    Bennet Urges DOJ To Review Voter ID Laws | Senate Democrats



    Restrictive Voter ID Laws Could Disenfranchise Thousands of Eligible Voters



    Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) today requested that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) carefully review highly restrictive photo identification voter requirements that are under consideration or recently signed into law in several states that could potentially disenfranchise thousands of eligible voters.

    In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, Bennet—along with Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV) and U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin (IL), Chuck Schumer (NY), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Sherrod Brown (OH), Jeanne Shaheen (NH), Jeff Merkley (OR), Mark Begich (AK), Ben Cardin (MD), Mary Landrieu (LA), Patty Murray (WA), Ron Wyden (OR), Tom Harkin (IA), Herb Kohl (WI) and Tom Udall (NM)—expressed serious concerns about voter identification laws, which could disenfranchise American voters.

    Yes I'm sure he has as the next election is not going to go at all well for your party. If the illegals can't vote just think how many seats you might lose.

    I'm sure there will be a Black Panther at every polling place courtesy of Eric Holder and his goons. It's not like the Dems are much on fair and free elections.

    Thanks to Obama and the Nationalsozialismus.

    You can't do anything without ID except fart. There is nothing wrong with requiring ID. Obama comes from Chicago and we know how their political machine works. He is buying black votes, Hispanic votes, Muslim votes, welfare votes. The only ones he is not getting are the people paying the bills. What a mistake we made.

    And his policies are quickly eroding the number of people paying the biils. Obama, the foodstamp President.

    Count on Holder's "justice dept" to drop everything and concentrate on getting Obama elected.

    It can be a real pain to get an ID though. Here in GA, they require proof of residency that I don't currently have, despite living at my current address for more than a year. I'm an unusual case, and I'm not saying requiring ID to vote is a bad thing, I just feel the need to point out it's not necessarily all partisan rhetoric. There may actually be legitimate concern involved (I know, how likely does that sound? :lol:).

    Can any of you give a shred of proof for your claims that ID laws disenfranchise no one?
