Eric Holder and Obama are messing with Texas . . . again. They have to. They just can’t have a Red state shining so brightly. Eric Holder and the Justice Department have knocked down the Texas Voter ID Law, passed last May. It may be safe for the dead to vote at least in one more election. Justice, Holder style.
You can’t get a library card without an ID but show up with a wink and a nod and you can vote Democrat in Texas. Hell, every Jose in Hidalgo who can swim, can vote. No disrespect intended, just in case my son-in-law, Jose, might be looking in.

A photo ID requirement for voters in Texas could disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of registered Hispanics, the Justice Department declared Monday in its latest move against Republican-led voting changes in many states that have drawn protests from minorities, poor people and students.
The Justice objection means that now a federal court in Washington will decide whether Texas, as well as South Carolina, will be allowed to enforce its new voter photo ID requirements. Justice’s move merely blocked a Texas law until the court rules.
Other states have similar laws and more are moving toward them as advocates portray the restrictions as needed to combat voter fraud.
The Justice Department conveyed its objection in a letter to Texas officials that was also filed in the U.S. District Court case in Washington between Texas and the department. Justice said Hispanic voters in Texas are at least 50 percent more likely and possibly more than twice as likely as non-Hispanic voters to lack a driver’s license or a personal state-issued photo ID, which the Texas law requires.
Well, shoot, isn’t life a beach? It’s so hard to get an ID. I can’t even imagine a reason Hispanics wouldn’t have an ID or drivers license. Whatever could it be?
The Justice Department and lefty operative pals insult Hispanics by saying they can not find a way to get a proper ID. It’s more of the same government plantation soft bigotry that Democrats seek to use to their electoral advantage. It may be news to Eric Holder but Hispanics support Voter ID.
