The leftwing La Raza Ninth Circuit Court strikes again.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned Arizona’s requirement that people show proof of citizenship to register to vote.
The split decision by a three-judge panel determined that the requirement to show proof of citizenship — passed by voters in 2004 — is not consistent with the National Voter Registration Act.
Associate Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, temporarily sitting by designation, and Circuit Judge Sandra Ikuta, with chief judge Alex Kozinski dissenting, said Prop. 200 creates an additional hurdle, while the national act is intended to reduce “state-imposed obstacles” to registration.
The majority noted that Congress was well aware of the problem of voter fraud when it passed the voter act, and built in sufficient protections, including applying perjury penalties to applicants who lie about their eligibilty.
……Secretary of State Ken Bennett said he does not anticipate that the ruling will make any difference in voting next week, since it wasn’t in place when registration closed Oct. 4.
Bullshit. The DNC, ACORN, and other collaborators, register illegal aliens, fabricated names, and dead people to “make a difference”. They don’t care about the penalties, as evidenced by the lack of prosecution by Obama’s DOJ and the repeated discovery of voter fraud several states.
Wherever you vote, be aware of what’s going on in and around your polling station.
