View Full Version : Holder requires I.D. but speaks against voter I.D.

Earlier today, Attorney General Eric Holder addressed the NAACP [National] Convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. What did media need in order to attend? That’s right, government issued photo identification (and a second form of identification too!), something both Holder and the NAACP stand firmly against when it comes to voting. Holder’s DOJ is currently suing Texas for “discriminatory” voter ID laws. From the press release:‘All media must present government-issued photo I.D. (such as a driver’s license) as well as valid media credentials. Members of the media must RSVP to receive press credentials at http://action.naacp.org/page/s/registration. For security purposes, media check-in and equipment set up must be completed by 7:45 a.m. CDT for an 8:00 a.m. CDT security sweep. Once the security sweep is completed, additional media equipment will NOT be permitted to enter and swept equipment will NOT be permitted to exit.’

Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) called out Holder for his apparent hypocrisy today while speaking on the House Floor, saying: “Holder is inconsistent. He believes in security and photo IDs for people when he speaks but rejects valid security and IDs for people when they vote.”
