North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) signed one of the toughest voter ID laws in the country on Monday. (Perdue who?) Liberals are going berserk. The new law mandates the use of a government photo ID, cuts early voting from 17 days to 10, does away with pre-registration for 16 and 17 year olds, and eliminates same day registration, which is known to be a prime source of voter fraud.
The DOJ is weighing a challenge to the law. Democrats are singing the blues, playing the race card and telling the same lie that there is no proof of voter fraud. But there is proof. This does not include voter fraud committed after 2010. How about the findings by James O’Keefe? Voters got out of jury duty because they weren’t US citizens, but they voted. Multiple voting anyone? And what about the massive amount of voters who are over 110 years old? About 2600 of them. Obama won North Carolina by 14,000 votes in 2008. Voter fraud could have swung the election his way.
The law will also abolish paid voter registration drives and straight-party voting. I expect to see multiple lawsuits but unless they can find something other than the Voting Rights Act that the SCOTUS tossed out, they may find themselves in a bad position. Last year South Carolina was able to recover every penny they spent defending their voter ID law.
Of course, democrats are warning republicans that they are putting themselves in danger. Why? Are all those 110 year olds going to attack with their walkers?
