One of the greatest concern for conservatives in the upcoming election is that of voter fraud. And to alleviate that fear, many states have crafted and passed voter ID laws. These laws, in their various forms, require a photo identification for a person to be able to vote. This would be one more safeguard against one side stealing the race from the other. But this is not how some see the law.
From the beginning, many have claimed that this had racial motives. The argument is simple enough. The states that are seeking to enact these laws are Republican-led Legislatures, and they are trying to dampen the black vote. Now, appeals courts are saying the same thing.
The Washington Post reports:
Voting rights activists scored legal victories in key presidential election states Friday, the most important being a federal appeals court ruling that North Carolina’s Republican-led legislature enacted new voting restrictions in 2013 to intentionally blunt the growing clout of African American voters.
The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit was an overwhelming victory for the Justice Department and civil rights groups. Election law experts consider North Carolina’s voter law one of the nation’s most far-reaching.
Besides the fact that this was reported in a left-leaning manner, we have to ask several questions. Why can black voters not receive a state-issued IDs? Why can they not vote on the days of the election, instead of early?
The court ruled that these voter restrictions eliminated elements used “disproportionately” by NC blacks, but this did not in any way dissuade black voters from using the other ways of voting. It did not stop them from receiving state-issued ID cards.
And this should make all the other states with voter laws concerned. As I reported, there is proof that there has been voter fraud, and a video shows that attempts are being made by groups to commit even greater fraud through computer vote counters.
Watch the testimony of a programmer that proves this fraud is ongoing.
