through the motions but have already sunk into tyranny.

Update, 10/3/16:  You want more?  I got more right here:
So today we learn that in the key swing state of Virginia, voter registration rolls have been polluted with an excess of a thousand aliens, and most certainly far more.  This detailed study by the Public Interest Legal Foundation, or PILF, (which I assisted on) documents more than one thousand aliens on the voter rolls. It provides the government documents with the names.

Here’s the most frightening part: the sample is only eight Virginia counties and doesn’t include the behemoths of Arlington and Fairfax Counties. I’ll get to why that information is being concealed by election officials in a moment below.

In just eight Virginia counties, 1,046 alien non-citizens successfully registered to vote. Mind you, these are just the aliens who were accidentally caught because when they renewed their driver’s license, the told the truth they were a non-citizen.

That’s because of Motor Voter.
I wonder what parties these aliens registered under...
Virginia has no citizenship verification requirements like other states do, so the vulnerabilities in Motor Voter are amplified.  Voter ID is no solution either. These aliens are getting registered to vote when they are getting their photo ID cards!

Some groups like it this way.
I'm sure those groups are all affiliated with one particular political party.
It is illegal for a convicted felon who is incarcerated or in a half-way house to vote in Pennsylvania. Yet the lists of eligible voters in Philadelphia, and probably across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, contain the names of thousands of ineligible felons. No effort whatsoever is made to either remove these registrations or even annotate the record in case an absentee ballot request is made. 
Just sayin'.

Update #2, 10/8/16:  More myth:
Opponents of measures to improve ballot integrity like to deny that voter fraud exists. “Voter fraud is very rare, [and] voter impersonation is nearly non-existent,” asserts a statement by NYU law school’s Brennan Center entitled “The Myth of Voter Fraud.” That claim, so common on the left, is based on an assumption that election officials are on the lookout for fraud and mistakes. But incidents in states from Virginia to Pennsylvania to New York show that too many election officials are ignoring or even covering up the systemic problems brought to their attention. One way not to find something is simply not to look. According to a 2012 Pew Research Center survey, one out of eight American voter registrations is inaccurate, out-of-date, or a duplicate. Some 2.8 million people are registered in two or more states, and 1.8 million registered voters are dead.
Update #3, 10/8/16:  It's almost like Democrats would never win if they didn't cheat:
State Rep. Christina “Tita” Ayala, D-Bridgeport, was arrested Friday on 19 voting fraud charges.

Ayala, 31, is accused of voting in local and state elections in districts she did not live, the Chief State’s Attorney’s Office said in a press release.

The arrest warrant affidavit also alleges Ayala provided fabricated evidence to state Election Enforcement Commission investigators that showed she lived at an address in a district where she voted while actually living outside the district, according to the release.

Well, the New York Times tells us peons in flyover country that voter fraud is mostly mythical, that perhaps it does happen occasionally, but it's not really enough to be worried about. Like you point out, it may be because voter fraud nearly always benefits their favorite side (liberals, progressives, or the Democratic party).
Sure, there are examples of voter fraud on the other side of the political spectrum...but from what I can see (after reading story after story after story about this) is the ratio is skewed heavily, at *least* 20 to 1 (and that's very likely lowballing the ratio), in favor of the D party.
Clearly, the powers that favor the D party follow a certain mindset: they are so clearly AFRAID of the other side, and that the other side CHEATS to win (of course they cheat, since how else can their bad ideas ever win?!), that they can't risk fair voting. So the end (progressivism! socialism! yay!) justifies the means for them. And in the case of the NYT, they calmly look the other way and pretend to us that the water coming from the sky is in fact not rain.
