On his show Thursday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart blasted Republicans in Pennsylvania and Ohio for attempting to suppress votes in the upcoming November elections. Noting that there have been only 10 cases of in-person voter fraud since 2000, Stewart slammed Pennsylvania for enacting a tough new voter ID law. He also blasted overt discrimination in Ohio, where the state secretary eliminated the extended hours for early voting in Democratic districts.
