Indiana Voter IDs: They're Blocking NUNS!


www.dailykos.com

About 12 Indiana nuns were turned away Tuesday from a polling place by a fellow bride of Christ because they didn't have state or federal identification bearing a photograph.

Sister Julie McGuire said she was forced to turn away her fellow sisters at Saint Mary's Convent in South Bend, across the street from the University of Notre Dame, because they had been told earlier that they would need such an ID to vote.

The nuns, all in their 80s or 90s, didn't get one but came to the precinct anyway.

Would a nun of all people lie? Because voter fraud is so rampant things like this happens. Would they be eligible for a absentee ballot?

In yet another brave victory for the idiots that for whatever reason, we have voted into office, we know have the Voter Integrity act. This would stop all of the voter fraud that doesn’t happen, while still allowing re-tabulated counts to render the population at large superfluous in any election. While the Voter Integrity act has many detractors, these are the same people that said that invading Iraq was a mistake, so clearly they should be ignored.

Indiana Voter I.D. laws are the strictest in the country, and by strictest I mean the most idiotic. Others were turned away because they had recently been married, and so their names didn’t match their I.D.s, and others who simply had outdated I.D.’s.

The ACLU filed a suit, stating that such a law would dispraportionately affect minorities and the elderly, but the Supreme Court voted 6-3 saying that nothing in the new law was unconstitutional. Of course the constitution also originally counts African-Americans as 3/5ths of a person, so maybe they were simply trying to be strict adherents to the early Constitution, which wouldn’t surprise me in the least. And how in the hell did they ever come up with 3/5ths? Oh well, “angels on the . of a pin” reasoning, I suppose.

But the most interesting part of such legislation is not merely that it disenfranchises elderly and minority voters (like say, Florida in 2000). No, what is far more interesting is how no one seems to be passing strict laws, or even rules, regarding how the votes are being collected and counted. Because lets face it, if you are going to commit voter fraud, a few morons may try and do it by sneaking in and voting when they shouldn’t be, but that is child’s play when you consider how many votes can be manipulated by simply changing a few numbers on a computer.

CNN reporting now. That the nuns HAD ID but they were "outdated". They say also this problem is happening with college students. They need a government issued ID.

Got to have an ID to vote man....

Make an exception for an American Nun, have to make one for a Mexican Nun as well...



I don't see anything wrong with this, if your going to vote bring a valid ID, not a big deal.

First allow me to say that the second quoted external source item is possibly the most spelling and grammar error filled "news" item I've ever seen. This is just one more reason why a blog isn't a valid news item. If the author doesn't have the pride and care in his work to take 30 seconds to run spell check (which at the very least would have informed him he misspelled "proportionately") then why should we give him or her even a small benefit of the doubt where actual fact checking of the piece is concerned?

Second, as for requiring voter ID... I don't get what the big problem is here. Aside from preventing unregistered people from voting, it also prevents shenanigans like the one in Chicago years ago when the dead rose from their graves and voted Democrat across the board. Besides, if we're gonna have separation of church and state rammed down our throats over every tiny attempt by believers at incorporating just a little old time religion back into the system, then it should be jammed right back down their throats when the same idiots try to use "but they're NUNS!" to garner a purely emotional reaction of outrage over some percieved disenfranchised voter scenario. Two mules? No Sister Sarah, you only need one ID... now please go and get one so you can participate in the election process fairly like the rest of us who actually followed the rules and paid attention.
