Will Attorney General Eric Holder change his mind about voter id laws?
In a shocking new video, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas demonstrates to the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, just why he should be concerned about lack of voter ID laws – by walking into Holder’s voting precinct and showing the world that anyone can obtain Eric Holder’s ballot. Literally.
The video shows a young man entering a Washington, DC polling place at 3401 Nebraska Avenue, NW, on primary day of this year – April 3, 2012 – and giving Holder’s name and address. The poll worker promptly offers the young man Holder’s ballot to vote.
Holder has maintained that voter fraud is not a major problem in the United States, and that voter ID would not curb voter fraud in any case.
Project Veritas has already shown how dead people can vote in New Hampshire, prompting the state senate to pass a voter ID law; they’ve shown celebrities like Tim Tebow and Tom Brady registering to vote in Minnesota, prompting the state legislature to put voter ID on the ballot as a constitutional amendment. Washington DC voting law is a federal jurisdictional area. Will the federal government take up the challenge?

No, liberals like Holder know that they only way they can win is by voter fraud.
If ID's are required then the illegal vote is gone. Republicans would win every election from now on.

Voting is a right, not a privilege. Owning a car, getting a drivers license and others are not guaranteed by the US Constitution like voting is. There are better ways than requiring a state picture ID to ensure the person is who they say they are without going through the troubles to get one. Some states like Florida make it difficult to get a state ID if you don't already have one.
I would first like to say, how many people are so committed to voting for anyone that they would risk committing a Felony and going to prison for at least a year. That said I am also concerned that someone could walk up and say they are me and without some sort of identification could vote for me, but like I said, there are other things that can be used. Also how do you account for someone who is homeless and may not have the ability to get an ID because they don't have a home address but wants to exercise their Constitutional right to vote?
Almost everyone gets a pay stub, gov't check or something that has their home address. Combine that with something else that corroborate like a utility bill that has the person's name and address. Then you don't need a picture ID. Or perhaps setup a camera to take a pic with the person's name when they come in to vote. Then you have visual evidence of someone who voted in case it turns out not to be the right person.
There are many ways to ensure the right person votes without requiring a state picture ID. But it is much easier to pass a law like this that will exclude millions of elderly and poor from being able to exercise their Constitutional right, isn't it.

Realistic girl... you're argument, like many liberal arguments, is completely made up and totally false. Nobody would be forcing you to buy an ID. You don't have to vote, just like you don't have to buy a car. Try coming up with real arguments next time instead of claiming we have a war on caterpillars or something
Jonathon... Owning a gun is a right too, protected under the Constitution. Are you saying we shouldn't force people to show an ID to buy a gun too?

The only person who commits voter fraud this way is James O’Keefe.
Ballots have no monetary value. Nobody wastes their time looking up peoples' addresses and voting in their place. If they did we would know because people would get turned away from the polls because somebody voted in their place. It doesn't happen.
Republican argument: We should enact voter ID laws to prevent James O'keefe from committing voter fraud.

He will change his mind when Obama and his controllers tell him to do so. A puppet.

It would be the right thing to do. It absolutely will keep folks from voting
for someone else, for voting for someone who's moved out of the state,
for voting for someone who died and is in the grave, and for voting more
than once. There will still be some that slip through the cracks, but the
voting statistics will be more actual and correct in the end results. It
does not discriminate against anyone, rich, poor, or race. Just show your
drivers license or free ID, and vote. Fair for everyone. If the Attorney
General does not change his mind about this simple law, then he needs
to be replaced.

Nope, because he and his boss and the rest of his party can't allow people to be required to use photo id's. After all, the dead don't have id's anymore. And the illegals shouldn't be able to get them, and you can't precinct hop if you have id.
