The most prevalent argument by Democrats, The News & Observer, the N.C. NAACP, and leftists in general, against the Voter ID law that Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue just vetoed, is, “Where’s the fraud?”
Opponents see the law as a solution in search of a problem. Naively, they argue that no one would actually try to commit vote fraud, and they scoff at those who argue that requiring a voter ID at the polls and when requesting absentee ballots is a prudent requirement.
While NAACP President Benjamin Jealous lashed out at new state laws requiring photo ID for voting, an NAACP executive sits in prison, sentenced for carrying out a massive voter fraud scheme.
In a story ignored by the national media, in April a Tunica County, Miss., jury convicted NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers is identified on an NAACP website as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee.
Americans need photo IDs for hundreds of other activities in their daily lives. One has to wonder whether those opposing IDs for voting simply want to retain the opportunity for the Lessadolla Sowers of the world to do their thing.
