Proving yet again that he’s out of step with Minnesotans on an important issue, Gov. Dayton staged a mock veto of the Photo ID constitutional amendment that the Minnesota legislature just passed:
In a symbolic gesture, Gov. Mark Dayton on Monday, April 9, vetoed the photo ID bill that the Republican-contolled Legislature sent to him last week.
But the issue will be on the Nov. 6 statewide ballot anyway.
“Although I do not have the power to prevent this unwise and unnecessary constitutional amendment from appearing on the Minnesota ballot in November, the Legislature has sent it to me in the form of a bill,” the DFL governor wrote in a letter to lawmakers. “Thus I am exercising my legal responsibility to either sign or veto the amendment.”
Gov. Dayton, like the vast majority of DFL legislators, opposes legislation that 76% of voters approve of. A mere 18% of Minnesotans oppose Photo ID.
If the DFL is willing to ignore their constituents on this important matter, then they need to be fired this November. Gov. Dayton’s statement that Photo ID is an “unwise and unnecessary constitutional amendment” is pure BS. It’s also poorly timed, considering the fact that this video popped up this morning:
Gov. Dayton apparently is arguing that a total nobody walking into a DC polling station and getting U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s ballot doesn’t mean we need Photo ID. There’s tons of proof that the potential for voter fraud exists.
Just because Gov. Dayton dishonestly insists voter fraud doesn’t exist doesn’t verify his statement as truthful.
The video also shows how easy it is to commit voter fraud in Minnesota, the state Gov. Dayton says has the “best-in-the-nation election system.” With all due respect to Gov. Dayton, the DFL and their corrupt allies, Minnesota’s election system isn’t all that great.
Here’s the list of verifiable proof of voter fraud or potential voter fraud:
Despite this information, Gov. Dayton and SecState Ritchie and the rest of the DFL insist that voter fraud doesn’t exist. They also insist that the potential for voter fraud doesn’t exist either.
That’s BS. So is this:
The governor faults Republicans for not working on election reform in a bipartisan way, saying he was never contacted by the GOP to collaborate on a solution.
The only solution to eliminating voter fraud includes Photo ID. If someone says that “election reform” is possible without Photo ID, they’re either lying, stupid or both.
When a white man can walk into a well-known black man’s DC polling station and get a ballot, it’s understatement to say the opportunity for corruption exists.
If Gov. Dayton wants to deny that, let him argue with the video. Good luck with that, Gov. Dayton.
