Liberal groups and the Obama Justice Department consistently fight efforts by states to require voters to present photo identification at the polls. Their contention is that the poor, the elderly and minorities are least likely to have ID and are at the greatest risk of disenfranchisement.
Cherylyn Harley LeBon of the Project 21 Black Leadership Council says the facts are simple. She contends voter-identification laws have been upheld by the Supreme Court.
She also says the poor and elderly need ID to collect federal benefits and she claims participation among black voters in Georgia increased when ID was required to vote.
“The conspiracy theorist in me says this is how Democrats want to win elections,” LeBon told WND.
LeBon also offers her best guess as to why the Obama administration, the NAACP and others are very critical of voter ID laws.
