Democrats Refuse to Address Voter Fraud
by Lynn Woolley
If the Democratic Party is looking for a slogan for the 2008 election cycle, how about this one: vote early and often. It would be a perfect fit since Democrats seem to have no desire whatsoever to address the issue of voter fraud.
Take the situation at the Texas statehouse where Senate Republicans tried to pass a bill that would require a photo ID to vote. The idea was to make sure, in these days of rampant identity theft, that the person casting the vote is eligible to do so. Makes sense, right? Apparently not to Democrats.
They immediately called in Sen. Carlos Uresti of San Antonio, whod been out with the flu, and exposed everyone in the Senate chamber to whatever bug he was carrying. They had to do it. Without Urestis vote, the bill might have gotten past the two-thirds vote needed for consideration.
Another Democratic senator, Leticia Van de Putte, is concerned that she may not be able to go to the bathroom. Shes afraid that is she leaves the Senate floor, one of the Republicans may try to bring the bill up again.
Obviously, this photo ID bill is a big deal to Democrats. To understand why, you simply have to look at which party is on the losing side of voter fraud, and which party stands to gain.
