Obama White House Touts Kenyan Program to Obtain National ID Cards for Voter Registration … But in America Obama Mouth Piece Says, “We should not be imposing unnecessary obstacles or barriers to voter participation.”
You just can’t make this stuff up …
While on his $100 million tax payer paid trip to Africa, The Weekly Standard reports the Obama White House touted the Kenyan program to use a national ID card for voter registration. The WH stated, one of the first items highlighted by the White House is a $53 million program in Kenya that helps young people “obtain National identification cards, a prerequisite to voter registration.” Sounds great doesn’t it? Barack Obama and his minions are praising a national ID card as a prerequisite to “voter registration.”
FACT SHEET: U.S. Support for Strengthening Democratic Institutions, Rule of Law, and Human Rights in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Civil society and independent media play a critical role in any vibrant democracy. Across sub-Saharan Africa, the United States supports efforts to ensure civil society organizations and independent media can organize, advocate, and raise awareness with governments and the private sector to improve political processes, transparency, and government performance. Examples include:
• In Kenya, the $53 million Yes Youth Can program empowers nearly one million Kenyan youth to use their voices for advocacy in national and local policy-making, while also creating economic opportunities. In advance of Kenya’s March 2013 general elections, Yes Youth Can’s “My ID My Life” campaign helped 500,000 youth obtain National identification cards, a prerequisite to voter registration, and carried out a successful nationwide campaign with Kenyan civic organizations to elicit peace pledges from all presidential aspirants.
So what is wrong with this picture? Isn’t it Barack Obama and Democrats that are against voter ID in order to prove who you are at the ballot? Do they think we just forget or don’t have the ability to use an Internet search engine? At an August 2012 press briefing, Jay Carney had the following to say about a Texas voter ID law: “And on the voter ID case, I can tell you that, as you know, this administration believes it should be easier for eligible citizens to vote — to register and vote. We should not be imposing unnecessary obstacles or barriers to voter participation.”
So what’s the difference between Kenya’s national ID for voter registration and a voter ID in Texas? Oh that’s right, no voter fraud in Kenya can sway the election for Obama or Democrats. How come an ID card is not a barrier to voter participation in Kenya?
Melowese Richardson, Poll Worker Who Admitted Voting for Obama 6 Times in 2012 Election Indicted and Faces Eight Counts of Voter Fraud
Melowese Richardson, the face of Obama voter fraud …
58 year old Melowese Richardson, who admitted to voting multiple times for Barack Obama in the 2012 election, has been indicted on 8 counts of voter fraud. Richardson has been indicted for allegedly voting at least six times and also was charged with illegal voting in 2008 and 2011. Because there is no such thing as a one time voter fraud participant. Richardson had previously admitted on camera to a local TV station, “Yes, I voted twice.” It will be pretty hard for her to say she was taken out of context after bragging she committed voter fraud. It is obviously time for voter identification and a database to keep track of who voted, where, when and how often. No matter what becomes of this prosecution, any one who pursues this will be branded racists.
She admitted voting twice in the presidential election last November, and now, Obama supporter Melowese Richardson has been indicted for allegedly voting at least six times. She also is charged with illegal voting in 2008 and 2011.
The 58-year-old veteran Cincinnati poll worker, indicted Monday, faces eight counts of voter fraud. Two others, one of whom is a nun, have been charged separately.
Richardson had admitted on camera to a local TV station, “Yes, I voted twice,” claiming she was concerned that her vote would not count. She also said there “was no intent on my part to commit any voter fraud.”
EXIT QUESTION: Just how many Melowese Richardson’s voted in Ohio and across the United States in 2012?
VOTER FRAUD: Ohio Poll Worker Melowese Richardson Who Proadly Boasted of Voting For Obama Twice In Ohio, May Have actually Voted Six Times
You Once, Twice, Six Times an Obama voter … I am expecting Lionel Richey and the Commodores to break out into song at any moment. So just how much voter fraud went on in the 2012 Presidential elections?
