How Do You Get Into the NAACP Convention to Hear Eric Holder Say That Voter ID Laws Are Racist?

Featured image Of course: you have to present a “government-issued photo I.D. (such as a driver’s license).” You can’t make this stuff up, but it happens over and over. We noted the same thing when Holder traveled to Texas to speak at the LBJ Library on the evils of voter ID. Also when Michelle Obama did a book signing. Do you think you can get anywhere near Michelle Obama without a photo »

You Can’t See Michelle Obama Without Photo ID

Featured image This is one more installment in a long-running story: you need a picture ID for just about everything you do–buy beer or cigarettes, board an airplane, cash a check, drive a car, buy a fishing license, check into a shooting range, get into the Department of Justice to see Eric Holder, or most other federal buildings–but liberals claim there are millions of people walking around (they have to walk, they »

How Many Non-Citizens Will Vote In Florida?

Featured image As Hugh Hewitt says, If It’s Not Close, They Can’t Cheat. But in Florida, the Democrats’ ability to cheat may surpass any normal definition of “close.” Reuters reports: “Florida says 180,000 non-citizens may be on voter rolls.” Florida election authorities are examining about 180,000 people who they say may not be U.S. citizens but are registered to vote in the state, an official said on Friday. State officials are updating »

Democrats Say: Arrest the Messenger!

Featured image Beginning with the ACORN videos that he made with Hannah Giles, James O’Keefe has been a thorn in the side of liberalism. Most recently, he has gone after the voter fraud issue, demonstrating in a series of videos under the rubric Project Veritas how easy it is to vote illegally. Here in Minnesota, he and his colleagues obtained, with no difficulty, ballots in the names of “Tim Tebow” and “Tom »

Eric Holder Votes!

Featured image The latest from Project Veritas is being headlined by Drudge. A young man walks into a polling place in Washington, D.C.–the precinct where Eric Holder lives–identifies himself as Holder and asks for a ballot. No identification? No problem! “Eric Holder”–that is, anyone in the world who shows up and identifies himself as Holder–can cast a ballot in the Democratic primary. The video is intercut with footage of Holder denying that »

Identification: It’s Good For Everything Except Voting

Featured image PJTV’s Scott Ott carries out an entertaining undercover investigation: he goes to the offices of several groups that denounce voter identification laws as unconstitutional suppression of minority votes, etc., and tries to get in to see someone. Sure enough: they all require identification, including the Department of Justice, which has sued to invalidate voter identification laws. You have a constitutional right to petition for redress of grievances, but if you »

U.N. to Investigate U.S. Voter I.D. Laws

Featured image This is really the last straw. It is time to get out of the United Nations: “UN rights council delves into US voter I.D. laws.” The United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating the issue of American election laws at its gathering on minority rights in Geneva, Switzerland. This, despite the fact that some members of the council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote, and »

Dismantling the Phony Case Against Voter ID [Updated With Right Video!]

Featured image Here in Minnesota, an overwhelming majority of voters are disgusted with the state’s lax voting laws. Polls indicate that a large majority support a voter identification requirement. Our legislature–in Republican hands after the 2010 election–passed a voter ID law, but it was vetoed by Democratic Governor Mark Dayton. So the legislature is now working on a proposed amendment to the Minnesota Constitution that in all likelihood will be on the »

The Vikings Are A Lock For the Super Bowl In 2013!

Featured image Really! Why? Because Tom Brady has moved to Minnesota, presumably in order to play for the home team. Not only that, we will have Tim Tebow as his backup. Seriously! »

The Deceased Vote in New Hampshire

Featured image It is an article of faith on the Left that there is no need to protect the integrity of the ballot, e.g. by voter ID laws, because there is hardly any voter fraud. They assure us it’s true, but how can they know, since in many states no effort is made to prevent voter fraud or to catch those who perpetrate it? James O’Keefe made the point yesterday in New »

Obama’s DOJ Strikes a Blow

Featured image We have been following the Obama administration’s effort to grease the skids for the 2012 election by enabling voter fraud, with the cooperation of various left-wing groups. Eric Holder announced at a speech at the Lyndon Johnson Library in Austin that the Department of Justice would take a hostile view of the various statutes that states have enacted to protect ballot integrity. Thus, it was no surprise when DOJ announced »

Dems Still On the Losing End

Featured image We have been covering the Democrats’ effort to improve their 2012 electoral position by beating back the efforts of numerous states to prevent voter fraud. Eric Holder is the point man for the Democrats in this campaign. While stirring racial division may help energize the Democrats’ base, it appears that the anti-ballot integrity movement will not be popular with the broader electorate. Scott Rasmussen finds that an overwhelming 75% support »

A Report From the LBJ Library

Featured image We have been following the Obama administration’s effort to team up with left-wing activists to promote voter fraud and stymie the states’ efforts to protect ballot integrity. At Big Government, Warner Huston reports from Austin, Texas, where Eric Holder spoke at the LBJ Library, and where a pro-ballot reform group held a counter-demonstration: On Tuesday, December 13 a rally was held near the LBJ Library at the University of Texas, »

Holder Unveils Voter Fraud Program

Featured image I wrote here and here about an apparently coordinated effort by far-left organizations and the Obama administration to demonize and frustrate the states’ efforts to protect ballot integrity by preventing voter fraud. Tonight, the Obama administration put its cards on the table when Attorney General Eric Holder delivered a speech on “voting rights” at the LBJ Library in Austin, Texas. The text of Holder’s remarks is here. There was, of »

Obama Administration Coordinating With Left-Wing Groups on Voter Fraud?

Featured image I wrote yesterday about the lightly-attended march in New York, ostensibly on behalf of voting rights, which was sponsored by a broad coalition of left-wing groups and was addressed by several Democratic politicians. While the number of participants was small, the affair had all the signs of a semi-official Democratic Party initiative. Sure enough: Nation magazine notes that Eric Holder will deliver a “major speech on voting rights” tomorrow, and »

How Rare Is Voter Fraud?

Featured image Conservatives are generally concerned about voter fraud, while liberals, almost universally, are not. That in itself tells you something. Of course, liberals don’t explicitly come out in favor of voter fraud; rather, they argue that lax enforcement of election laws is no problem because voter fraud hardly exists. The problem with this easy assurance is that we have no clear way to know how prevalent voter fraud is. By definition, »
