Now THIS Is Entertaining – Dems To Require Photo ID At Convention

Courtesy of the Boston Examiner

Far left wing Democrats scream that anyone who is for Voter identification at the polls is a racist who hates the poor and is trying to disenfranchise voters.  It is beyond ironic that Democrats are requiring photo i.d. to all who enter their convention this weekend in Springfield.  From theirconvention materials:

Registration and Credentials

Apparently the Left got the memo that the majority of voters, including Democrats, want voter i.d. to be put into place.  Or maybe they learned their lesson from the massive Caucus fraud that occurred against Clinton for their buddy in the White House.

That this would surface in the same week that Eric Holder, our illustrious Attorney General, held a controversial confab with black ministers using the requirement legislated by several states that voters show a picture ID at the polls to proselytize Democrat activism this fall, was quite tasty. At that confab, the assemblage was treated to this…

At that confab was Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who had this to say…

Meanwhile the Democrat Party has put out a comical study indicating that Republicans are out to disenfranchise 23 million of their voters and waste a billion dollars on voter ID laws…

The suppressive effects of these bills are well-documented: 11 percent of Americans—approximately 23 million citizens of voting age—lack proper photo ID and, as a result, could be turned away from the polls on Election Day. Those without photo ID are disproportionately low-income, disabled, minority, young, and older voters. Numerous non-partisan organizations have debunked claims of widespread voter fraud, the purported basis for these laws.

The Voting Rights Institute has studied the impact of photo ID laws using the actual costs incurred in Indiana and Georgia—the two states that have implemented photo ID laws—and considered the cost estimates from 17 states where photo ID laws were introduced this year.

In 2011, Republicans have advanced photo ID legislation in at least 35 states. The report concluded that if these 35 states enact a photo ID law, they collectively will spend at least $276 million, and possibly as much as $828 million, in the first four years alone. At a time when states are experiencing huge budget shortfalls, it would be an enormous waste to spend hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to disenfranchise voters.

…but when it comes to their convention, nobody gets in without an ID.

We’re reminded of this…
