Voter Fraud- Left Defensive Posture

Let's take a look at Caroline Heldman frothing at the mouth excuses of how Voter ID’s would disenfranchise 11% of the population.

First the video:

Here we go.

“If you don’t have a car, why would you?”

All states, usually through the same agency that issues driver's licenses, (SOS, DMV) provide identification cards for people who do not drive. These typically resemble a driver's license and have the same security and identification features. They are commonly used by seniors (who are eligible for free cards in some states), students who choose not to drive, people who are unable to drive, and people in large cities with comprehensive public transportation networks. There is a valid ID that every person who wants to vote can show to election officials.

“Voter fraud is a non-existence problem:”

OK, voter fraud “conviction” are rare, but voter registration fraud is very rampant. And the reason why voter fraud convictions are rare is because by the time authorities try to question the person who registered to vote (and actually voted) they are long gone, moved on, to avoid being apprehend.

But let’s take a look at voter registration fraud. We’ll look in to the most extreme cases in the last 10 years or so.

-AR 1998 A contractor with ACORN-affiliated Project Vote was arrested for falsifying about 400 voter registration cards.
-CO 2004 An ACORN employee admitted to forging signatures and registering three of her friends to vote 40 times.
-FL 2009 In September, 11 ACORN workers were accused of forging voter registration applications in Miami-Dade County during the last election. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the state attorney’s office scoured hundreds of suspicious applications provided by ACORN and found 197 of 260 contained personal ID information that did not match any living person.
-IN 2008 Election officials in Indiana have thrown out more than 4,000 ACORN-submitted voter registrations after finding they had identical handwriting and included the names of many deceased Indianans.
-MI 2008 Clerks in Detroit found a "sizable number of duplicate and fraudulent [voter] applications" from the Michigan branch of ACORN.
-MO 2008 Nearly 400 ACORN-submitted registrations in Kansas City have been rejected due to duplication or fake information.
2003 Of 5,379 voter registration cards ACORN submitted in St. Louis, only 2,013 of those appeared to be valid. At least 1,000 are believed to be attempts to register voters illegally.
-MN 2004 During a traffic stop, police found more than 300 voter registration cards in the trunk of a former ACORN employee.
-NM 2008 Prosecutors were investigating more than 1,100 ACORN-submitted voter registration cards after a county clerk found them to be fraudulent. Many of the cards included duplicate names and slightly altered personal information.
2005 Four ACORN employees submitted as many as 3,000 potentially fraudulent signatures on the group’s Albuquerque ballot initiative. A local sheriff added: “It’s safe to say the forgery was widespread.”
-PA 2008 State election officials have thrown out 57,435 voter registrations, the majority of which were submitted by ACORN. The registrations were thrown out after officials found "clearly fraudulent" signatures, vacant lots listed as addresses, and other signs of fraud.
-TX 2008 In Harris County, nearly 10,000 ACORN-submitted registrations were found to be invalid, including many with clearly fraudulent addresses or other personal information.

NOW, by my count, that’s nearly 78,000 in just 10 states. More can be seen here.

“Another way is to provide your water or a utility bill (As an ID)

ANYONE can get a water bill. Millions of illegal aliens have their water bills under their name, because you do NOT have to show proof of anything, just tell the city your residence and have your name on the account.

Then she tries to minimize voter registration, after O'Reilly runs down a list he had put together, by saying “that’s one, one thousands of one percent”

Of course it wouldn't be a progressive point of view if they didn’t throw in the Koch Brothers in there, somewhere.

Point is, ONE illegal registration, ONE illegal vote IS VOTER FRAUD. The left’s head explodes when they hear States passing voter ID laws.

You know WHY? Because without it, they NEVER would win an election again… And they know it!

I like your list of instances of voter fraud. Kinda blows a hole in the libs' argument that there is no such thing in this country

O'Reilly even laid out several instances of it and it is outright dismissed.
I mean it's like talking to a brick wall. There is no coherent dialog when you present facts to libs, as they just blow right past what anyone presents to them.

How can a doctor be so stupid?
Oh yea, she has the dreaded mind eating, reason debilitating desease called...LIBERALISM!

The first symptom of liberalism is the lack of comprehending facts of what is being presented to them.
And sadly enough, I don't think it curable.
