GUEST EDITORIAL VOTER ID'S REQUIRED TO PREVENT FRAUD by Edward P. Shallow It was recently reported there are two million dead people registered to vote in various states. We must not allow another election to be sullied by illegal voting. Consider, the problem, and it has happened in every national election in recent memory is voter fraud and it is real. In many cases, those implicated are members of left-leaning groups run by unions, George Soros, illegal alien activists and in each election, the far left has an army of operatives padding voting rolls. During the 2000 elections, about 5,700 felons voted in Florida. In St. Louis,. election officials discovered that pets and deceased were being registered to vote. There are 34 states requiring voter ID's, several with photo requirements. I mention this fact in view of the Justice Department just filed an objection to Texas voter ID law. Governor Rick Perry stated, "The Obama administra- tion has once more gone too far in its overreach," after the Justice Department objected to the state's new voter photo ID law, saying "Texas failed to demonstrate that the law is not discriminatory by design against Hispanic voters." Texas has a responsibility to ensure elections are fair, beyond reproach and accurately reflect the will of the voters. The DOJ has no valid reason for rejecting this important law, which requires nothing more extensive than the type of photo identification necessary to receive a library card or board an airplane. "Their denial is yet another example of the Obama administration's continu- ing and pervasive federal overreach," Perry said. Texas is the second state to have its voter ID law chal- lenged. The Justice Department already blocked a simi- lar law from taking effect in South Carolina -- the first time a voter ID law was rejected by the department in nearly 20 years. South Carolina sued AG Holder in response, arguing that enforcement of its new law will not disenfranchise any voters. It is vital to note, the Supreme Court's Rebuttal of Voter ID Detractors: The Justice Department's lawsuit against South (Continued on Page 13) Seated, L-R: A1 Vasile, Treasurer Barbara Vasile, Financial Secretary Nancy Martorano, Controller Marnie Martorano and Trustee Joe Martorano.
