But the cost isn’t the real issue. The only people disenfranchised by voter ID requirements are those who cannot obtain a voter ID – namely, illegal immigrants, felons, and others who should not be voting. And these are precisely the sorts of folks that Democrats love to register. In 2008, a full one-third of voters registered by ACORN and their affiliate, Project Vote, were fraudulent. Voter fraud has tainted presidential primaries in Iowa and Texas; Hillary Clinton supporters asserted, with significant evidence, that the Obama campaign regularly utilized fraudulent voting to impact results. Hans von Spakovsky at National Review points out that in Indiana in 2008, four Democrats were charged with conspiracy, forgery, and official misconduct in an attempt to get Barack Obama listed on the ballot. Obama barely made it.
When it came to the New Black Panthers intimidating voters in Philadelphia, Holder and Co. looked the other way. But when it comes to states enforcing the law, the Justice Department jumps in with both feet.
Do Democrats mean to steal the election of 2012? The numbers would have to be astonishing large to do that – one vote isn’t going to make a difference. But the problem that O’Keefe exposed was this: there are no consequences for voter fraud..
The American people are losing faith in the electoral process – especially when voter registration drives are run by lobbying groups with a very specific agenda. The leading voter registration drives largely spring from the bowels of the SEIU or the American Federation of Teachers. The unions are interested in registering voters – but they’re only interested in registering a particular kind of voter. That’s their prerogative. And it’s our prerogative to ensure that every American who votes isn’t cancelled out by someone voting illegally.
