The Voter ID amendment is the only voter fraud in this country. Whether or not you believe in it, the constitution should NEVER be used to restrict rights or to pass laws that can’t get passed in congress. Shouldn’t the burden of proof be on the accuser? If so, SHOW ME all the thousands of cases of voter fraud that go on in the U.S. during every election. The only case I know of is when the Florida Supreme Court ended the recount and made George Bush president. It’s funny that the same people who claim voter fraud is a problem are the same people who had absolutely no problem in this case with voter fraud. The Voter ID policy wouldn’t protect our voting rights. It does not protect against fraud. It would only prevent someone from voting under another person’s identity, and there is NO, NO case of that ever happening! Open your eyes people! Think for yourselves! Just because a select group of people throws out a tidbit of fear and worry to rile the masses doesn’t mean it’s true. I served in the military and was ready and willing to defend my country. I’m ashamed to see that our own people would take away the constitutional right to vote away from others just to benefit themselves. Shameful!
Mr. Coleman, I read your opinion exchange today, I was surprised at your opinion about voter fraud. Here's what your lawyer said about voter fraud in the 2008 recount,"MAYBE IT'S THE LAW, MAYBE IT'S THE PEOPLE OF MINNESOTA. WE DON'T HAVE ELECTION FRAUD."
This whole process is nothing but "voter suppression" created by ALEC! Shame on you and all of the repubs. in the state congress and all over the nation! Disgusting!
I am a black American and we've had the vote for less than 5o yrs! That is a disgrace in it self! 450 yrs to get the vote and you and the repubs are putting another wall up. SICK!
Those who want to commit voter fraud also know how to make or get fake ID's. This amendment solves nothing.
