Hillary Clinton’s cronies are banding together to challenge Alabama’s voter ID law. This time, a lawyer who has donated thousands of dollars to Clinton and works alongside former attorney general Eric Holder is part of a new lawsuit challenging the state’s voter Id law.
The lawsuit, filed on Dec. 2, 2015 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama, was submitted on behalf of the Greater Birmingham Ministries and the Alabama State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The suit argues that the state’s voter identification laws are discriminatory in nature against minorities and have “immediately disenfranchised” 280,000 voters within the state.
Really this is the latest in a series of political stunts funded by convicted felon George Soros to fund liberal causes. This lawsuit it is at least the fourth in a series of lawsuits challenging voter ID laws.
The first in a series of lawsuits was filed in Ohio on May 8, 2015. Shortly after, on June 1, a second lawsuit was filed in Wisconsin. A third lawsuit was then filed on June 11 in Virginia.
The initial plans to launch a multi-state push challenging voter ID laws dates back to January 2014 when liberal billionaire George Soros got wind of Elias wanting to file numerous lawsuits across the United States. Soros threw his weight behind the effort, vowing to put at least $5 million into the campaign.
These suits are without merit and are instead efforts to "play the race card" and promote vote fraud. As Alabama's Governor said:
"We will go to people's houses to have their picture made if they don't have a photo ID in the state of Alabama," said Bentley. "We're not ever going to do anything to keep people in the state of Alabama from voting. And for them to jump to a conclusion like that, that is politics at its worst."
