Carol Platt Liebau: Ritzy Mekler's Bill

Ritzy Mekler's Bill

A voter identification law in Missouri is being challenged by those who seem to hold that there's a fundamental right to cast a fraudulent vote. Apparently, it's being claimed that the law's not fair to the scores of Americans who neither write checks, fly, use credit cards or engage in any of the countless activities of daily American life that require possession of a government issued photo ID.

''This requirement imposes an unnecessary, unauthorized and undue burden on the fundamental right to vote of at least 170,000 registered Missouri voters who do not currently possess a photo ID,'' the lawsuit said.

These litigants don't seem to remember that those of us who are voting legally have rights, too -- including the right not to have our votes diluted by scores of fraudulent ballots.

Presumably, Ritzy Mekler -- the famous St. Louis voting dog -- is a plaintiff to the suit.

"Diluted" is correct.....These votes do one of two things:

1. Every vote counted which shouldn't be, cancels out a legitimate one for the oponent of the fraudulent vote.

2. Every vote counted which shouldn't be, doubles up the vote for the person/proposition fraudulently voted on.

Both of which make fraudulent votes a powerful tool.

I suspect the amount of money spent on the litigation would be sufficient to provide every plaintiff with a free ID.

To this end, Carol, where can I contribute money so that any indigent person in Missouri requiring an ID to vote can get one for free?

Carol, put up or shut up time. According to the lawsuit there are over 170,000 Missorians who would not be allowed to vote under the new law. Please provide some evidence--any evidence that that there were even 1% of that number of fraudulant ballots cast in Missouri in any recent election cycle.

Why don't Republicans want people to vote?

Twister,

It's not how many fraudulent votes there are. The point was preventing fraudulent voting, or reducing it's likelyhood. What's your problem with that? Can't your side win with only legitimate votes?

Mr. Twister knows very well that it is the Democrat party that want's to rig elections and that's
why they don't want I.D.s.
That's the only way they can win most Elections.
