As CitizenLink reported, board spokeswoman Alysoun McLaughlin carefully spun her political rebuttal. She said: "We're very concerned about any kind of activity that occurs in a polling place where someone is misrepresenting themselves or otherwise obstructing what occurs at a polling place. Our concern is with the tactics that this individual is employing. If you walk into a polling place on Election Day to register to vote for the first time, then you need to provide proof that you are a resident of a district. But if you are a registered voter, if you've been on the rolls, we do not require ID of those individuals. That's the law. We leave it to the policymakers to determine what those laws should be."
There's no shock or surprise that Holder and his DOJ cronies similarly pitched their response about the Project Veritas expose by saying, "It's no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones."
But the truth is -- as Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Institute, summarized -- "They don't want to do anything about the vulnerabilities in the system. That means they really don't want elections that are secure and have integrity. It's highly dangerous that the attorney general has that view toward safe and secure elections."
Before the people at the DOJ arraign Project Veritas, they might want to recall that recently deceased news watchdog Mike Wallace often used undercover video on "60 Minutes" to expose fraud in Medicare claims and other consumer goods.
By the way, Project Veritas' recent D.C. polling revelation is its fourth uncovering of voter fraud nationally. Previous locations have included Minnesota, New Hampshire and Vermont, where O'Keefe obtained election ballots by using other celebrity names, such as Tom Brady and Tim Tebow, and even some of the 1.8 million people who are deceased but still registered voters. Texas had better beware, because "Chuck Norris" could be next for Project Veritas.
Actually, in March, the DOJ's civil rights division filed legal action against Texas' new photo ID requirement for voters, stating that it restricts some Hispanic voters, as they often lack official identification.
To assist Holder and Obama, NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous recently petitioned the United Nations Human Rights Council -- which, of course, has no jurisdiction over American law (though Jealous might not recognize that) -- that the tougher Texas voter ID law is unfair and discriminatory.
In 2003, the first voter ID laws were passed, and as of September 2011, 30 U.S. states required some form of ID in order for citizens to cast their votes.
State polls have shown that as many as 80 percent of voters, including majorities of Hispanics and African-Americans, agree that voter ID laws are good and necessary. And let's not forget the 2008 U.S. Supreme Court's 6-3 decision, authored by Justice John Paul Stevens, that upheld Indiana's strict ID requirement.
Voting is a right and privilege of citizens in this country and should be protected at all costs. By opposing voter ID laws, however, the Obama administration is actually dismantling the integrity of elections by enabling voter fraud.
Having tried all we can to stop the administration's anti-constitutional usurpations, we are left alone to take the path recommended by Founding Father James Madison, who admonished us patriots in 1788, "In the last resort a remedy must be obtained from the people who can, by the elections of more faithful representatives, annul the acts of the usurpers."
Speaking of restoring our republic, I encourage everyone to see Kirk Cameron's new and inspiring patriotic movie, "Monumental," which opened this past weekend in select theaters across the country. My family saw it, and every family who loves this country should see it, too. You can watch a trailer of the movie or find a theater location where it's playing by going to http://www.MonumentalMovie.com.
