YES! Sessions Just Made Major Move For Voter ID Law!
This is why the libs are so afraid of Jeff Sessions.
He’s going to jail their PizzaGate heroes and he’s going to wipe out voter fraud so the libs will never win another election!
I’d be afraid too if I were a pizza-loving lib!
Check out the latest move by Sessions to support Voter ID laws at the State level. BOOM!
From the Daily Caller:
State legislatures have begun pushing voter identification proposals since Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered the Justice Department to withdraw from its legal fight against Texas’s voter ID law.
The move by Sessions is a reversal of the previous administration’s DOJ six-year legal battle against the Texas law.
Officials from the Justice Department contacted liberal activist groups on board with the lawsuit against Texas, including the Brennan Center for Justice, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the NAACP, and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund about the change in policy at the DOJ, Salon reported.
Texas’s Republican majority legislature passed one of the strictest voter ID laws in the country in 2011 that mandated voters to show a driver’s license, passport or other government-issued photo ID prior to casting a ballot. The Obama administration Justice Department managed to block the law in 2013 after the department sued the state. A federal appeals court later ruled in 2016 the law discriminated against minorities without IDs and the legislation needed to be loosened.
Texas Republicans had already revealed their new voter ID bill a week before the DOJ announcement. The new legislation would revamp the state’s voter identification rules in an effort to abide by the court rulings.
Other state lawmakers seeing an opportunity with the change in policy with the new administration followed suit to join the more than 30 states with voter ID requirements at the polls. At least 16 states are considering voter ID proposals in their state legislatures.
Iowa legislators in the House passed a voter ID bill last week after 12 hours of debate. The Iowa bill calls for five forms of ID that would be valid at the polls — four include a photo. The fifth ID option is a new voter verification card the state and county would issue to each voter for free. Should a voter appear at the polls without a valid ID, the individual could cast a provisional ballot.
