Anti-Photo ID Legislation Would Promote Election Fraud, Says
Washington, D.C. – Legislation introduced by Representative Keith
Ellison (D-MN) to prohibit photo ID requirements for voting in federal elections
would promote election fraud, say members of the black leadership network
"Representative Ellison’s proposal is fundamentally flawed
and potentially harmful to the integrity of our democratic process," said
Project 21 chairman Mychal Massie. "Why invite that which can only lead to
unimaginable fraud and corruption?"
Imposing existing Minnesota election
law on a national scale, the "Voter Access Protection Act of 2007" (H.R. 4026)
would ban the use of photo ID for voter verification in federal elections. Rep.
Ellison calls photo ID requirements "burdensome" and liken them to a "modern-day
poll tax." He further charges that the Bush Administrations enforcement of
voting rights issues effectively promotes "voter suppression of minorities,
seniors and young people."
"The Ellison bill will do nothing more than
encourage situations in which legitimate minority, elderly and poor voters –
among others – will be disfranchised by non-citizens and corrupt political
activists," said Project 21 member Kevin Martin. "Americans are already required
to present photo ID for things such as banking and travel. I must show a photo
ID if I want to try to talk to Representative Ellison about his bill in the
Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol, but I presently do not need to show any
identification to vote for him back in Minnesota. To compare voter security
precautions to a poll tax is reprehensible."
Project 21 members suggest
that voting rights groups – many of which accept taxpayer funds – offer services
to ensure those currently without valid ID can obtain them.
"Photo ID is
not the problem. Photo ID is the solution," added Project 21’s Massie. "The
rational and responsible response to complaints about a photo ID requirement is
to help those who absolutely cannot get identification without assistance. If
groups such as ACORN can afford to conduct voter registration and voter
education and transport people to the polls on Election Day, they should
certainly be able to transport and subsidize the cost of IDs for those who need
them as well. If they cannot undertake this pro-active action when they can
afford to lobby and litigate against photo ID requirements, they reveal their
concerns are disingenuous."
