The attack from the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats on state voter photo ID laws has been well chronicled on The Hayride.
The administration recently blocked such a law in South Carolina and Democrats wanting to see Obama re-elected continue to fight to make sure that every phony vote is counted this November.
Attorney General Eric Holder showed his cards last month on the DOJ’s effort to pull the plug on states working to protect ballot integrity at a speech given at the LBJ Library in Austin, Texas, in which he likened the new laws to Jim Crow laws of the Old South. New voter photo ID enacted by states are currently under review by the DOJ, according to holder.
Other moves to continue the practice of fraudulent voting includes motor-voter lawsuits flied against state election officials for violations of Section 7 of the National Voters Registration Act of 1993 by the DOJ and ACORN. Section 7 concerns registering to vote through entitlement programs. The Obama Administration has ignored violations of Section 8 of the law, which deals with removing fraudulent names from voter rolls. Sen. David Vitter called the DOJ out on their selective prosecution in a letter to Holder.
Democrats argue that photo ID voter laws harm minorities and the poor, because they can’t possibly be expected to come up with the $20 needed in most states to get a valid photo ID to vote. They say that there are other safeguards in place to protect the integrity of the process and no one really fraudulently votes anyway.
Why do we need photo ID voter laws? Well, if you want to know how easy it is to commit voter fraud in places that don’t have these laws, watch this new video by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe of Project Veritas.
In the video, filmmakers use the names and addresses of dead people to see if they would be allowed to vote as Democrats in the New Hampshire primary election yesterday:
Very telling. The dead can receive ballots and can even register to vote, if they failed to do so while alive, with no proof that they are who they say there are in places that don’t have photo ID requirements. Do we really need to keep arguing that these laws are needed? The answer is “yes we do,” as long as Democrats are running the DOJ.
