Inevitable: SJW Group Sues Over Voter ID

In North Carolina, we voted on a constitutional amendment enshrining voter ID this November, which passed 55.49% to 44.51%. Hence, the NC General Assembly passed a law, which was utterly reasonable in what IDs were required, and the governor vetoed it, which was then over-ridden by the Senate. And now

Six voters challenging the state’s new photo ID requirements filed a lawsuit minutes after the regulations became law.  The complaint was filed in Wake County Superior Court along with a motion requesting a preliminary injunction, asking the court to halt the implementation of the law until the case can be heard in court.  State lawmakers overrode Governor Cooper’s veto of S 824, Implementation of Voter ID Constitutional Amendment, on the afternoon of Wednesday, December 19, 2018, as part of a lame-duck legislative session in which several members who lost re-election voted in favor of the override.

The full complaint can be found below.

“The North Carolina Constitution provides numerous and inviolable protections for the fundamental right to vote of all its citizens,” Allison Riggs, senior voting rights attorney for the Southern Coalition for Social Justice.  “Just because the North Carolina Constitution now authorizes, with exceptions, the presentation of a picture ID when voting does not mean those other longstanding protections can be ignored or violated.”

Of course, these elitists, who all surely have some sort of ID that would be approved, feel that minorities are too stupid to get an ID (free ID’s were enshrined in the new law, and were also baked into previous state law

purposefully discriminating against and disproportionately impacting African-American and American-Indian qualified voters, in violation of the Equal Protection Clause in Article 1, § 19;

Why do they always feel that Blacks need protecting? Rather patronizing and racist, eh?

unduly burdening the fundamental right to vote, in violation of the Equal Protection Clause in Article 1, § 19;

Considering how many other states require some form of ID along the way, and that pretty much most people have one, how is this a burden?

They throw a few other reasons at the wall, but, at the end of the day, no one is disenfranchised, since there are measures for those who show up without and ID, as well. What this is really about is making sure that people who shouldn’t be voting won’t be stopped.

    Demos can’t win with it.

    If those 6 people in the suit have State issues ID, then the case is moot and they have no standing since they are not harmed by the law. If the sponsors go find 6 monkeys with no ID, those people also have no standing before the court since they cannot prove their identity. Case closed.

    FWIW a non-driver ID runs you about $16 for 4 years in most states.

    A few are cheaper. OH is 8, but (surprise!) NY is a bargain at $13 for 8 years.

    There are a few that abuse the privilege, CA and PA charge about $30, but, again, it is 4 years

    It ought to be obvious: if you cannot make it to the places in which state-issued photo IDs are made, then you can’t make it to the polls on election day.

    The left are simply beside themselves that a foreign government might have influenced real American citizens to vote against Hillary Clinton, but have no problem at all with actual foreigners voting in our elections.

    That’s because the illegal votes are cast for democrat/communists. Just like the leftists would be uniformly for a 50′ electrified wall at the Mexican border if illegals were voting Republican, so too would they be for voter ID, proof of citizenship and probably voting only for taxpayers if these peoples voted Republican.

    No, the Demoncrat operatives will come right to your gravesite to collect your ballot and will not cease their efforts until their trunks are full and it is 24 hours after the polls close.

    I read rumors the democrats are almost finished counting the votes in Florida. Just two more car trunks to go.
