Skip to comments.Seven Secretaries of State Criticize Michelle Obama for Claiming GOP Voter Suppression in 2012

Seven Secretaries of State have released a statement criticizing First Lady Michelle Obama for her false claim that Republicans engaged in voter suppression in the November election:
Unfortunately the First Ladys comments continue the baseless attacks that have been made upon those leaders who are simply taking reasonable steps to protect the security and integrity of elections. This past election speaks for itself.
In Arizona, a state that has a photo ID requirement, Hispanic voter turnout was the highest in the states history. In Georgia, African American turnout has remained high in each election after the state adopted its photo ID requirement in 2006. In Kansas, another state with a photo ID requirement, a minuscule .07 percent of voters neglected to bring their IDs to the polls and all were given provisional ballots and opportunity to provide photo identification later.
These examples reflect what is happening in every state that is taking steps to protect the integrity of elections. No voter is impeded from voting. And more voters become engaged in their elections because they have greater confidence their votes will be counted accurately and not cancelled out by illegal votes.
That is why Americans overwhelmingly favor photo ID and other election security measures.

You mean they came all the way from Africa to vote???? When will this political babying of blacks ever end?
“GOP voter suppression in 2012?” ROTFL! It sounds like somebody might be hittin’ da “happy smoke”. What a clown she is.
I personally believe evidence of massive vote fraud by democrats in Michigan is what is diving our legislature to the hard right.
Rather than spending years in court for half measure solutions, they’re digging them out by the roots.
Voter suppression = Truth
“You mean they came all the way from Africa to vote???..... When will this political babying of blacks ever end?.....
NEVER....Told a friend just yesterday she was using the Alinsky tactic.....They know there was MASSIVE FRAUD (on their side) so they accuse the other side to disarm the accusation....First time in my life I felt the need for a weapon, and I feel better having one.....With plenty of ammo......I’m actually warning family to store food and arm themselves.....
She’s a LIAR hust like her pos, poseur, Creep-In-Chief husband. No surprises here.
She’s just jealous because The Un, Castro, and Chavez get 99% of the vote when their elections happen. Anything less is voter suppression.
Ms. Obama is not part of nor ever learned of America’s greatness....she only understands the politics of the gutter a-la Debbie Wassermann-Schultz...Ms. Obama like her husband, does not represent most Americans, she is a racist at heart with a huge chip on her over emphasized shoulders.
Michelle is trying to pre-empt exposure of the massive voter fraud that put her hubby back in office. She knows it’s there and is fearful of its revelation.
Moochell had best watch her step. She may replace Hillary as the ‘smartest woman in the world.’
There is a tremendous amount of voter fraud going on, both with manipulating machines and with illegal voting, and the way the left deflects scrutiny of that is by accusing states that try to run honest elections of suppressing the vote. Send out Imelda Michelle to lecture us.
Moochy was just following the liberal deny and blame your opponent ploy for the illegal deeds committed by their own side. Slick Clinton and his hag perfected this ploy to divert attention from their own criminal acts. Unfortunately, it worked for them but this current bunch in the WH doesn’t realize that in order to demonstrate any degree of credibility they must tell the truth sometimes. They haven’t so now only a fool would believe anything either of them says. The obozo and the Moochy have been laid bare as criminal frauds.
