Maher on voter ID: Black people don't have photo ID since 'they take the bus because they're poor' | The Daily Caller

Potty mouth Democrat Bill Maher encapsulates the bankrupt thinking of the hard left. Liberals continue to mouth the mantra that there is no proof that there is voter fraud. There is plenty or proof of voter fraud and sometimes, as in Minnesota in 2008 it actually has an impact. But what really amazes me is that liberals argue against ensuring that people are properly identified at polls using identifications that are mandatory in many many aspects of daily life due to "POOR BLACKS." Poor blacks? I hear about these poor blacks all of the time. Are they only just poor? Are all blacks poor? Or is it just blacks that are stupid and incapable of living their own lives and therefore poor? Since when are blacks stupid and incapable? And why would one hold a different or lower standard of behavior solely because one is black or in this case 'poor black?" I am under the impression that black folks are pretty capable. They are quite capable of getting into cars and driving, going to the a store, making their choices and living like normal humans. Just because they are poor does not make them drooling morons.

The last time that I voted at a polling place, I had to show an ID. In that case, it was a driving license. It probably cost me $50 for 10 years. Yes, kind of expensive but I guess necessary. Some argue that this is too much money for 'poor blacks.' Maybe it is. And maybe some do not drive. But these states also offer non driving ID's but these also cost money. Need these ID's many more purposes than just voting. So if this is such a gigantic problem, the ID thing, there seems to be an avenue to solve this problem. I suggest private charity. Liberals can donate money, create organizations and/or donate time to assist these 'poor blacks' in getting an ID that will not only impact their lives in the voting process but also has positive impacts in other aspects where an ID would assist them or allow them to do other things.

As far as the voting fraud nonsense. there is not only proof, the Democrats for decades has admitted that voter fraud has been part of their electoral style and them even joking about it....
"I have just received the following telegram from my generous father: 'Dear Jack: Don't buy a single vote more than is necessary. I'll help you win this election, but I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for a landslide!'" -Joe Kennedy on his son's, JFK, election-
And then there were electoral shenanigans in the Democratic machines of Chicago, Kansas City, Texas to name a few. Here is a more modern example of what voter fraud looks like...
two Troy city officials, the city clerk and a councilman, along with two Democratic political operatives, have pled guilty to forging absentee-ballot signatures and casting fraudulent ballots in the 2009 Working Families Party primary. The WFP is the political party associated with ACORN.

One of the citizens whose votes were stolen was stunned at what happened. She said that she was “sure this goes on a lot in politics, but it’s very rare that they do get caught.” This voter was right on the money with that observation — fraud is so easy to commit in our election system that it is rare that fraudsters get caught and even rarer that they get prosecuted.

As for the constant liberal claims that voter fraud does not occur, one of the Democratic operatives who pled guilty, Anthony DeFiglio, told New York State police investigators “that faking absentee ballots was a commonplace and accepted practice in political circles, all intended to swing an election.” And whose votes do they steal? DeFiglio was very plain about that: “The people who are targeted live in low-income housing, and there is a sense that they are a lot less likely to ask any questions.”
and one can read about other examples here.

Honestly, it appears as if voter fraud is a very local problem and gigantic conspiracies that generate 1000's or 10s of thousand votes are probably difficult to execute. However, the requirement of showing a valid identification seems logical in this day and age where even welfare or food stamp recipients get their benefits on electronic cards presumably after proving who they are in this process.
