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.
