Eric Holder "Stupidly" Fights Against SC Voter ID Law


A Column by the Editor
web posted July 4, 2012

COLUMN – US Attorney General Eric Holder is continuing to fight South Carolina's duly passed Voter ID law claiming, in a nutshell, it is racist. Yes, because South Carolina is not an "Obama" state and our Governor Nikki Haley stood up to Obama and won in the fight against the unions and the NLRB we are targeted. Hell hath no fury like a narcissist scorned.

An Associated Press (AP) report on Tuesday stated the following: "I remain unable to conclude that the State of South Carolina has carried its burden of showing that the submitted change in Section 5 of Act R54 neither has a discriminatory purpose nor will have a discriminatory effect," Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez wrote in a letter Friday to an attorney representing South Carolina in its lawsuit against U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson sued Holder after the federal government blocked South Carolina's photo ID requirement in December, saying it could keep tens of thousands of the state's minorities from casting ballots. It was the first such law to be refused by the federal agency in nearly 20 years.

All the lawyers at the US Justice Department and Eric Holder are doing is punishing South Carolina because Gov. Haley spanked our man-child President like the spoiled rotten self-serving brat he is.

The truth shows how "stupidly", to use Obama's own word, the DOJ is acting against the SC Voter ID law. They claim that requiring a person to show an ID in order to vote is discriminating against blacks and minorities and therefore the law cannot be enforced under the Civil Rights Act of 1965.

However, in order to register to vote in South Carolina a person must submit, at the time of registering, a valid state issued ID.

Read that again, and let it sink in.

You cannot vote in South Carolina unless you supply a state issued ID when you register to vote, but requiring someone to show a state issued ID when you vote is discriminating against blacks and violates the Civil Right's Act of 1965.

You have to have an ID in order to register to vote. The law requires you to show the same ID when you vote to prove you are the person who showed an ID in order to register to vote so you can cast a ballot.

The only people the law, "will have a discriminatory effect," on are ineligible voters because it will keep them from voting.

Only in "Obama-Land" does that make sense.
