    Moyers & Company [#130H] Suppressing The Vote * The fight against voter fraud is a solution in search of a problem - documented instances of voter fraud these days are surprisingly few. Nevertheless, since the 2010 midterm elections, new election laws passed by Republican-dominated legislatures in 14 states have sought to limit voter registration or require photo IDs in order to vote - identification that for many is too expensive or otherwise difficult to obtain. Such laws, according to a recent report from the Brennan Center for Justice "will make it harder for hundreds of thousands of poor Americans to vote." That's why some say the real goal isn't about fighting voter fraud; it's about enabling voter suppression. < br />This week, Bill talks to Keesha Gaskins, an attorney and co-author of that report, and Michael Waldman, president of the Brennan Center for Justice, about modern efforts to keep minorities and the poor in particular from exercising one of the most fundamental American rights. "When these votes come under attack by this level of partisan gamesmanship, it's completely inappropriate and antithetical to our history," Gaskins tells Bill. "This is a very real political issue, but beyond that, this is a real issue of real Americans being able to access and be self-determinative in how we're governed."
    * Also on the program, Bill talks with Anthony Baxter, director of You've Been Trumped!, an upcoming documentary about Donald Trump's aggressive efforts to build "the greatest golf course in the world" along ancient sand dunes on the coast of Scotland. A veteran journalist, Baxter says what Trump and even local media are hailing an economic boon is actually a disaster threatening the environment and callously disrupting peoples' lives - a perfect example of capitalism run amuck, and how the rest of us pay the price. "It seems to me there's one rule for the super-rich and one rule for everybody else," Baxter says. "And the 99% of people in the world are tired and fed up of having money and power riding roughshod over their lives and our planet. Our planet, I don't think, can afford these kinds of decisions."

Amy Walter of ABC News will have a report on how President Obama and Mitt Romney are both working to energize their campaigns ahead of their party's political conventions and the concentrated efforts both candidates are making to win independent voters in battleground states.
    * Republicans are talking about the Tea Party's big victory in Texas Tuesday night when former state solicitor general Ted Cruz upset Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst in the Republican runoff for the US Senate. Cruz, who has never been elected to public office, heads into the November election as the favorite to replace retiring Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison.

    Nazi Hunt: Elusive Justice An unprecedented investigation of the global search for the 20th Century's greatest criminals. Following the atrocities of World War II, the international community declared the Nazi party a criminal organization, and pledged to prosecute and punish those individuals responsible for the genocide of innocent individuals. During the Nuremberg Trials, approximately 1000 Nazi officials were convicted of crimes against humanity, but tens of thousands evaded prosecution - by concealing their war records, assuming false identities, fleeing Europe, or serving various Allied countries as spies or scientists. < br />Thousands of Nazi criminals are presumed to be alive. This feature length film explores how governments and institutions failed to uphold their own laws, and forced individuals to act independently - and provoke them into belated and anemic action. Featuring portraits of the men and women who conducted investigations and led manhunts over six decades, this film provides a definitive account of efforts - official and unofficial - to locate, prosecute, and punish fugitive Nazis around the world.
