Numerous incidents of voter fraud have been proven. There is no question or dispute about voter fraud.
North Carolina decided to try and do something to minimize the possibility to commit voter fraud. A new law was passed requiring individuals to resent identification before being allowed to vote. They also reduced the number of days allowed for early voting to 10 days. Finally, the eliminated same-day voter registration.
This law is very similar to laws in several other states. It also applies to everyone regardless of gender or race. This didn’t stop Eric Holder and a number of race-obsessed activists to claim the law is discriminatory.
“The state legislature took extremely aggressive steps to curtail the voting rights of African-Americans,” Holder said late last year.
“This is an intentional step to break a system that was working,” he alleged; “and it defies common sense.”
Attorneys representing the DOJ, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the League of Women Voters, showed up in Winston-Salem Monday to demand a preliminary injunction regarding certain aspects of the law.
NAACP President Rev. William Barber called the law “a full assault on the franchise of voting,” while Irving Joyner, a lawyer representing the organization, made it clear where his client’s loyalties lie.
“Our focus is on the turnout of African-Americans,” he said, disregarding empirical evidence showing the new law has had no impact on poll traffic.
Absolutely no one has shown any proof that requiring ID’s to vote discriminates or discourages voter turnout. However, there is factual data showing the contrary.
Why does Eric Holder feel compelled to spend tax payer money on issues like this but refuse to conduct legitimate investigations on the IRS scandal or pressing charges against Lois Lerner? Why don’t all these people focus their energy of the 14 killed and 82 shootings in Chicago over the weekend?
Does this seem ridiculous?
