DOJ Witness Can Fly to Washington, But Canít Get Voter ID
PJ Media ^ | July 11, 2012 | J. Christian Adams

Posted on 07/12/2012 5:44:29 AM PDT by SumProVita

The Justice Department actually called a witness in the Texas Voter ID trial today in Washington, D.C. The witness complained she couldn’t find the time to get her parents to drive her to get the free photo ID, but she obviously had time to fly to Washington, D.C., from Texas to testify at trial!

How did she get to the airport?

I hope she was questioned by the State of Texas.

Another Sandra Fluke.

I assume if she wants a job or attend college she will have to prove that she is who she claims to be.

My wife and I were set to go on vacation, when upon arrival at the airport she realized she had left her wallet at home. We panicked, as time did not permit a return home w/o missing the flight. We spoke to the person at the counter, who asked us a few questions, had us fill out a form, then gave her a pass to go through security.

Even with allowance for occasions such as ours though, this 'testimony' reeks of politicalization and just plain BS.

He likely did not, he was hoping the readers would not notice it.

“Need ID for the hotel too”

I was asked for an ID at Best Buy to return a HDMI cable for a computer.
But not to vote???

Someone should compile a list of all the things we have to show an ID for; (but not to vote?)!

I approve of citizens voting if they are adults, but adults don't whimper helplessly until their parents take them where they want to go. Adults solve their own problems themselves. It's time for her to grow up and take responsibility for solving her own problems (once she collects her payment from the Democrats for delivering the scripted testimony that liberals wrote for her).

No kidding. I returned something very inexpensive to a grocery store— unopened. The store rep had the nerve to ask me for my ID. Ticked me off.

Good morning.

She has a birth cert and student ID.

In FL, if she is on the rolls, she can vote. If she isn't on the rolls, she gets a provisional ballot. Either way she can vote.

It's pretty simple. The only reason the democRATs don't want to show ID is to commit voter fraud.

This is how stupid the left thinks we all are.

That we wouldn't even think to question how she got on an airplane to get to DC.

I took it that you were referring to the AP article which was linked to in the Christian Adams article. My comment would apply to AP, not PJ Media.

The PJ Media author noted the irony but Henry C. Jackson, the author of the original AP story missed (or tried to hide) that fact.

Best Buy does it to catch people who are systematically shoplifting and returning items at different stores. Didn't like giving them an ID, but understand their reason.

Please explain how she was able to get on an airplane without a proper photo ID ...exactly the same kind of ID she would need to vote in Texas?

There is an interesting discussion in the comments section after page 2 of the article at pj. According to some there, you can fly without a photo ID. The author has some comments posted there.

The worst thing is, her testimony may lose the case for the Texas voter id law due to the structure of the case.

Jesse Jackson stated a while back that voter ID laws would reduce democrat “turnout” by 11%.

I don’t think it’s that high, but it would only take 2% to swing an election.

Read “How Evil Works” to understand why people prefer dishonest politicians to honest ones.

I thought you had to show an ID to get into the DOJ building. Maybe that is just AG Holder’s office.....still, how did she prove she was who she said she was?

“Unfortunately, a significant percentage of American voters are also stupid.”

Amen. The expansion of “democracy” throughout the 20th century has made the nation a prisoner of the stupid and dependent. American “popular culture” seems aimed at an IQ range of 80-95, because this represents the most easily manipulated band of consumers. The intelligent people hired to tell politicians what to do, understand mass marketing, and design campaigns and policy at this level, with obvious dolorous results. This trend will be difficult to reverse.
