SURPRISE! Voter ID rules protect seniors, minorities

Since ‘livinrightinpgh‘ covered Voter ID  a few days ago, this article caught my eye. It is from The Daily Caller, so we’ll only take a piece of it, and direct you back there for the rest.

Here’s the start:

Criminal justice data shows that blacks and poor people are the most common victims of voter fraud and are the greatest beneficiaries of voter identification rules, according to a new study.

The courtroom evidence “completely contradicts the [progressive claim] that blacks, seniors, college students and other disadvantages groups are being victimized,” said Horace Cooper, an adjunct fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research.

“The truth is … [that] the criminals — more often than not — are Democrats violating the rights of people who tend to be black or senior,” he told The Daily Caller.

A large investigation in Virginia, for example, showed that 30 percent of fraud allegations were centered in Richmond, which has the highest percentage of African-Americans in the state. In the state a wide investigation of voter fraud produced criminal charges against 38 people.

Good voter identification procedures would reduce that fraudulent voting, and aid minorities most, Cooper said.

The new study damages progressives’ claims that the popular demand for voter identification laws mask a GOP effort to suppress the vote of racial and ethnic minorities who support Democratic candidates.

That claim has been central to a variety of Democratic efforts to block voter ID laws in critical swing-states, including Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Oh, the folks over in Eric Holder’s office will NOT be happy about this.

    Conservatives MUST stop exploiting the poor, disenfranchised, and minorities! After all, given that the Zero-In-Chief got over 90% of the African-American vote, they MUST be pretty lousy at pulling it off.

    Oh, wait….do you MEAN the Dems are doing this?
