None of the anti fraud laws passed by GOP failed to stop real fraud in NC

The GOP has passed many so called anti fraud laws in many states to insure that no fraud occurs in our elections. Of course most the the laws seem more aimed at voter suppression than stopping non-existent fraud. My question is would voter ID, purging of voter roles, shortening early voting or reducing the number of polling places in Dem areas have stopped the type of voter fraud that happened in North Carolina? I don't think so, do you? I have to admit they do reduce the number of Dem voters that can get to the Polls. Now who would that help?

That's because these measures targeted voters, not conspirators.