Thanks for the times
That you’ve voted for me
The memories are all in my mind
And now that we’ve come
To the end of our voter fraud
I must say out loud
You’re once, twice
Six times an Obama voter
Yes you’re once twice
Six times an Obama voter …
Melowese Richardson, the Ohio poll worker who previously boasted of voting for Barack Obama twice during the 2012 presidential election may have actually voted six times. Richardson previously told a local television station that she voted twice last November. She claims to have cast an absentee ballot and then voted at the polls as well. However, that might be just the tip of the voter fraud iceberg. As reported at Fox News, authorities are investigating if she voted in the names of four other people, too, for a total of six votes in the 2012 presidential election. Richardson is one of 19 people suspected of illegal voting by the Hamilton County Board of Elections in the last election. Most likely this is like the cockroach principle, for ever one that is seen, there are hundreds and thousands in the walls. Melowese Richardson admits to voting twice and possibly up to six times; however, she claims “There was absolutely no intent on my part to commit any voter fraud.” A note to Miss Richardson, you admitted to voting twice, that is intent to commit voter fraud you idiot.
The Obama/Biden lawn sign remains proudly planted in front of MelowesSe Richardson’s Cincinnati home, three months after the presidential election.
It seems that President Obama has an especially ardent supporter in the veteran Ohio poll worker.
Richardson told a local television station this month that she voted twice last November. She cast an absentee ballot and then voted at the polls as well.
“Yes, I voted twice,” Richardson told WCPO-TV. “I, after registering thousands of people, certainly wanted my vote to count, so I voted. I voted at the polls.”
Authorities also are investigating if she voted in the names of four other people, too, for a total of six votes in the 2012 presidential election.
And as Weasel Zippers states, voter ID laws are still racist. I guess it is safe to say why we know why Democrats are against voter fraud and voter ID laws, eh?

Maryland Democratic Congressional Candidate Wendy Rosen Quits Race Amid Voter Fraud Allegations … Caught Voting in Two States, Florida & Maryland
VOTER FRAUD …
It appears that voter fraud has caused one of their own to drop out of a Congressional race. Wendy Rosen, a Maryland Democrat Congressional candidate has quit the race against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District amid voter fraud allegations. Hmm, I guess voter fraud does exist. So much for that Democrat narrative that none exists. As stated at the PJ Tatler, kinda hard to say none exists when one of your candidates has to step down because of voter fraud. Of course Democrats will find a way to spin this that this is not real voter fraud.
A Maryland Democratic candidate quit her congressional race Monday after her own party told state officials that she had committed fraud by voting in both Maryland and Florida in recent elections.
Wendy Rosen, a small-business owner running against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District, released a statement saying that “with great regret, and much sorrow” she was resigning from the contest.
“Personal issues have made this the hardest decision that I have had to make,” Rosen said
Rosen’s announcement came the same day the state Democratic party released a letter to state Attorney General Douglas Gansler and state prosecutors reporting the allegations against Rosen.
Letter issued by state Democratic party to state Attorney General Douglas Gansler and state prosecutors reporting the allegations against Rosen.
“The Maryland Democratic Party has discovered that Ms. Rosen has been registered to vote in both Florida and Maryland since at least 2006; that she in fact voted in the 2006 general election both in Florida and Maryland; and that she voted in the presidential preference primaries held in both Florida and Maryland in 2008,” wrote Yvette Lewis, the state party chair. “This information is based on an examination of the voter files from both states. We believe that this is a clear violation of Maryland law and urge the appropriate office to conduct a full investigation.”
Federal Judge Rejects Obama Admin & Holder’s DOJ Request to Stop Florida’s Non-Citizen Voter Purge to Stop Voter Fraud
Wow, didn’t U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle get the Obama memo of Team Reelect Obama as to how they planned to win Florida? Another blow to President Barack Obama and Attorney Eric Holder.
Finally some common sense in the ruling of whether the state of Florida should stop the purge their voter rolls of non-citizens. U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle rejected the DOJ’s restraining order. Judge Hinkle stated that the 90 day provision of purging voter rolls pertained to citizens, not non-citizens. What a novel concept, non-US citizens are not allowed to vote. What is Obama to do now? Talk about your bad weeks, it is going to be a toss up as to who might be having a worse week, President Barack Obama or Attorney General Eric Holder.
A federal judge rejected a request from the Obama administration to put an immediate stop to the state’s non-citizen voter purge program.
The Justice Department had asked for a restraining order, arguing that the program attempting to remove 2,600 non-citizens from the voter rolls violated federal voting law that prohibits the systemic removal of voters 90 days before an election.
