WASHINGTONThe Justice Department blocked South Carolina's new voter identification law, citing concerns about the law's effect on African-American voters and setting up a new conflict between the Obama administration and Republican-led state governments.
The South Carolina proposal would require voters to provide state-issued or military photo identification in order to cast a ballot. Current law allows voters to use a printed voter registration card as identification.
Under the federal Voting Rights Act, South Carolina must prove that any changes in voting law don't have the effect of discriminating against minorities. The state can either change the law or, more likely, ...

Voting multiple times is a civil right if you are one of Eric Holder’s people.
IIRC, thanks to Bush 43, the Voting Rights Act was extended another 20 years or so.
It is way past time to take the VRA, aka Reconstruction Part II to the Supremes. No d@amn Marxist Attorney General should have the power to ‘eff over the will of the people like this as expressed through their state legislatures.
DNA voter registration when you are born.
REMEMBER CITIZEN, VOTING ISN’T JUST A RIGHT.
IT’S THE LAW!
So let it be written, so it shall be done.
Eric Holder “Logic”
Black Panther Voter Intimidation - Okay
Voter ID Requirement for all Citizens to ensure an honest Election- Bad
Between the rhinos in Virginia
And the Marxists in South Carolina
We are in trouble people
God bless America
Lock and load
It doesn’t make a lot of sense. Lots of other states now have voter ID laws in place. I guess this is just an attempt to stop the bleeding.
EBT Cards should have photos on them of the “bearer”.
This would also cut down of some of the corruption in use.
As taxpaying citizens who PAY for them, everyone should contact their congresscritters until someone introduces a law to institute this.
I believe the VRA gives Holder special powers in the southern states...somewhat ironic since it was Democrats who suppressed the black vote in the south.
This cannot go on. All it takes is for one "minority" to say "I don't like it!" Provided of course it's an approved minority.
But what the hell, I'm white. If I want something -- a Rolls, a private jet, a PhD, whatever I want like making professional sports white-only, whatever -- I just dial that secret 800 number that all us whites get at birth.
Sure, just go read either of these stories previously posted on FR on 12/23/11:
How many States are being sued over voter ID? How dare the people through their elected reps demand to know who are casting votes! What about DOJ opposition to new Congressional districts? We haven't heard much about ACORN or Black Panthers recently, but I am absolutely positive that tax payer money is still going to these professional election thieves.
“and the marxist in South Carolina”
The problem here is not the Conservative people of South Carolina but the marxist in Washington DC.
This is what happens when a half-black racist is elected President and brings his Bro’s in to help him stay in office.
Dear Gov. Haley,
Now repeat after me, now matter how many times you try to “play nice” (Boeing debacle/compromise) with Obama, they’ll always bite you in the ass in the end.
Holder would argue that that is not enough ID since "everybody know all black folks look alike". So what good would it do? So it is unconstitutional!
I'll bet he might try to argue this way, too!
It took some 6 years of fighting in court to get our Michigan voter ID law enacted but the administration isn’t fighting us on it. However our secretary of state has run into a brick wall on getting help to remove dead and illegal voters from the voter rolls. Neither the INS or Social Security administration will help.
I am so damn sick and tired of this black b/s.
This administration has as its primary goal and objective the codification of a divided America based on “identity groups.” It seeks to legalize divisions, with those groups it favors (ethnic minorities, moslems, people dependent upon the government, illegals) having broader rights and freedoms than those groups it disfavors (white working class, especially males, conservatives, Christians).
My contempt for this administration has reached extreme depths.
Nikki needs to be the first non-black politician to stand up and say she won’t allow the Feds to interfere. She should say clearly that she expects black people to have the ability to follow the law like anybody else, she knows they can, and that this administration is playing a racist game, to cynically use black people as pawns in their power games.
We do in Ohio.
Note that this happened during the end of the week before Christmas so its recieving no media attention.
And that's exactly what it is - black entitlement mentality. Too bad for the black conservative members of this forum though when some people (not you) tend to lump them all together. I wish that everybody would realize that not all black people agree with Holder/Obama and their ilk.
That’s funny, thanks for the link.
“It doesnt make a lot of sense. Lots of other states now have voter ID laws in place.”
Yes, but racism only exists in the Old South, don’t you know?
They’ll come after TN before it’s over with. Heck, our RINO Gov. has issued a couple of statements in the past week or so saying he has misgivings about our new law. What a JERK!!
They bent over backwards to make it easy - - and FREE for many - - to get a photo ID in plenty of time for the elections. Anyone who doesn’t have one in time can blame no one but themselves!
I hope Gov. Haley fights this crap with everything she’s got. The Obama Admin. has been over-stepping bounds and getting away with it for too long.
You are so right. It’s got to be even tougher of our black conservative friends.
We get everything we want and we fix it so no one else can do that. I exposed our little secret above, the special 800 number that only we have; before telephones it a special telegraph, drum, and smoke signals.
Every year I call the educational testing organizations and instruct them to double white scores and reduce black scores by thirty percent.
In 2000 I told Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris that I don't want any black votes to count -- and get rid of that make up! You'll look a lot better without it!
There I feel much better now.

IIRC, a federal law was passed during the late Bush administration regarding the States getting their voter rolls cleaned up. Holder specifically told the States to ignore it.
You have to show photo ID for just about everything else in this country...even to use a credit card at the mall, so why not the same to cast a legal vote; to verify that you are who you state yourself to be. This should not even be an issue. You can be darn sure that if "minorites" or others subject to "disenfranchisement" needed to show a photo ID for "guvmint" hand outs, they'd sure as shootin' have one or walk over broken glass to get one!
Instead of attacking laws requiring everyone to show photo ID to vote, the administration should be looking into why there are laws preventing minorities from getting picture IDs. Clearly, that is the real problem here. Without ID, it is almost impossible to live and function in our society.
What? Minorities have a legal right to get picture ID?
absolutely...agreed....for the most part.
except SC’s’conservative’ governor just backed Mittens Romney for POTUS...whats up with that??
Probably thinks she has a shot at VEEP. Romney has probably tossed the “you could be my veep” to quite a few governors, senators and whoevers expecting these endorsements. Politicans are not that much different than the rest of the people, many would eagerly sell their souls.
