A Federal judge in Washington, D.C. just upheld the right of 3 states to require voters prove their citizenship before voting.
And what the judge said in his opinion is amazing! President Barack Obama has to be furious:
But Judge Richard J. Leon said that while it may be an inconvenience to require proof of citizenship, and voter registration drives may have to do more work to get folks signed up, it’s not an insurmountable burden — and certainly less so than trying to explain Obamacare.
“The organizational plaintiffs and their members will undoubtedly have to expend some additional time and effort to help individuals,” Judge Leon wrote. “But let’s be candid: doing so pales in comparison to explaining to the average citizen how the [Affordable Care Act] or tax code works!”
Since the voter groups didn’t show a real and irreparable harm, he rejected their request for a preliminary injunction.
The ruling is the latest in a years-long struggle by some states to combat potential voter fraud by insisting voters prove they are citizens. In one Kansas count alone, officials count 25 instances of non-citizens attempting to register to vote.
Liberal Democrats always claim voter I.D. laws are racist, and somehow people shouldn’t be expected to carry I.D. to vote.
You need I.D. to get a job, open a bank account, rent a movie, or even enter a government building. So isn’t it racist to say minorities are unable to have I.D. with them? Most states will offer identification cards for free.
The truth is, Democrats want to repeal voter I.D. laws so they can commit mass-fraud on election day, without accountability. Registering illegal aliens and using the names of people who are longer living are some of the famous tactics used by Democrats for many decades.
Voter integrity is essential for fair elections.
