Opinion: GOP legislators are working on a plan to put 17 “anti fraud countermeasures” on every ballot. But how much is too much given that they’ve never actually been able to find any fraud?

Test ballots are hand counted, July 14, 2021, in the Wesley Bolin Building at the Arizona State Fairgrounds, Phoenix, Arizona.
This just in, from the front lines of the Republican Party’s epic battle against imagined ballot fraud.
The House Appropriations Committee on Monday approved a plan to use special “anti-fraud” ballots in all future state and federal elections.
Basically, Arizona would have the Buzz Lightyear of ballots, complete with holograms and invisible inks and stealth numbers and more than a dozen other whiz-bang, covert “countermeasures” designed to combat fraud.
You know, the stuff Republicans and their ninja auditors have been unable to find despite 16 months of searching and one massive UV-lighted, 5G photographed exercise in embarrassment.
