Unions require photo ID for elections; Democrats want no photo ID for state and national elections

13 Dec

Isn’t this picture great?  Union members are required to show a photo ID before being allowed to vote in elections like in the recent shakedown of Boeing.

We always hear how unfair and racist it is to ask that Americans show a photo ID before being allowed to vote in state and national elections.  Democrats have been outraged at any attempt to implement voter-ID laws across the country for years.  Attorney General Eric Holder is even giving a speech today in Texas supporting the rejection of voter-ID laws.  The NAACP is showing their strong opposition to voter-ID laws by taking the matter to the U.N. (for some reason) calling it “a tidal wave of assaults on the right to vote.”

From Newsbusters:

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) has given 99% of its campaign money to Democrats (according to ElectionLawCenter.com, citing OpenSecrets.org).

Yet the IAM in the instance photographed required a photo ID of all who wished to vote in a contract ratification election. From the looks of the professionally made sign, the photo-ID requirement in the union’s elections would appear to be far from an isolated instance. Gosh, I wonder why?

Doug Ross nails it:

In America, one needs an ID to vote in a union election, buy liquor, drive a car, board an airplane, use a credit card and a slew of other things in our society. Yet, the Democratic party refuses to back the idea of requiring an ID to vote in state and federal elections under any circumstances. A sensible voter ID law that respects the rights of the poor, elderly, and minorities is a great idea. What are Democrats afraid of? You connect the dots.

Is it possible for Democrats to be bigger hypocrites?
