Skip to comments.If N.C.'s Voter ID Law 'Racist,' Why'd Obama Happily Comply With Illinois' ID Law?

Politics: Defying the Supreme Court, the administration is suing North Carolina for requiring valid ID at the polls, a rule that President Obama had no problem complying with in his home state.
North Carolina is the first state to make changes to its voting laws after June's Supreme Court ruling making it harder for the Justice Department to block such changes under the outdated Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Raleigh's new GOP majority passed a common-sense law making all voters show a state driver's license or other valid ID to guard against fraudulent ballots.
The law will help stop noncitizens from voting in a state with high illegal immigration. More than half the provisional ballots cast in the 2012 election were rejected because the people who voted did not have the legal right or residency to vote.
But race-obsessed Attorney General Eric Holder sees racism in the North Carolina law. "This law, we think, will have a disproportionate negative impact on minority voters," he claimed earlier this week.
So he has no idea whether it's intended to discriminate or will even have the effect of discriminating against minority voters. Still, he's suing to overturn it.
Good luck with that.

If voter ID laws are so impossibly difficult to comply with, why isn’t Obamacare considered impossibly difficult to comply with? And if you don’t sign up to vote, there is no penalty. But if you don’t sign up for Obamacare, there IS a penalty.
Black people too stupid to have IDs...Message received
The U.S. Post Office makes us cough up a photo ID to pick up our vacation-hold mail.
Racist post office
The position that Obummer/Holder has taken on this is really pathetic. There are many, many things a genuine ID is required for and the voting process for a US citizen should take precedence over them all.
It’s laughable that the two of them are against showing that ID to vote but it shows how racist they are because of the reason they use to file suits against it.
