Welcome to Huckabee did tonight we're coming to -- from our fox bureau in Washington DC.
Early voting is already started in many states and one of the early voters in Chicago was President Obama.
Oh yes he did have to produce a photo ID in order to vote.
So what we understand this if the most recognizable person in the entire United States of America has to show his fellow -- -- Why is it too much to ask that of the rest of us.
I know it's harder for dead people to vote since most of them gave up their driver's licenses and passports but -- Chicago requires photo ID.
Must not be all that much of a voter suppression.
And for those who say hey we -- god no voter for -- go on -- own around him.
Well they must have missed the powerful and disturbing reports filed by our own Eric Shawn.
Whose expose numerous instances of voter fraud and vote buying in multiple states.
In the state where I was governor for ten and a half years -- reported on Hudson talent.
He's -- sitting Democrat state legislator who pleaded guilty to vote buying in a vodka for voting Steve.
It also involved his father a city councilman even a police officer.
Now it must have been bad.
The US attorney appointed by Barack Obama and overseen by Eric Holder filed the charges and got the guilty pleas and of course the resignation.
To make matters worse the defense of mr.
-- was that he thought it was just the way things were done.
That's precisely the problem it has been in many places it's just that people don't usually get caught.
In Virginia this week Patrick around the son of democratic congressman Jim Moran was forced to resign from his father's campaign.
After an undercover video by James O'Keefe showed the young -- trying to aid and -- voter fraud.
By offering suggestions on how to obtain ballots using forge documents.
-- you know I've often joked on the campaign trail that.
It ought to vote early and vote often.
But I'm never meant for some people to take that literally.
A fraudulent vote is a stolen vote it steals a vote from the thin air.
And nullify as the legal and legitimate vote of -- tax -- citizen whose rights to a fair election should not be tampered with.
Winning an election is important.
But winning and honestly.
It is imperative in a constitutional republic.
We expected to be some ballot manipulation and totalitarian countries with dictators like Chavez -- -- -- -- Castro.
We should expect and tolerate nothing less than clean and honest voting in our elections in the United States.
When I go to vote the people of my voting station recognize me even call me by name.
But I still gladly show them my photo ID just in case there is some unlucky chop out there who looks just like me I don't mind.
And the president shows his ID even in his hometown Chicago.
He didn't objecting either.
So let's stop the phony nonsense that requiring an ID disenfranchises.
Voters who are old are black.
Hey I'm getting old and Obama is black.
And it didn't it disenfranchised.
Either one of us so -- -- but not often.
Ought to do it.
