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, Austin to highlight the attack on election reforms launched inside by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder went to Texas to denounce the Lone Star State’s voter ID laws and claimed that simple voter ID laws were somehow discriminatory. Holder ominously claimed that he would use the power of his office to “enforce civil rights protections” during the upcoming 2012 elections.
Outside the LBJ Library nearly 200 citizens gathered to hear a multi-racial panel of six speakers denounce Holder’s partisan attempts to push the administration’s agenda to turn a blind eye to continuing voter fraud that consistently favors candidates from the Democrat Party. The rally was sponsored by the Houston-based True The Vote, a grass roots voter integrity project staffed by volunteers.
This irony highlights how bogus the Democrats’ opposition to voter ID laws is:
One last bit of irony — if not hypocrisy — was experienced as people lined up to enter the LBJ Library to hear AG Holder rail against voter ID laws. As each person entered the library they were required to present their photo IDs in order to be allowed in to hear the speech.
Heh. Everyone has identification, except when it comes time to vote.
