The party of voter fraud strikes again. – Tea Party Nation

The efforts of the Obama regime to steal the 2012 election have kicked into full swing. Many states have passed laws to require ID to vote. Of course, the Obama regime needs voter fraud in order to win, so they are fighting voter ID laws tooth and nail.
From Fox News:
The Justice Department on Friday rejected South Carolina’s law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls, saying it makes it harder for minorities to cast ballots. It was the first voter ID law to be refused by the Obama administration.
Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez said South Carolina’s law didn’t meet the burden under the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which outlawed discriminatory practices preventing blacks from voting. Perez said tens of thousands of minorities in South Carolina might not be able to cast ballots under South Carolina’s law because they don’t have the right photo ID.
South Carolina’s new voter ID law requires people casting ballots to show poll workers a state-issued driver’s license or ID card; a U.S. military ID or a U.S. passport.
South Carolina is among five states that passed laws this year requiring some form of ID at the polls, while such laws were already on the books in Indiana and Georgia, whose law received approval from President George W. Bush’s Justice Department. Indiana’s law, passed in 2005, was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2008.
Those new laws also allow voters without the required photo ID to cast provisional ballots, but the voters must return to a specific location with that ID within a certain time limit for their ballots to count.
You cannot board an airplane, open a bank account, receive government benefits, even enter some government building, or buy alcohol without a proper ID.
Funny, the Obama regime and the party of voter fraud does not have a problem with any of those issues. It is only when the party of voter fraud needs to steal elections is this idea that ID is required becomes suddenly onerous.
If the Obama regime thinks it is discriminatory for people to be required to show ID’s to vote, how about we all go to the airport and claim discrimination when the TSA wants to see an ID before boarding an airplane.
