Still No Voter Fraud in America

NPR reports:
In a Pennsylvania court filing, the state says it has never investigated claims of in-person voter fraud and so won't argue that such fraud has occurred in the past. As a result, the state says, it has no evidence that the crime has ever been committed. The state also says it won't present "any evidence or argument" that in-person voter fraud is likely to occur on Election Day if the voter ID law isn't enacted.
To me this seems like outright surrender, since the courts have always said states can't limit anyone's civil rights without a good reason, and the state has just admitted that there is no problem here that needs a remedy. Maybe the Attorney General never liked the law?
