Obama Checks IDs At Campaign Events

JT For Political Reform 2012/06/17 11:12:37

At Barack Obama’s campaign event yesterday, attendees were asked to
bring photo ID in order to get in to see the President. Apparently
they’ve faced issues of “fraud” – people showing up who aren’t actually
supporters of the President.

Jessica Kershaw, the Obama
campaign’s Ohio Press Secretary, confirmed in a statement to BuzzFeed
that the campaign checked every supporter’s identification at the door.

“We checked every ID at the door to make sure it matched with the name
on the ticket that supporters filled out,” she said. “We did this for
every person who came in.”

The Obama campaign has faced
infiltrators from the Romney campaign, which has deployed aides and
volunteers to blend in with supporters and attend Obama events.

Republicans point out that while they check IDs for their supporters,
the Obama administration opposes efforts to require identification at
polling places on election day — so called voter ID laws — arguing they
are discriminatory.

    Well isn't this a funny development. According to all of the things liberals on SH have previously said, this means 0bama is attempting to disenfranchise his own supporters!

    I just love it how this man continually proves he's a hypocrite and yet there are loads of people who still don't see it. ID's required to attend his fundraisers to ensure they're who they say they are -- $$$ speaks loudly here -- and yet it's not important to check ID's for people on election day. Hmmmm. Methinks there's a stinker in the pot here.

    Perfect! For some dumb reason, the word "stinker" really, really fits here. I find that funny because there are soooo many adjectives I can attach to this man and yet "stinker" is so perfect. Hmmm, am I getting soft here? Yay, maybe that means we're winning and I'm suffering from "sympathy for the defeated syndrome." Ahhh, now that's a pleasant thought.

    Of course you need an ID to get that close to the President--any President.

    But why wouldn't you need an ID to vote?

    Unless some people still want to vote the cemetery.

    Funny, the Obama administration doesn't want picture ID at the polls but they want to have picture ID at their campaign events. Hypocrite.
