While states across the nation are looking for ways to combat rampant reports of voter fraud, North Carolina decided to implement some commonsense regulations requiring individuals to present identification prior to casting a ballot.
Included in the new law is a reduction in the allotted period of early voting to 10 days and the elimination of same-day voter registration.
Although the requirements apply to all North Carolinians equally, a number of race-obsessed activists – including Attorney General Eric Holder – contend that the law is somehow discriminatory.
“The state legislature took extremely aggressive steps to curtail the voting rights of African-Americans,” Holder said late last year.
His comments came as he announced the Justice Department’s latest lawsuit against a U.S. state.
“This is an intentional step to break a system that was working,” he alleged; “and it defies common sense.”
This administration, it seems, not only believes a system that allows – if not encourages – fraud is perfectly functional, but cannot fathom why a state would be interested in combating such misbehavior.
