Voter Fraud in The Constitution State

For John, BLUFNot Connecticut!  Nothing to see here; just move along.

We got to the article in the New Haven Register via Weasel Zippers, on a link from the Instapundit.  The headline reads:
Bridgeport State Rep. Christina Ayala arrested on 19 voting fraud charges
The second paragraph reads:
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.
And she apparently pulled her poor Mother into this imbroglio.

I am not sure requiring voter ID would have uncovered this sooner, but it might well have acted as a deterrent.  Or not.  It would appear, from the web site of Connecticut Secretary of State Denise W Merrill that an ID card is required to vote.  And, Ms Merrill is a Democrat.  I wonder if voter fraud would be worse if there was no voter ID requirement?

Hat tip to the Instapundit, who commented, "And yet, I keep hearing it’s a myth".

Or a "dog whistle".  That is, accusing Republicans of talking about voter ID is a dog whistle to Democrats saying that Republicans wish to suppress certain minorities.  "Oh what a tangled web we weave…"
