The NAACP is a supporter and co-conspirator of voter fraud. Of course they would come out against any laws that help combat voter fraud and are using fear mongering tactics to hide the truth. Asking people to show their ID’s before voting does not “disenfranchise” the poor or minority voters. When they can’t use facts to support their claim, the NAACP pulls the race card.
From The Guardian:
The largest civil rights group in America, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), is petitioning the UN over what it sees as a concerted efforted to disenfranchise black and Latino voters ahead of next year’s presidential election.
The organisation will this week present evidence to the UN high commissioner on human rights of what it contends is a conscious attempt to “block the vote” on the part of state legislatures across the US. Next March the NAACP will send a delegation of legal experts to Geneva to enlist the support of the UN human rights council.
The NAACP contends that the America in the throes of a consciously conceived and orchestrated move to strip black and other ethnic minority groups of the right to vote. William Barber, a member of the association’s national board, said it was the “most vicious, co-ordinated and sinister attack to narrow participation in our democracy since the early 20th century”.
In its report, Defending Democracy: Confronting Modern Barriers to Voting Rights in America, the NAACP explores the voter supression measures taking place particularly in southern and western states.
Fourteen states have passed a total of 25 measures that will unfairly restrict the right to vote, among black and Hispanic voters in particular. The new measures are focused – not coincidentally, the association insists – in states with the fastest growing black populations (Florida, Georgia, Texas and North Carolina) and Latino populations (South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee). The NAACP sees this as a cynical backlash to a surge in ethnic minority voting evident in 2008.
The NAACP believes that showing ID to vote will stop minorities from voting, along with the dead and Disney characters who frequently vote for Democrats. This is the only reason they are pulling the race card.
The left is against the idea of having to show your ID when you vote. They claim it hurts the poor and minority communities and want to make it a race-based/class warfare issue. Of course, most know this is nonsense.
One must show ID when cashing a check at the bank. One must show ID when boarding a plane. One must show ID when applying for a job. Everyday, people must show their IDs in many situations but those on the left hate to show IDs when voting because it stops dead people, and frauds, from voting for Democrats.
The NYTimes whines:
Since Republicans won control of many statehouses last November, more than a dozen states have passed laws requiring voters to show photo identification at polls, cutting back early voting periods or imposing new restrictions on voter registration drives.
How dare they want to protect elections by stopping fraud.
With a presidential campaign swinging into high gear, the question being asked is how much of an impact all of these new laws will have on the 2012 race.
State officials, political parties and voting experts have all said that the impact could be sizable. Now, a new study to be released Monday by the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law has tried to tally just how many voters stand to be affected.
A left-leaning organization from a liberal college. Yes, we should believe their findings because surely they have no bias. Trail lawyers vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. Shhh. Most don’t know this fact.
The center, which has studied the new laws and opposed some of them in court and other venues, analyzed 19 laws that passed and 2 executive orders that were issued in 14 states this year, and concluded that they “could make it significantly harder for more than five million eligible voters to cast ballots in 2012.”
How do they know that 5 million “eligible voters” don’t have IDs?
Republicans, who have passed almost all of the new election laws, say they are necessary to prevent voter fraud, and question why photo identification should be routinely required at airports but not at polling sites. Democrats counter that the new laws are a solution in search of a problem, since voter fraud is rare. They worry that the laws will discourage, or even block, eligible voters — especially poor voters, young voters and African-American voters, who tend to vote for Democrats.
Of course Democrats would claim that voter fraud is rare because they are generally the ones committing the crime. Every American has ID, from photo IDs to social security cards. Why are Democrats afraid to require a voter to show ID? Because it stops fraud. Ask the banks and airline companies for proof.
The Justice Department must review the new laws in several states to make sure that they do not run afoul of theVoting Rights Act. The Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s voter identification law in 2008, saying that while it found no evidence of the fraud the law was intended to combat, it also found no evidence that the new requirements were a burden on voters.
There is no burden. This is the attempt by Democrats and the liberal media to claim class warfare. This is their only hope to get Obama elected. Stir the base and make it a class warfare election. I hope none of these ID opponents have to cash that government or unemployment check. Having no ID will stop one from cashing in.
No wonder the NAACP, and the majority on the left, are against showing ID at polling stations. It makes it hard to vote…over and over again.
The Daily Caller reports:
While NAACP President Benjamin Jealous lashed out at new state laws requiring photo ID for voting, an NAACP executive sits in prison, sentenced for carrying out a massive voter fraud scheme.
In a story ignored by the national media, in April a Tunica County, Miss., jury convicted NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers is identified on an NAACP website as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee.
