Members of the Democratic Congressional Black Caucus on Monday charged that voter ID laws are intended at preventing blacks from voting and are specifically aimed at defeating Barack Obama.

“It is clear to me that whether racially based or not, this is a direct attempt, not only to undermine the election process, but a specific attempt to derail what surely would be and ought to be the re-election of Barack Obama,” Rep. Donna Christensen (D-VI) said on the floor.

So, according to these Democratic elected officials, blacks are either too stupid to carry ID, or are all criminals who fear being identified. What bigotry.

Or maybe these Democratic elected officials simply want to maintain the possibility of voter fraud.

    “Or maybe these Democratic elected officials simply want to maintain the possibility of voter fraud.” BINGO ! !

    Considering we have to show some form of ID to get on a plane, or if a policeman pulls you over while driving, and a whole host of other situations, why is it so much to ask that we show ID to vote? Voting is one of our most precious rights – and ensuring that elections are fair & valid would seem to be at the top of the list of priorities to ensure we really have a gov’t of, by & for the people. The argument that it’s just too difficult or puts an undue burden on certain classes of people doesn’t hold water – most (if not ALL) the states that want voter ID laws say they will provide one free of charge if the voter doesn’t already have a driver’s license or other valid ID. There really can be only one reason for opposing Voter ID…
