More strong evidence, this time from Iowa, that voter ID has nothing to do with voter fraud.

Iowa Attorney General Matt Schultz, a voter ID superfan, has been conducting a huge investigation of voter fraud. He found some. But not much: a group of ex-felons who registered and voted when they shouldn't have been allowed to; a handful of people who voted in Iowa and another state in the same election; and a few noncitizens who voted. A grand total of 117 cases.
