Shenannigans: The Big NC Voter ID Lie

Think Progress:

When Rosanell Eaton was 21 years old and living in segregated North Carolina, she became one of the first African Americans in her county registered to vote, after successfully completing a literacy test that required her to recite the preamble to the Constitution. But now, at 92 years old, she faces new obstacles under the voter suppression law signed by Gov. Pat McCrory (R) Monday. For one thing, she may not qualify for the voter ID card required under the new law, because the name on her birth certificate is different from the name on her driverís license and voter registration card. Reconciling this difference will be a costly and time-consuming administrative endeavor. For another, she has participated in early voting since it was instituted in the state. Now, itís been cut back a week.
The big lie is that Rosanell Eaton can't vote or will be required to get a special ID under the law.
limiting acceptable IDs to driver's licenses, passports, veteran's ID, or tribal cards
And yeah I took that requirement quote from another hand wringing liberal. So even they know Ms. Eaton can still vote.

She is registered to vote and carries a driver's license. Under the new law that is all that is required. Also her registration, driver's license and one utility bill would be enough to get a free state photo ID should she not renew her license.

So I don't even see how she has standing to sue in court to start with as she is not at all damaged.

Does blatant political BS lies even bother "Progressives"?

Um, no. No its doesn't. Not in the slightest.

I wouldn't say anything but this is like the fourth report I've heard that notes she has proper ID but claims she is being oppressed.

3 The US stands alone in the world as a place where no valid ID is necessary to vote. I have lived in about half a dozen countries, and in no other country could you ever dream of casting a vote without a valid ID. Lost it, can't afford it, too lazy to get one, etc. = NO VOTE.
I have to laugh at some of the stupid reasons people give in the US for not being able to get an ID, such as not being able to afford transportation to get one, but somehow they have no trouble getting transportation to go to vote!!
Advice to my US friends: take a clue from the rest of the planet, there should not be any discussion about this matter.

5 She can even get a passport with no trouble. A friend I know has a birth certificate (BC) that has a name on it that she has never used at any time in her life, she just had to sign a piece of paper in front of the Passport clerk that this was really her BC. On another friends BC the name of the state was spelled wrong, no problem went right through.

6 Every liiar like this is guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud. Just remember who they all are so after the revolution Justice can be done.

Fake journalists, mouth pieces hired by lying commies like obama (who gets charged as the top consirator along with the lackeys).

Wont go well for them when they are held to account.
