Update: James O’Keefe strikes again—dead people allowed to vote in Vermont, here.
I know it’s all over the news and I don’t really need to post it, but I want to keep our Thomas Perez archives up-to-date so readers can easily find all the things that ‘Maryland’s gift to the Obama Administration’ has done for the nation. Longtime readers know that two prominent Maryland REPUBLICANS endorsed him for the job.
From the Washington Post:
The Obama administration on Monday blocked a new law in Texas that requires voters to show a photo ID, drawing fierce criticism from Republicans who say the move was aimed at boosting President Obama’s reelection prospects.
The Justice Department said that the law disproportionately harms Hispanic voters.
“Even using the data most favorable to the state, Hispanics disproportionately lack either a driver’s license or a personal identification card,” Thomas Perez, head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, wrote in a letter to Keith Ingram, director of elections for the Texas secretary of state.
So why don’t large numbers of “Hispanics” have driver’s licenses or ID cards? Because most who do not have identification are here illegally and therefore not entitled to vote.
