Obama blocks Texas’ attempt to hinder Democrats access to the ballot box

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT  — That is all this so-called “voter fraud prevention” law does and the Justice Department agreed. The new Texas law to require photo ID at the polls was blocked by the Obama Administration stating it would disenfranchise Hispanic, poor and disabled voters — all people who tend to vote Democratic. They also cited little evidence of voter fraud justifying the new law.

The Voting Rights Act of 1965 allows the federal government to intervene when states attempt to restrict access to the ballot box.

ACLU’s Katie O’Connor “Texas’ voter ID law would prevent countless Latinos, African-Americans, elderly citizens and others from casting their ballot. We’re pleased the Department of Justice has recognized the harms this discriminatory law would have on people’s fundamental right to vote.”

Texas Gov. Rick Perry: “yet another example of the Obama administration’s continuing and pervasive federal overreach.”

A number of states have enacted laws to restrict mostly Democrat access to the ballot box under the disguise of  “voter fraud prevention”.  Obama has already reversed a similar law in South Carolina.

Let’s be clear about this folks — there is no problem with voter fraud, laws like these are just attempt to dissuade Democrats from voting. Besides, the last high-profile voter-fraud case was a Republican Secretary of State – Charlie White. The law enacted in Texas would have not prevented that kind of voter fraud.
