Quote Of The Day

Said by Tre Hargett, Tennessee secretary of state:

“I think that nothing could disenfranchise an eligible voter more than finding out that ineligible voters are voting.”

This quote is taken from an NPR article on voter identification cited in a Hot Air article today.  In reporting on the drive for voter identification, NPR has pushed the Democrat Party line–“…minorities, students, the poor and disabled — those most likely to vote Democratic — will be hurt the most.”  I would just like to mention that if any of those minorities, students, or poor and disabled smoke, buy alcohol, or ever get on an airplane, they need a photo ID.  Certainly voting is as important as those activities.  Supporters of voter identification laws say the rules are needed to ensure honest elections.  After what we have seen with bogus voter registrations in some of our major states, I agree.
