Green card holder registered to vote (and VOTED) in Columbus County

Those folks fighting tooth and nail to block voter ID — claiming there is no fraud at the polls — will be left sputtering by this story: A federal judge has chastised election officials in North Carolina who let a Korean woman with a green card vote in three elections. The News & Observer reports Hyo Suk George had lived legally in the country for nearly two decades before a town council member at church encouraged her to vote. She registered in Columbus County with a driver’s license, Social Security number — and a green card. George voted in 2008,…

Bob Orr swan dives into the leftist hysteria over voter ID

When he was on the bench,  I thought Bob Orr was one of the smartest, sanest people out there. My how things change. Here’s Orr, the Democrats’ and driveby media’s faaaaaaaaaavorite Republican in The Charlotte Observer: The Observer’s editorial board recently opined against a new Republican proposal for a constitutional amendment requiring photo voter IDs for North Carolina elections. Six months ago, I would have disagreed with the board. Voter IDs to me and probably many North Carolinians seemed a common sense, albeit small, way to combat potential voter fraud – a problem that’s not fictional. Opponents to voter IDs contend,…

Left-wing racism rears its head in #ncpol debate

We’re told charter schools are bad because, if the wealthier mostly-white parents who really care about their kids’ education partake in a little school choice, all that will be left in the traditional bureaucratic rat-hole public schools will be mostly lower-income and minority students.  Average test scores will plummet.  Government grants will dry up.  Now, here come the voter ID opponents telling us that it is racist to even suggest that everyone needs to be able to absolutely prove who they are — even when partaking in one of our most sacred cherished rights as Americans. If you believe the…

#ncpol: Pin the grievance on the donk — um, jackass.

Former US Department of Justice official J. Christian Adams was a vote fraud expert at the US DOJ during the Bush years.  He quit his post in early 2009 after Obama attorney general Eric Holder refused to prosecute The New Black Panther Party for intimidation at the polls in Philadelphia. Writing in PJ Media, Adams says our new attorney general Josh Stein has some ‘splainin’ to do: […] North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein (D) has been accused of committing serious ethical misconduct in a brief filed before the United States Supreme Court. Lawyers for the North Carolina Legislature have…

#ncpol: SCOTUS and voter ID

Scowl-field and Fitz-Cryin’ over at NCPolicywatch have been engaged in tickle fights ever since the nation’s highest court split on North Carolina’s voter ID law.   It’s a blow against racism, we’re told, that no one will be able to verify anybody’s identity at the polls.  Never mind that some of the biggest vote fraud problems in North Carolina have victimized minority voters and candidates. In Lumberton, Robeson County’s seat of government, there is one city council district where they haven’t been able to hold a clean, controversy-free election since 2003.  All three elections — 2007,2011, and 2015 — featured…

Stay! (McCrory seeks to preserve Voter ID for November vote)

Gov. Pat McCrory and his lawyers are looking for a solid from US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts:  Governor Pat McCrory has formally requested U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to stay a ruling by the Fourth Circuit and reinstate North Carolina’s Voter ID law. “Today we have asked Chief Justice John Roberts to stay the Fourth Circuit’s ruling and reinstate North Carolina’s Voter ID law,” said Governor McCrory. “This common sense law was upheld by the U.S. District Court. Our Voter ID law has been cited as a model and other states are using similar laws without…

#ncpol: Delaying SCOTUS appeal on voter ID ruling until NEXT YEAR. (Really?)

That’s the line of thinking percolating amidst NCGOPe circles in Raleigh.  The argument?  I am told that top pro- arguments include (1) one less distraction during campaign season, and (2) the chance there will be a new Supreme Court justice in DC who will give our state a fair shake. My first problem with that thinking?  We COULD be saddled with GOVERNOR Roy Cooper and ATTORNEY GENERAL Josh Stein ( andy maybe speaker Larry Hall)  in January.  WHO will be left — with standing — to file or argue said appeal?   Josh? Roy? Larry?  Nope, nope, and nope. The…

Tyranny wears a black robe

So many people have been concerned about Barack Obama and the potential reign of terror by the pant-suited she-devil.  They really need to be focused on the most serious problem affecting our country and its future: ideologues on the bench who are way too comfortable with tip-toeing across the line from the judicial branch into the executive and legislative branches.  Unlike the legislative and executive branches, these people are unaccountable and untouchable.  They get lifetime appointments. While our Founders intended the judiciary to be a referee — stepping in when our executive and judiciary branches stray too far from The…

Did Richard Burr confess to a crime?

Albeit a minor infraction.  But, still:  If you have U.S. Sen. Richard Burr’s drivers license, he may not need it anymore. In a Saturday speech to Rowan Republicans, Burr told a brief story of losing his driver’s license when going to vote recently. He speculated the driver’s license might be in the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, located in Arlington, Virginia. I can just imagine some underage college kid using it to get served in a Georgetown bar.  *Here you go, senator.  A Shock Top in a dirty glass.*  MORE:  “I said ‘my passports are in Washington and I don’t…

SCOTUS: Makin’ $%#@ up as they go

Oh, the hits just keep on coming.  Many of us are still trying to cope with the news — delivered by the Court — that our Constitution specifically protects gay marriage, ObamaCare, and government witch-hunts against ”unintentional discrimination.”  (And you thought 1973’s Roe v. Wade was some creative jurisprudence!)  Now, we’re being informed that proof of citizenship is not all that important in determining eligibility to vote: The Supreme Court today refused to accept a case which sought to allow states to supplement a federal voter registration form so as to require proof of citizenship to vote. Such proof is particularly…
