Recently, a liberal group known as the Voter Participation Center has been mailing out voter registration forms to Democrat-leaning groups. The forms have key information already filled in, but the recipients aren’t exactly the type of individual you’d expect to find at the ballot.
Via the AP (h/t Weasel Zippers):
The voter registration form arrived in the mail last month with some key information already filled in: Rosie Charlston’s name was complete, as was her Seattle address.
Problem is, Rosie was a black lab who died in 1998.
A group called the Voter Participation Center has touted the distribution of some 5 million registration forms in recent weeks, targeting Democratic-leaning voting blocs such as unmarried women, blacks, Latinos and young adults.
But residents and election administrators around the country also have reported a series of bizarre and questionable mailings addressed to animals, dead people, noncitizens and people already registered to vote.
So a liberal organization is trying to get certain voting blocs out to the polls – dogs, dead people, dead dogs, illegal aliens, etc. Or, more accurately, staunch Democrats.
Here’s the unintentionally funny gem in the story. Liberals have long been opposed to voter ID laws, citing them as racist. But election officials in this story aren’t worried about the pre-filled registration cards being submitted illegally, and here’s why…
Several election officials said they believed the voter registration systems were secure enough to catch people who might improperly submit the misdirected documents, since registrants typically have to furnish ID and election managers use databases – such as death records – to see if someone should be disallowed.
If liberals are correct in saying that requesting voter ID is considered racist, but the only way to prevent fraudulent voting activity is through voter ID, then there is only one conclusion to be drawn here.
Liberals believe that only blacks, Hispanics, and other minorities would break the law by voting illegally.
Now that is truly racist…