U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle said that, according to his reading of the law, the 90-day provision did not apply to removing non-citizens from the rolls. But, he also chastised the state, saying there were “some problems” with the way that the program had been carried out.
“Determining citizenship is not as easy as the state would have it,” Hinkle said in a ruling from the bench made about a half hour after arguments concluded. “Questioning someone’s citizenship isn’t as trivial as the state would have it.”

Ultimate Obama Hypocrisy: First Lady Michelle Obama Requires Photo ID for Her Book Signings; However, Dems Against Voter ID Laws
Talk about the ultimate Obama and Left hypocrisy …
The first lady, Michelle Obama, requires a photo ID in order to qualify to get an opportunity to get an autographed book; however, isn’t it the Democrats and the Left that are so against photo ID’s to prove who you are in order to vote? UNREAL. It is the Obama’s that have opposed voter ID laws claiming that it would be unfair to minorities and disenfranchise voters, yet its perfectly OK for Michelle Obama to require a photo ID to get a book signed? So voting is a lesser act than to get a signed Obama book? Sadly, in the Obama’s minds it probably is.
As stated on the blog Obama Foodorama:
On Friday, June 8th, those wishing to attend the event must purchase a copy of the First Lady’s book at the location and leave it at the store, according to the employee. At the same time, customers must also submit their social security number and show an official photo ID (driver’s license, passport) to a Secret Service agent, and they will be issued a wristband to the First Lady’s event on June 12.
The liberal media, particularly Obama-boosting cable network MSNBC has done its best to attack voter ID laws as discriminatory at best and racist at worst.
Just curious, where is the liberal MSM stating the Obama’s obvious hypocrisy? The Lonely Conservative adds a rather interesting nugget, “… it looks like people have to purchase the book before being screened by the Secret Service, even though there’s no guarantee they’ll get their books signed.”
Obama Admin uses the race card again …
Ahead of the Christmas holiday, Obama’s DOJ rejects South Carolinian’s voter ID law under the cloak of darkness. COWARDS! What else would we expect from these people? Document dumps on a holiday weekend and playing the race card, for the Obama Administrations they go together like peas and carrots. These people will do anything to keep such an event from the news cycle. Especially as Weasel Zippers opines, consider the fact that polls show 70% support voter ID laws. Once again the Obama Admin will be taking on a “Red” state government.
What, me use the race card …
The Obama administration entered the fierce national debate over voting rights, rejecting South Carolina’s new law requiring photo identification at the polls and saying it discriminated against minority voters.
Friday’s decision by the Justice Department could heighten political tensions over eight state voter ID statutes passed this year, which critics say could hurt turnout among minorities and others who helped elect President Obama in 2008. Conservatives and other supporters say the tighter laws are needed to combat voter fraud.
In its first decision on the laws, Justice’s Civil Rights Division said South Carolina’s statute is discriminatory because its registered minority voters are nearly 20 percent more likely than whites to lack a state-issued photo ID.
Please, spare us the BS. In a post 9-11 world, we have to show picture ID at the airport, is that discriminatory? We have to show it to the police, is that discriminatory. When you are on a cruise ship or train, you are asked to show ID. When you get a drivers license you must show ID. Oops, looks like I forgot a couple more. Thanks to the Lonely Conservative, she ads to the list of photo ID requirements, purchasing alcohol or cigarettes, entering a state or federal building or cashing a check. HOW DISCRIMINATORY!!! So something as important as voting doesn’t require that we ensure the sanctity of the process. REALLY? You mean Atty General Holder and Barack Obama are not concerned about voter fraud? From the people who did nothing against the Black Panthers in their voter intimidation case … say it isn’t so.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is correct in calling the actions of the DOJ outrageous.Presently, the SC voter ID law requires and individual to show one of five forms of photo identification.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called the federal action “outrageous,” adding that “we plan to look at every possible option to get this terrible, clearly political decision overturned so we can protect the integrity of our electoral process.”
The Republican-led legislature passed the law earlier this year, and proponents said the identification requirement is needed to ensure balloting is free from fraud. Civil rights groups say the law threatens to infringe on the rights of voters who don’t have driver’s licenses and may not have the means to pay for documentation to get state-issued IDs.
