Massachusetts Democrats To Require Voter ID At Their State Convention
And here you thought voter ID laws were racist.
In recent years, Democrats have argued that requiring voters to show photo IDs prior to voting is an egregious act of voter suppression. Ben Jealous, of the NAACP, has gone so far as to argue that such requirements are tantamount to modern-day Jim Crow laws. In the world they inhabit, lots of voters don’t have access to photo IDs, so requiring voters to provide this will “disenfranchise” them and leave them out of the democratic process. Funny they don’t feel that way for their own party conventions.
On Saturday, Massachusetts delegates will meet in their state’s Democrat party convention. The votes of these delegates will determine whether there are primary elections for their party nominations. With so much at state, Democrats have decided to implement Voter ID requirements
I guess they want to ensure that the ballot box used to select their candidates is secure from fraud.
If only Democrats felt that way about ballot boxes in general. Democrats are only against vote fraud when it doesn’t benefit them, it seems.Tags: Asshats, democrats, voter id
