Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., is hopping mad over Attorney General Eric Holders claim that GOP-backed voter identification laws violate the Voting Rights Act.
The fundamental goals and bipartisan legacy of the Voting Rights Act are imperiled by Attorney General Eric Holders Justice Department and the administration he serves, Sensenbrenner writes on Politico.
Holder has branded the voter ID laws a modern poll tax, notes the former chairman of the House Judiciary Committee who is now chairman of its Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security.
Holders legally undisciplined allegations, steeped in election-year politics, ignore the 24th Amendments prohibition on any taxes that deny or abridge a citizens right to vote, Sensenbrenner writes.

Our representatives need to go on the offense over this.
“Why is it that Holder and the democrats want to deny people the right to have their legitimate votes count without being cancelled out by fraud?”
Absolutely...This is clearly nothing but a move by Holder/Obama to enable voter fraud to continue for this election.
The majority of people have to realize this, it's a win for our Reps if they pursue it.
Real man of genius this guy. You allow a fraudulent administration to take power, they will use fraud to remain in power...
I'd like to smack 'em both right in the snout. The fargin bastidge iceholes.
Agree...You couldn’t be more correct.

You need photo identification to enter any school.
You need photo ID for any medical attention in a hospital.
You need photo ID for a state drivers license.
You need photo ID to cash a check and do banking.
You need photo ID get a book from the library.
You need photo ID for entrance into any political party event.
You need photo ID for transport either on airplane of overland highway transport for DHS (unless you are illegal immigrant).
You need photo ID for a passport.
You need photo ID for entrance into any State or Federal building or the WH.
That means that anyone who is educated, ever recived medical attention , drives a car, handles money, gets a book, is politically aware, travels , or visits any government agency already has photo id.
So .. that leaves out who ?
Aha !! .. I got it .. The previously deceased Democratic voters
Also includes many who voted Republican before they died.
I had to schedule a medical test and I was told I will need to bring a photo ID. Their argument is ridiculous.
