Last week, the NAACP presented the United Nations Human Rights Council with its case against the United States voter ID laws, arguing to the international diplomats that the requirements disenfranchise voters and suppress the minority vote.

According to the report I read, “eight states have passed voter ID laws in the past year, voter ID proposals are pending in 32 states and the Obama administration has recently moved to block South Carolina and Texas from enacting their voter ID measures.”

First of all, I see absolutely nothing wrong with requiring people to have photo IDs before they can vote.   You have to have a photo to fly on an airplane or drive a car.  Really, what’s the big deal?

What really laughable is the fact that the NAACP has gone to the United Nations Human Rights Council with their beef.  Did it know that some members of the Council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote and one of its members, Saudi Arabia, does even allow women to vote?

What a joke!
