Study: At Least 5,000 Non-Citizens Voted in The Last Colorado Election

I personally would guess the total was a lot higher.

A Colorado study that found as many as 5,000 non-citizens in the state took part in last year’s election, and it has gotten some attention from Republicans on the House Administration Committee.

Guess which party they voted for.

Rep. Gregg Harper (R-Miss.), the panel’s chairman, called the study “a disturbing wake-up call” that should cause every state to review its safeguards to prevent illegal voting.“We simply cannot have an electoral system that allows thousands of non-citizens to violate the law and vote in our elections. We must do more to protect the integrity of our electoral processes,” Harper added.

Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler testified before the panel the panel that his department’s study identified nearly 12,000 people who were not citizens but were still registered to vote in Colorado.

What Gessler's department did was to compare voter registration records with the state's driver's licenbse and state issued ID records.

“We know we have a problem here. We don’t know the size of it,” Gessler said . Colorado is apparently looking into a registration system that would allow asking that some people provide proof of their citizenship in writing.

I guarantee you that if they do that, Eric Holder and the Obama Department of Justice will come running and sue them to block it.

A better system would be to demand photo ID at the polling places. The Democrats have been fighting legislation like that for years.

If the problem is this bad in Colorado, imagine how bad it is in Texas, California and New Mexico.

please helps me write more gooder!
