Needle on Hypocrisy-Meter Breaks Off: Unions require photo IDs to vote in their elections

Home - by - December 12, 2011 - 21:30 America/New_York - 14 Comments

From Doug Ross -

Gee, I guess the unions are raaacist.

[Via] John Romano at “Yes, But, However!” at the link. He asks the perplexing question of why do Democrats so fear voter ID? Apparently even unions don’t see the requirement of a photo ID as too burdensome.

“A picture is worth a thousand words. According to OpenSecrets.org unions belonging to the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) have donated over $26 million to Democratic candidates and causes since 1990. During that same period, the union gave a paltry $272,311 to the Republican Party.

As you’ll note in the photo below the union requires its own members to produce a photo ID in order to vote. The photo shows a union worker voting earlier today on whether to sanction a new four-year contract with Boeing, clearly the union understands the need for a picture ID in order to help guarantee a clean election:

In America, one needs an ID to vote in a union election, buy liquor, drive a car, board an airplane, use a credit card and a slew of other things in our society. Yet, the Democratic party refuses to back the idea of requiring an ID to vote in state and federal elections under any circumstances. A sensible voter ID law that respects the rights of the poor, elderly, and minorities is a great idea. What are Democrats afraid of? You connect the dots.

    We all know the simple answer:
    Without voter fraud there would be no Democratic Party. It’s no joke. It’s pathetically true.

    I swear, there’s a part of the brain that detects hypocrisy which acts as a valve to stop you from engaging in it. This part of the brain is absent in liberals.

    lol!

    A buddy of mine called me a couple times on a hard deadline to stop by the teamster hall and spot his dues.

    They only accept the dues in person from behind a bullet proof glass window.

    ???

    Great people to work for.

    I wonder what would happen if you cheated in a union vote?

    @Dale — If you are the choice of the members, you get Hoffa’d. If you are the choice of organized crime, you will take office over the objections of the members.

    How can anyone argue against voter ID pics with a straight face? In a society where we are photographed everytime we shop, bank, or visit any public venue, where cameras in phones make things like PeopleofWalmart a daily chuckle. And progs think that requiring someone to show proof that they are who they are by producing a picture of themselves will discourage a person from voting?
    Get real if you have an issue with your pic being taken go crawl under a rock and stay there.

    Under Walker you are stopping 100,000 people from voting, costing $6 million to prevent 6 people from voting illegally.

    We know what this is really about
