SENATORS FOR VOTE FRAUD
October 19, 2002 -- IT'S more than a little ironic. On the same day it was announced that Saddam Hussein has been "unanimously" re-elected, the only two senators preventing a unanimous vote in the Senate on the election-reform bill were New York's own Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton.
Why? "This would make it more difficult to vote in New York. It's designed to suppress minority voting participation," said Sen. Clinton.
The "this" Sen. Clinton is referring to is the new anti-fraud provisions in the bill. They require that every person wanting to vote show a driver's license, Social Security number or other approved ID in order to cast a ballot.
Clinton and Schumer preferred a system where a potential voter merely had to sign his or her name.
So who is it exactly that this bill is "suppressing"? U.S. citizens have all the requisite ID - no matter what their ethnicity. Could it be that Clinton and Schumer are "sensitive" to some of the leftist fringe groups in this country who are clamoring for the right of illegal aliens to vote?
It is no secret that New York is home to thousands of undocumented "residents" - who would vote overwhelmingly Democratic if they could just get past these darn ID requirements.
New York's dynamic duo have a lot more 'splainin' to do on this one.
I particularly like the "Utter Failure"........just right for billboards across America!
