Demos Fellow and voting expert Tova Andrea Wang on voter supression.   Tova outlines the history of voter suppression in the US and how it went from a local problem to a national - and Republican - strategy in the 1960's.  Tova's new book, The Politics of Voter Supression from the The Century Foundation is ripping the mask off of the so-called voter fraud scam being used by Republicans nationwide to suppress voting in Democratic districts.  The charges against a major Republican voter registration firm - the Romney campaign firm -  this week underscores how keeping people from the polls has become an integral part of Tea Party and Republican victories, threatening to end demomcracy as we know it in America. 2:08 pm
