Column is up. Here’s the intro:
The right to vote is precious, the politicians preach. Our democracy hangs in the balance, the pundits screech.
Yes, but if we all value the sanctity of the voting process so highly, why is it that I’ve never once been asked to produce identification of any kind in the 16 years I’ve been a voter, from Ohio to California to Washington state to Maryland?
And why is it that we can’t protect our elections from people who have no right to vote, no right to be here, and no right to undermine our safety or sovereignty?
While unhinged Democrats spread fear about the alleged discriminatory disenfranchisement of American citizens, they have supported the indiscriminate enfranchisement of untold numbers of foreign outlaws — including suspected al Qaeda operatives and terrorist sympathizers.
Last week, the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch reported that illegal alien Nuradin Abdi — the suspected shopping mall bomb plotter from Somalia — was registered to vote in the battleground state of Ohio by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a left-wing activist group. Also on the Ohio voting rolls: convicted al Qaeda agent Iyman Faris, who planned to sabotage the Brooklyn Bridge and had entered the country fraudulently from Pakistan on a student visa…
Rest is here.
Update: On a related note, The Sundries Shack rips apart a Washington Post open borders sob story about a shocking scandal…someone’s enforcing immigration laws in Virginia. Scandalous!
Correction: A follow-up article from the Columbus Dispatch reports that Nuradin Abdi was registered to vote in 1999 at an Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, not by ACORN, which I erroneously reported. Wonder how many other terrorists have registered to vote thanks to the Clinton-Gore Motor Voter Law?
