Hans von Spakovsky, only recognizable to a small percentage of Americans, has over the past two decades had a tremendous impact on our right to vote.

Currently, von Spakovsky is serving on the Federal Elections Commission. He was appointed by Bush as a recess appointment in late 2005 over the objections of Congressional officials and voting rights groups alike.

Why would a man whose career is dedicated to the area of voting rights be challenged so vigorously for a position on this country's highest Election Board? This series attempts to answer that question.
