Comments: Georgia Democrats oppose photo IDs for voting; cry 'racism' in their defense

It's those dead voters, they never look like their must be the weight loss.

The Democrats are so desperate to win elections, they're willing to object to basic, common sense requirements. The argument that not everyone drives is specious, due to the fact, that all states issue official ID's at very minimal costs. In a post 9/11 world, why would anyone not have a picture ID? It takes a picture ID to board a plane, buy cigarettes and alcohol, write a check, etc. etc.

I worked at our local election board during the 2000 campaign. We had numerous instances of fraudulent voter registration cards, with the names of dead people and empty lots used as mailing addresses. We literally recieved thousands of registrations and I'm positive not all of the fraudulent ones were spotted. Without a photo ID, what will stop unscrupulous people from voting numerous times with a fake name? In this past election, all around the country, examples were given where the number of new registrations surpassed the number of people eligible to vote in those particular counties.

The Democrats are always talking about "fair elections" and "let every vote count." They claim this is the only way minorities can be assured of the integrity of the voting system. Isn't the integrity of the voting system equally compromised when uncertainty arises in the legal eligiblity of those voting?
