Photo ID: Women, minorities hardest hit

Featured image Today’s Minneapolis Star Tribune features a page-one story by Jim Ragsdale opposing the proposed Minnesota constitutional amendment requiring photo identification for voting. The story’s genre is a familiar one. It’s the genre mocked by the parodic New York Times headline: “World to end tomorrow: Women, minorities hardest hit.” The story is illustrative of the Star Tribune’s pathetic coverage of the photo identification amendment. The Star Tribune has served as the »

The Ritchie ratchet, part 4

Featured image Thanks to the Minnesota Supreme Court, Minnesota voters will be allowed to vote on two proposed Minnesota constitutional amendments when they go to the polls in November. Despite the best efforts of the League of Women Voters and Democratic officials, proposed amendments protecting traditional marriage and requiring photo identification for voting will be on the ballot as the Legislature directed. Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie — forgive me for »

The Ritchie ratchet, part 3

Featured image Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie — the Man from SOROS — has done himself and his office no honor with his high-handed attempt to undermine the proposed Minnesota constitutional amendments protecting traditional marriage and requiring photo identification for voting. Ritchie sought to undermine the proposed amendments’ chances of passage by toying with the ballot titles prescribed by the legislature. Today the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that, in doing so, »

The Ritchie ratchet, part 2

Featured image Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie — the Man from SOROS — opposes the proposed Minnesota constitutional amendment that would require photo identification for voting. Ritchie gave a stemwinder of a speech (“in his personal capacity,” of course) opposing the amendment at the state Democratic convention this summer. I posted the video in “The Ritchie ratchet.” I think the amendment is a great idea, as do most Minnesotans. The opportunities »

The Ritchie ratchet

Featured image I’ve written here and here about the proposed amendments to the Minnesota Constitution that are to appear on the ballot in November. Proposed by the (Republican) legislature, (Democratic) Secretary of State Mark Ritchie — the man from SOROS — has given new titles to the amendments through which he seeks to undermine their adoption by the voters. One of the two proposed amendments would enshrine the definition of marriage as »

The Battle for Ballot Integrity in Pennsylvania

Featured image Pennsylvania is, for the moment, ground zero in the battle over voter fraud. In March, Pennsylvania’s legislature enacted a law that requires identification for voting. The ACLU has sued to enjoin enforcement of the law; a trial on its lawsuit began today and is expected to last for around a week. This illustrates how low the ACLU has fallen. Voting illegally–that’s a “civil right!” But how about not having your »

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 »
