Congratulations Republicans, voter integrity...getting worse!!!

From Brad Blog:

Well, bad news --- of a sort. This year's new Election Integrity Project report [PDF] is now out. It takes into account the 2014 mid-term elections in the U.S. and more elections in a number of additional countries. It appears the U.S. has fallen a few pegs from it's 26th place ranking in last year's report [emphasis in the original]...
[C]ontests in the United States scored the worst performance among any long-established democracy. Hence the 2012 Presidential elections was ranked 42nd worldwide, while the 2014 mid-term Congressional races was ranked 45th, similar to Colombia and Bulgaria. One reason is that experts expressed growing concern over US electoral laws and processes of voter registration, both areas of heated partisan debate.

  1. Our sanctified elections vanished after Citizens United. Before that, the Koch bros. and George Soros were loudmouthed billionaires. Now they play an insane game of chicken with their billions to see who gets put on the ballot.
