Another atrocious anti-voter ID ruling

CLEVELAND — Another day, another terrible court ruling undermining honest elections.

The ruling from the Fifth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals struck down part of a common sense voter ID law in Texas.

This is especially worrisome because the Left is gearing up to go all out to put Hillary Clinton in the White House in November. A bad ruling weakening electoral integrity only emboldens left-wing fraudsters nationwide.

ACORN successor groups across America are conducting voter registration fraud drives in neighborhoods near you. For example, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) is registering voters in the San Francisco area. No good can come of this.

In this case the appeals court ordered a lower court to change parts of the 2011 Texas law to remove its “discriminatory effect.” Discriminatory effect is judicial supremacist speak for asking voters to take 30 seconds at the polls to prove they are eligible voters.

The ruling from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals instructs a lower court to make changes that fix the “discriminatory effect” of the 2011 law.

The Obama administration intervened in the case because it felt the state law was unfair because it made Texas residents produce one of seven forms of approved identification. These judges agreed, ruling that low-income minority voters are too stupid to obtain such ID.

The Texas Democratic Party was overjoyed because the ruling opens the floodgates to voter fraud. It called the statute “the most restrictive and discriminatory Republican voter ID law” in America.
