    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Raise the curtain.

    Hello, I'm Rick Snyder. And I approve of voter fraud.

    "Hello, I'm Rick Snyder. And I approve of voter fraud."

    Cannot say it any more simpler than that.

    {Details after the fold}.

    In what can accurately be described as a Friday News Dump with the mid-week holiday upon us, Gov. Snyder vetoed a series of bills that would ensure voting integrity by requiring voter identification when obtaining absentee ballots, legally declare that they are US Citizens when voting, place restrictions on third-party groups along with requiring a photo ID when registering to vote.

    Governor Snyder has apparently forgotten the recent shenanigans put forth by groups like ACORN when they signed up notable Floridians M. Mouse & D. Duck (along with the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys) to vote several years ago. An example of their exemplary work is included below.

    Stealing elections is nothing new. Even the people involved in it, like LBJ, just may surprise you. But hey, it could be worse. In Chicago, they were able to channel the dead to get them to vote. In Detroit, the former city clerk managed to pull off the same feat for a number of years herself. In her defense, the current Detroit City Clerk is a 180-degreee opposite of her predecessor (and here), but the governor's veto doesn't certainly make her job any easier despite the League of Women Voters assertions to the contrary.

    The citizenship declaration veto is a real head scratcher.  The governor's press release claims that the governor:

    "...appreciates the issue of ensuring voters are eligible and U.S. citizens, however this legislation could create voter confusion among absentee voters."

    The bill's sponsor, Sen. Darwin Booher, said it best when he was quoted in The Detroit News regarding the veto,

    "What the heck could be confusing about that? If it confuses you if you're a citizen or not, maybe you should check that out."

    My take: If you cannot answer such a simple questions about citizenship, then how can you even hope to be remotely knowledgeable about whom and what to vote for in August and November?

    And finally, the photo ID requirement mystery.

    When I walk into the polling place, I've always thrown either my voter ID card and/or driver's license on the counter for the polling workers to examine before I vote (plus it save me the hassle of answering their questions when I'm filling out the slip for my ballot). Why should AV ballots or registering to vote be any different?

    Opponents will claim that it's already difficult for people to obtain an AV.

    Governor Snyder has adopted AG Eric Holder's assertion that voter fraud doesn't exist whatsoever and that there is nothing to worry about.

    Ummmm, what just happened there again?

    I can tell you from first-hand experience that nothing could be further from the truth. When I voted AV, I went to City Hall, slapped my ID on the counter, filled out a form and walked out without any trouble. Getting an ID isn't difficult in the least. I've taught people to drive cars up to heavy trucks. I'm reasonable familiar with the working of a S.o.S Office. It's really not hard to get an ID legally.

    Unless, of course, you're a community agitator looking for your 15-minutes of fame.

    Or, a Michigan Governor who is hell-bent on antagonizing his base.

    Not something I'd recommend if you want to keep your current job.

    I like the closing statement.

    Rick Snydholm was never from a Conservative base.  Rick is a Schwarz/Milliken Progressive.

    IF the MI-GOP wants to survive in the future, and I see signs that it does with Agema, then the boots need to be on the ground right now to primary this self-funded central planning loser RINO Governerd.  No more Yob bullsh!t playing footsie with Snydholm either.  Pick a side of the fence, and stay loyal to it.

    Anything else is Republican failure.  Might as well have whomever setting policy in this state.

    . . . about a year ago, several states are closing loopholes in voter identification requirements at the polls.  But now, lefty-friendly media outlets (such as the Associated Press) are talking about these laws like it's going to suppress legitimate voter turnout.

    What're the Michigan Constitution's criteria for impeaching the governor?

    Never mind the opening up a bank account, caching a check, boarding an airplane, or buying a beer (just for starters) argument.

    Use this to have fun with your local community <strike>agitator</strike> organizer whenever they bring up their voter "suppression" arguments.
