Voter ID video

If I had a couple million dollars to spare, I'd blanket the state airways with this video:

I don't know who made it, but it's brilliant. Share and enjoy.

UPDATE: Just so there's no confusion, I didn't create this. And the two speakers are Reps. Dwayne Bohac and Debbie Riddle, as noted before.

UPDATE: BOR has more.

Perhaps the leadership of MoveOn, PFAW, and Common Cause are still offering their support for Holt's flawed bill, despite their membership's preferences, because they are waiting for the Senate to act first:

Feinstein Asks for All EAC Communications Processes concerning Voter Fraud

Today Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) sent a letter to Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, which has oversight over the EAC, "expressing his concern over the revelations and asking her to examine the process by which the EAC report was produced. Menendez maintains that the use of the EAC to advance a political agenda is a blow to the integrity of the electoral system and that an investigation into the motivations behind the panel's report is warranted."


LATE UPDATE: Feinstein sends letter of inquiry on these matters to EAC, demanding all communications and processes leading to the alteration and/or hiding of both the EAC's "Voter Fraud" report and the report showing that Voter ID laws depress voter turnout.

But, Congress needs to hear from us, perhaps first, and Now:

From Election Defense Alliance: ACTION Needed NOW:

Halt Holt's HR 811

Prior to Spring recess, the HCA was trying to "fast track" H.R. 811.
An unprecedented outpouring of citizen protest stopped them in their tracks.

Keep FAXING and pouring it on until Congress gets the message:

(Keep the unitary executive OUT of elections)

(The Holt bill supports them)

(Currently 85+% of our votes are counted in secret, with no citizen oversight)

It's a little misleading, don't you think? Bohac's err on the side of civil liberties quote was not about this bill.

No, I don't think so. I think the intent - to contrast what these two Voter ID bill authors are saying on other topics to their actions in supporting a Voter ID bill - is clear. In each case, it did identify the bill they were speaking about at the timr, so there should be no confusion there. Saying "why won't they say the same thing next week" implies there's a difference between what they were talking about at the timr and what they'll say next week. That's how I see it.
