VOTER SUPPRESSION AGAINST BLACKS :( – Prejudice must be stopped!
I'm all for photo-ID requirements, but this is above-and-beyond what is common sense. The government should make it EASY for all people (incl. People of colour, or, like myself, poor people) to get a photo-ID to vote, should we have any trouble. (Myself, I don't have trouble, but some might.)
quote: [['“Madison, WI— Zack Moore, a 34-year-old African-American man, moved from Chicago to Madison last year. He worked at a car wash and then a landscaping job before breaking his leg and becoming unemployed. After staying with his brother, he’s now homeless and sleeping on the streets of Madison.
On September 22, he went to the DMV to get a photo ID for voting, as required by Wisconsin’s strict voter-ID law. He brought his Illinois photo ID, Social Security card, and a pay stub for proof of residence. But he didn’t have a copy of his birth certificate, which had been misplaced by his sister in Illinois, so the DMV wouldn’t give him an ID for voting. “I’m trying to get a Wisconsin ID so I can vote,” Moore told the DMV. “I don’t have my birth certificate, but I got everything else.”']]
Under Wisconsin law, the DMV should’ve given Moore a credential he could use for voting within six business days. But that never happened. They told him to “drive down there [to Illinois] and get [a birth certificate] and come back.” That would cost Moore money he didn’t have. If he entered what the state calls the ID Petition Process (IDPP), it would take six to eight weeks for him to get a voter ID and he most likely wouldn’t be able to vote by Election Day.”

However, a couple of things: This article quotes this man as supporting Hillary Clinton. While Clinton is not all bad, she has accomplished nothing as a Senator, and even less as a Secretary of State, in contrast to goofy, but successful, businessman, Donald J. Trump, whose employees, of all colours and types, generally love him:
Cf: “EXCLUSIVE: Donald Trump a bigot? A misogynist? Don't tell that to Lynne Patton - the African-American Trump executive who oversees MILLIONS in charitable donations and has battled addiction with the family's support,” The Daily Mail, By Ronald Kessler, Published: 14:13 EST, 25 May 2016 | Updated: 09:30 EST, 26 May 2016 www.DailyMail.co.uk/news/article-3605597/Donald-Trump-bigot-misogynist-Don-t-tell-Lynne-Patton-African-American-Trump-executive-oversees-MILLIONS-charitable-donations-battled-addiction-family-s-support.html
A vote for Hillary is not necessarily the wisest thing for this young man to do. (What has she done for African Americans, or poor people, like me, during her lengthy tenure? Maybe introduce S.3255 -the “Student Borrower Bill of Rights Act of 2006,” 109th Congress (2005-2006), but then drop it like a hot potato, once banks began giving her campaign contributions?) https://www.Congress.gov/bill/109th-congress/senate-bill/3255 But he has a right to vote for whomever he wants. Nonetheless, there ARE compelling reasons to have voter ID. – In contrast to repeated claims from my Democrat friends there there is no voter fraud, see e.g., just a SMALL sampling below to compel voters to use Photo-ID, like we do for EVERYTHING ELSE, be it banking, passports, or whatever. But, do not make it impossible for poor people to get photo-ID's, OK?

SARASOTA, FLORIDA → the nation’s LARGEST SWING STATE! (more voter fraud!..) "Former gubernatorial candidate’s election fraud complaint goes nowhere," By Steve Andrews, WFLA, Published: October 20, 2016, 6:07 pm Updated: October 20, 2016, 6:21 pm, http://wfla.com/2016/10/20/former-gubernatorial-candidates-election-fraud-complaint-goes-nowhere/
SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – A Sarasota woman complained to the state in August that residents of Puerto Rico are coming to Florida to register to vote in the November election.
That would constitute election fraud, since residents of Puerto Rico are not allowed to vote in federal elections. However the state not only deep-sixed the complaint, it told 8 On Your Side such a complaint did not even exist.
Now there are more questions about who is safeguarding Florida’s election system. “They have a responsibility to protect my vote,” said former Republican Gubernatorial hopeful Elizabeth Cuevas-Neunder.
Cuevas-Neunder wonders if Florida’s Division of Elections is protecting anyone’s vote. In August she filed an elections fraud complaint. The complaint names two organizations, Boricua Vota and Mi Familia Vota. It complaint states: “These organizations have been involved in registering Puerto Ricans from the island and returning … During elections returning them back to Florida to vote, concentrating on I-4 corridor.”
Cuevas-Neunder isn’t alone making these allegations. On Wednesday Jorge Rivera, of Riverview, told 8 On Your Side relatives of his from Puerto Rico said they plan to come to Florida to vote.
“I said, ‘Well, that’s fraud; I mean you cannot do that,'” Rivera said.
Just last week 8 On Your Side revealed Mi Familia’s involvement in submitting a voter registration application for 83-year-old Marina Agosto of Hillsborough County. Agosto insists the document is fraudulent.
The Hillsborough Supervisor of Elections Office took the position that Agosto probably signed a registration application and forgot. It did not notify Mi Familia of the discrepancy until 8 On Your Side pressed for answers.
Mi Familia Executive Director Ben Monterroso told 8 On Your Side this is the first he has heard of the elections fraud complaint filed by Cuevas-Neunder. “We’re not involved in any of that. We work with people who are eligible to vote,” Monterroso said.
When 8 On Your Side requested earlier this month to review any complaints involving Mi Familia, the Florida Division of Elections said there were none.
Cuevas-Neunder’s complaint was filed two months ago. The Division of Elections has since dismissed her complaint. A letter she received stated the department needed evidence.
The Division of Elections told 8 On Your Side when it determines a complaint is legally sufficient, it refers it to the appropriate State Attorney’s Office or the statewide prosecutor. Officials with the Statewide Prosecutor’s Office said they haven’t received such a complaint since the early 1990s.
The Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office shared that it can’t even remember the last time it received a complaint from the Florida Division of Elections.
Cuevas-Neunder vows she isn’t going to stop. “When I get everything going through, I expect all these people to get fired. Because they are lazy, they’re not doing their job; it is a government job that they have,” she said.
Cuevas-Neunder said she informed Gov. Rick Scott’s office that officials need to either meet with her or she will bring litigation against the state.
Efforts to contact Borigua Vota have been unsuccessful.

Three takeaways, here: ((#1)) We must demand all our leaders NOT be prejudiced against Blacks, women, the poor, or any minorities. ((#2)) Secondly, however, the Democrats of recent have failed the poor and minorities (as have the GOP, but in different ways: The GOP is opposed to bankruptcy options for college loans, and so are democrats, but to a lesser degree) ((#3)) While we have not eradicated prejudice or laziness in government, we also have evil voters, too, and voter fraud is not a myth. God help us all, for ALL have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God - including you, and myself.
