Shocker: President Obama Requires Photo ID To Attend Campaign Event
If you want to buy a book from First Lady Michelle Obama, you have to show photo ID. If you want to attend a campaign event with President Obama, you have to show photo ID.
If you want to vote for President Obama, no ID required. Because photo ID’s are racist or something.
CLEVELAND — President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign checked the identification of the supporters attending Obama’s “framing” event at Cuyahoga Community College today.
The 1,500 supporters in attendance picked up tickets at campaign offices in Northeast Ohio beginning on Monday, though tickets to the event made no mention of an ID requirement.
Jessica Kershaw, the Obama campaign’s Ohio Press Secretary, confirmed in a statement to BuzzFeed that the campaign checked every supporter’s identification at the door.
“We checked every ID at the door to make sure it matched with the name on the ticket that supporters filled out,” she said. “We did this for every person who came in.”
If it’s not racist to require a photo ID at a campaign event or a book-signing event, why is it racist to require a photo ID to vote?Tags: Barack Obama, michelle obama, photo id
