As if yesterday’s report on the massive ballot fraud case in upstate New York wasn’t disconcerting enough, here is a video provided by James O’Keefe and the Daily Caller, showing ballots being handed out in New Hampshire in the names of dead people. Shockingly enough, one of the election workers specifically says they can get away with this because in New Hampshire, “no ID (is) needed”.
Aren’t the Democrats the ones vehemently trying to fight voter ID requirements on the grounds that it’s racist?
In an op-ed yesterday, Newt Gingrich explains why requiring identification, something the Obama administration and Eric Holder have fought tooth and nail, is imperative for the integrity of one of our most important civic duties: voting.
But requiring a photo ID to vote is a common-sense security measure that helps ensure those without legal citizenship don’t vote, those with multiple homes or properties only vote once and that no one votes in place of another. Voters are harmed when illegal or fraudulent votes are cast, as they dilute or discount legitimate votes cast by honest Americans.
