It is highly questionable whether Democrats would control the U. S. Senate without election fraud. So no wonder 16 Senate Democrats have asked the Justice Department to investigate whether Voter ID endangers “voting rights”. They are Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, Michael Bennet of Colorado, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Dick Durbin of Illinois, Patty Murray of Washington, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Benjamin Cardin of Maryland, Mark Begich of Alaska, Tom Harkin of Iowa, Herb Kohl of Wisconsin and Tom Udall of New Mexico.
I have little doubt Eric Holder and any number of liberal judges would like to override the states and the vast majority of voters and quash Voter ID. A political firestorm may be coming on this issue.
Clifford of Red Stick Rant and Louisiana illustrates well why Voter I.D. is necessary to protect the voting rights of legitimate voters:
The Bayou State has had a picture ID requirement for some years, and I find it no intrusion. We require photo identification for things far more pedestrian than the sanctity of the Vote. You have to pony up a picture ID to buy beer, buy smokes, cash a check, get on a plane, or rent a car. I'm glad the requirement is there, actually, and I have first hand experience as to why: After returning to Louisiana from 7 years in New England, I found I had continued to "vote" in Orleans Parish for five of those seven years - even though I was lawfully registered to vote in Newton, Massachusetts, and had never come back to Louisiana to vote during that time.
But his Senior Senator Mary Landrieu doesn’t want to lose any of her “votes”. How do you think she got elected in the first place?
