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 couldnt 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!

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.
I have to show photo ID to board a plane. How did she manage to fly without one?
Dang, beat me to it!!
good post and good point. How did the author miss your point.?
Read the article. She has a birth cert and student ID.
Need ID for the hotel too
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.
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?)!
Let me point out that I also had to provide picture ID both at IAH and Boston Logan to board planes. What the heck???
The DOJ actions shows how important voter fraud is to the dems. Its got them scrambling.
Damnit! There you go again trying to confuse this issue with facts!
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.
He likely did not, he was hoping the readers would not notice it.
Hard to believe, pj media is a conservative web site making a conservative point.
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.
Ahhhh, but you are speaking common sense...something liberals have lost.
“It’s the first effect of not believing in God that you lose your common sense.” ...GK Chesterton
I was thinking the same thing....hmmmmmmm, something doesn’t smell right.
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.
This is how stupid the left thinks we all are.
They think we are stupid....because THEY are stupid.
Unfortunately, a significant percentage of American voters are also stupid.
I see your point, but no, how did Adams miss SumProVita's point ?
Still, its great to see the dems squeal like pigs-
“Read the article. She has a birth cert and student ID.”
Isn’t the student id a photo id?
How did she get a ticket?
Did they fly her in on AF1?................
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.
“The DOJ actions shows how important voter fraud is to the dems. Its got them scrambling.”
You nailed it. It couldn’t be more obvious.
Nothing the DEMS do makes any sense. They still have big support by all the idiots in America.
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?
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.

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?
Probably on one of the DOJ’s corporate Gulf Streams.
But no doubt this whole deal is loaded with BS.
“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.
The only reason the democRATs don’t want to show ID is to commit voter fraud.
Indeed they use more props than Hollywood.
This trend will be difficult to reverse.
Indeed! AND...it will take hard work and a good bit of time.
how do you get into a federal courthouse without showing valid ID ?
