It takes tunnel vision for a person to believe that voter ID laws are racist or an act of minority suppression.
It takes a candid admission – albeit, inadvertently – to believe that proving your identity can only harm supporters of President Obama.
In short form – doing things legally is a detriment to the left.
Via The Hill:
The Congressional Black Caucus on Monday night took to the House floor to charge that voter ID laws popping up around the country are aimed at dissuading minority voters from voting, and making it harder for President Obama to win re-election.
Replace the word ‘minority’ with ‘illegal’ and the statement becomes more factual. But isn’t it astounding, that they are essentially admitting that the elimination of illegal votes would make ‘it harder for President Obama to win re-election’?
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) added that supporters of these laws have made the “misrepresentation” that there was fraud in the 2008 election, “maybe because we elected the first African American president.”
Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) also drew a connection to these laws and Obama’s election, and said he’s not sure if the laws are being advanced due to “the color of the President” or because Obama “received record-breaking participation by the very same people that they’re making it difficult to vote.”
Rangel however, being from New York, should have immediately countered Jackson Lee’s comments; for there is no “misrepresentation” of voter fraud rather, it is an accepted political tactic in Rangel’s home state.
Coincidentally, opening arguments have begun in an upstate New York ballot fraud case – a case that should demonstrate the urgent need for voter ID laws. In that case, Democrats openly admitted that “voter fraud is an accepted way of winning elections, and faking absentee ballots was commonplace” and “what appears as a huge conspiracy to nonpolitical persons is really a normal political tactic.”
That normal political tactic, possible only because of a lack of voter ID laws, has resulted in over 100 total charges for two Democrats, which include second-degree forgery, second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, and second-degree criminal possession.
Voter fraud – a normal political tactic that explicitly benefits the re-election of President Obama and the left.
Your modern day Democrat party.
