Liberals love projecting their own sins and crimes onto conservatives.
A perfect example is “voter fraud.” The Democrats are obsessed with the idea that Republicans are engaged in it, even though it is far more likely to happen in Democratic-run places like Chicago.
This year, Americans have witnesses many examples of the Democrats getting up to their old tricks: Fighting for the “right” of convicted felons to vote, and whining about “unfair” voter ID laws. On Friday, a court decision has once again sided with liberals on the latter issue.
According to the Washington Post:
A federal appeals court on Friday struck down North Carolina’s requirement that voters show identification before casting ballots and reinstated an additional week of early voting.
The decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit was an overwhelming victory for civil rights groups and the Justice Department that argued the voting law was designed to dampen the growing political clout of African American voters, who participated in record numbers in elections in 2008 and 2012.
Lawyers representing the state pointed out that overall African American participation increased in 2014. Lawmakers also amended the measure a week before it was scheduled to be tested at trial to allow voters to cast ballots without an ID if they submit affidavits attesting to “a reasonable impediment,” including a lack of a birth certificate or transportation.
So: Facts (like those 2014 statistics) don’t matter.
And how is someone who lacks the “transportation” allegedly required to apply for a valid ID somehow able to access the “transportation” required to get hold of one of those “affidavits”?
Apparently the elites in charge of determining these things don’t bother themselves with such silly questions.
