I’m so tired of the progressive racism, such as that exhibited by Fudge, with the idea that minorities and specifically African-Americans are so “marginal” that they can’t produce an ID. Every other realm of life requires IDs, and it is the one sure way of insuring the person registered to vote is the actual voter. But of course, that’s the problem, isn’t it?

Via The Blaze:

Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder last week asking him to review two proposed voting measures she claims are designed to “suppress the voting rights of African Americans and other minorities.”

“I am concerned about restrictive legislation concerning voter photo identification and the reduction of early voting days pending in the Ohio legislature, and seek your assistance,” Fudge wrote in her letter.

The legislation, S. 238 and H.B. 269, would reduce the number of absentee voting days by six, prohibit pre-paid absentee ballots from being mailed to every voter and require individuals present a form of photo ID to vote.

“I believe both of these proposals are designed to systemically restrict the access of eligible Ohioans’ to the voting booth, particularly minorities, students and the elderly,” Fudge said of the proposals.