Sowers received a five-year prison term for each of the 10 counts, but Circuit Court Judge Charles Webster permitted Sowers to serve those terms concurrently, according to the Tunica Times, the only media outlet to cover the sentencing.
“This crime cuts against the fabric of our free society,” Judge Webster said.
Sowers was found guilty of voting in the names of Carrie Collins, Walter Howard, Sheena Shelton, Alberta Pickett, Draper Cotton and Eddie Davis. She was also convicted of voting in the names of four dead persons: James L. Young, Dora Price, Dorothy Harris, and David Ross.
Democrats do love to vote early and vote often. Ask any dead person.
In the trial, forensic scientist Bo Scales testified that Sowers’s DNA was found on the inner seals of five envelopes containing absentee ballots.
This wasn’t Sowers’s first run-in with the law. Sowers previously had her probation revoked for disturbing the peace at a junior high school library, the Commercial Appeal of Memphis reported in 1990. During a hearing at that time, Sowers played the race card. She claimed to be the victim of “an attempt by powerful whites to silence” her, the newspaper reported. It didn’t work. She was ordered back to prison to complete the remaining two years of a three-year sentence she received for check forgery.
The NAACP has had other problems with voter fraud. The NAACP National Voter Fund registered a dead man to vote in Lake County, Ohio, in 2004. That same year, out of 325 voter registration cards filed by the NAACP in Cleveland, 48 were flagged as fraudulent.

This is not shocking since it involves Google. If you’re a smartphone user, your information is being shared and you have no clue who has access to it or how it is being used.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Few devices know more personal details about people than the smartphones in their pockets: phone numbers, current location, often the owner’s real name—even a unique ID number that can never be changed or turned off.
These phones don’t keep secrets. They are sharing this personal data widely and regularly, a Wall Street Journal investigation has found.
An examination of 101 popular smartphone ”apps”—games and other software applications for iPhone and Android phones—showed that 56 transmitted the phone’s unique device ID to other companies without users’ awareness or consent. Forty-seven apps transmitted the phone’s location in some way. Five sent age, gender and other personal details to outsiders.
The findings reveal the intrusive effort by online-tracking companies to gather personal data about people in order to flesh out detailed dossiers on them.
Among the apps tested, the iPhone apps transmitted more data than the apps on phones using Google Inc.’s Android operating system. Because of the test’s size, it’s not known if the pattern holds among the hundreds of thousands of apps available.
Apps sharing the most information included TextPlus 4, a popular iPhone app for text messaging. It sent the phone’s unique ID number to eight ad companies and the phone’s zip code, along with the user’s age and gender, to two of them.
Both the Android and iPhone versions of Pandora, a popular music app, sent age, gender, location and phone identifiers to various ad networks. iPhone and Android versions of a game called Paper Toss—players try to throw paper wads into a trash can—each sent the phone’s ID number to at least five ad companies. Grindr, an iPhone app for meeting gay men, sent gender, location and phone ID to three ad companies.
“In the world of mobile, there is no anonymity,” says Michael Becker of the Mobile Marketing Association, an industry trade group. A cellphone is “always with us. It’s always on.”
Remember, Google is the same company that admitted its stole personal emails, passwords and IP address with it’s street mapping system.

How will all those illegal immigrants send their packages back to Mexico and South America? If you ask them for their IDs, the far-left will scream RACISM and the Obama administration will sue you in federal court and turn you over to the U.N. for human rights violations.
But if you’re an American, born and raised in the U.S.A., you will have to show your ID. Its only racist if you ask a protected minority group for theirs. We live in two worlds. One where law-abiding Americans citizens have to follow the laws and the other world where criminal illegal immigrants are granted more freedoms because their feelings can’t be hurt.
The Associated Press reports:
NEW YORK – UPS is now requiring photo identification from customers shipping packages at retail locations around the world, a month after explosives made it on to one of the company’s planes.
The Atlanta-based package courier said Tuesday the move is part of an ongoing review to enhance security. The directive will apply at The UPS Store, Mail Boxes Etc. locations and other authorized shipping outlets.
UPS customer centers have required government-issued photo identification since 2005.
That is pure racism.
In late October, a printer cartridge on a UPS cargo plane bound for Chicago was stopped in London after explosives were discovered. The package was later traced to a retail location in Yemen.
The stepped-up security also comes as UPS prepares for its busiest shipping day of the year. United Parcel Service expects to deliver 430 million packages between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and 24 million packages alone on its busiest day, projected to be Dec. 22. That’s up 60 percent from a normal day.
