Phoenix - Gov. Janet Napolitano on Thursday used an appearance before a largely Hispanic audience to veto a bill to require Arizona voters to show identification to cast regular ballots at polling places.

Republican supporters of the bill said it would prevent voter fraud, but Napolitano told the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials that it would deter voter participation.

The RATS depend on confused, marginal and phony voters. This Napolitano flipping sucks. There is no honor left in the 'cRAT party. Only a gnawing hunger for power. These jackasses are always failures in the private sector so they crave public sector power. Will do whatever it takes to seize it.

Yep, "seize" just like the commies of old in Russia and elsewhere.

"In Arizona, we want people to vote," said Napolitano.

... and it helps if they are illegal voters, she may as well have added.

In fact, most illegals vote solidly for Democrats. They give them the most "free" things.

Arizonians have sown the wind and will reap the whirlwind - along with the rest of us deluded saps who still consider ourselves honest citizens!

I can't vote because I was caught with some marijuana as a stupid kid, but illegal aliens can vote.

Something is wrong here.

The legal citizens of Arizona better get a handle on this before they are a minority at the voting booth and the illegals make the legals illegal.

They better do it soon.

but Napolitano told the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials that it would deter voter participation.

Right, sister. That's why banks, video stores, liquor stores, and any establishment that requires ID when you use your credit card are soooooooo hurting for business cuz all that ID checking 'deters participation'.

Does showing an ID when you use a credit card deter using a credit card? NO, it deters criminal acts!

Does showing an ID to get a library card deter use of libraries? NO, it deters criminal acts! Does showing an ID when you board an airplane deter flying? NO, it deters criminal acts!

Get the message???? That's why we want ID's shown when you vote!

"...but Napolitano told the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials that it would deter voter participation bar illegal aliens from voting."

"In Arizona, we want people illegals to vote"

Another victory of the enemy against the republic.

Wait just a darn moment there. Republicans are far more religious (honestly), do far more for the poor than the Dems ever dreamed, and truly care about the down and out. I simply refuse to believe Christ could ever consider himself to be a Dem on any level.

Such a law would limit the ability of illegal aliens to vote once, much less, multiple times, thereby, limiting their income producing opportunities. And, at least conceptually, reduce the taxes paid (if they paid taxes) on these large amounts of added income.

Same as usual. Nothing to see here, folks, just Demoncraps in action. Move along.

This is why we do most of our real legislating by ballot initiative these days. Several years ago, Arizona became the first state to pass a ballot initiative that prevents the Legislature from overriding other ballot initiatives.

Not that I am aware of. Ol' Napolitano is more Mexican than she is American..... she's a disgusting slug who ought to be recalled before Arizona winds up in the same sinking boat that Davis put California in... by killing proposition 187 (the initiative that would have eliminated all the freebies that go to the millions of illegal alien leeches in the state). California is about to come unglued, and so will Arizona under the bad leadership of the truck-driving hussy.

I am against federal regulations, to a fault, but in this case, I would strongly support a federal minimum ID to vote. I am sick of illegal aliens voting.

I don't understand. Can a state compel an individual to obtain a state-issued ID for purposes of voting in an election? This thread is hung up on the fact that she's a dem and wants pandered votes, so what else is new.

Unless, perhaps AZ is different, and we here in CA live more free than you folks. You can't get an ID in this state without a signature, and a signature can't be compelled. Perhaps the world has gone completely nuts and I should just give up.

Hmm. As I note in post #45, one must sign off on the voter registration rolls here in AZ before being given a ballot. Same was true in Wisconsin when I lived and voted there. Don't you have to sign in at the polling place so they have a record that you voted?

Don't forget, the dems did the first ever online voting right here in AZ. It was during the democratic primary in the 2000 election.

I pointed out then to my liberal friend that online voting seemed to me ripe for tampering. Naturally this idea was not repellant to her.

If they require valid U.S. identification the DummieCrats know that they can't get elected, hence . . . . . the big veto from Janet Reno's sister!

Here's hoping that the Arizona House and Senate vote to override her veto.

Bingo! While she vehemntly opposes voter ID, Butch is intensely lobbying the AZ General Assembly to pass a bill to allow "undocumented residents" to obtain driver licenses without showing any proof of US citizenship. She says it shall make the roads safer for the children. Butch is such a lying witch.
