Government Accountability Board disenfranchises everybody

The Government Accountability Board decided Tuesday to require local clerks to cross check voter registrations since January 2006. That’s right. The GAB is adopting the Van Hollen standard.

I'm waiting for the rioting and looting to begin because the GAB is standing in the way of people voting. "No cross checking, no peace" or something like that. Perhaps, "Hey hey, ho ho, DOT list checking has got to go." This outrageous decision by the GAB can only have been made with the malicious intent to align with evil forces to keep us from voting. Who's running the GAB behind the scenes? Karl Rove?


Or do you think those that went completely bonkers before the election because JB Van Hollen wanted the GAB to do exactly what they're doing now might owe the attorney general an apology? Maybe before some on the left get themselves get themselves into a rabid frenzy they might want to gain a sense of perspective.

Van Hollen wanted the GAB to actually check to January 2006 as the law required, that was disenfranchising the poor and the elderly. The GAB picked a date twenty months later, that was perfectly wonderful in left-wing la-la land. Before November 4, 2008, cross checking voter registrations would disenfranchise minorities and the elderly. After November 4th, it’s just another bureaucratic decision.

Perhaps the Democrats should ditch the Donkey as their symbol and adopt an outraged contortionist instead.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
