In their research findings, the Pew Center for the States may have found the Obama administration’s true reason to void state voter identification laws.
According to their recent study, Upgrading Voter Registration, the Pew Center for the States reports the following data:
- 1.8 million dead people are listed as active voters
- Approximately 24 million or 1 in 8 active registrations are significantly inaccurate or invalid
- At least 54 million, 1 in 4, eligible voters are not registered.
Can you spell fraud?
The O-Team and their handmaidens in unions and community organizing groups like ACORN are just waiting for the chance to scam the electoral system and ensure their beloved leader’s re-election.
Far fetched? Not hardly. In his 2004 book, If It’s Not Close, They Can’t Cheat, Hugh Hewitt details how the standard operating procedure of the American Left has been to lie, cheat, and steal elections for more than two centuries.
The Pew Center for the States is working with various states to streamline and secure the voter registration process to limit the potential for abuse.
This is why U.S. Attorney General stopped the South Carolina Voter Identification law. He, and his boss in the White House, want to win at any cost, including massive voter fraud.
So, under the false cover of the 15th Amendment and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Holder has stopped implementation of common-sense requirements that voters produce valid picture identification before they vote.
The 15th Amendment to the Constitution, ratified February 3, 1870, states:
1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
2. The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
According to a Congressional Research Service report,
“Major provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965:
(1) Prohibit the enactment of any election law to deny or abridge voting rights on account of race or color;
(2) Suspend all literacy tests in states and counties that used them and where less than 50% of adults had voted in 1964;
(3) Prohibit the enforcement of new voting rules or practices until federal reviewers determine if their use would continue voting discrimination;
(4) Assign federal examiners to list qualified applicants to vote and to serve as poll watchers;
(5) Authorize the Attorney General to institute civil actions to seek enforcement of the act; and
(6) Prohibits any person acting under color of law or otherwise from intimidating or denying any eligible person from voting.”
Requiring voters to have a valid identification does not discriminate. If a person cannot afford to get government identification, most states offer free identification cards to low-income people.
By stopping implementation of the South Carolina law, it is clear that Holder’s motive is not to protect voters from discrimination, but to further the continuation of massive voter fraud.
South Carolina is fighting back. Last week South Carolina sued the federal government for blocking its voter ID law.
According to CBS News,
“The Palmetto state sued the Justice Department and Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday in Washington, D.C. federal court, seeking a declaratory judgment determining that the law does not violate civil rights.
“‘South Carolina’s photo identification law does not bar anyone from voting, but merely imposes on voters a responsibility to obtain an approved photo identification card and to bring it to the polls,’ the state’s complaint said.”
To control voting fraud, states must reorganize their registration systems and require voters to show proof of their identity and current address. In addition, the states must assert themselves and continue to challenge Holder and his fraudulent agenda.
