The apple sure falls far from the tree in the case of Chelsea Clinton…who appears to lack much of her father’s brains, and her mother’s shrewd criminal behavior.
The slow Chelsea Clinton promoted an article claiming Tufts University and Harvard University researchers can show how voter ID laws are discriminatory using a simple algorithm.
Via The Gateway Pundit…
Can the same math be used to claim photo ID laws for other things such as boarding an airplane, purchasing alcohol or opening a bank account are also discriminatory?
The Democrats know that if strict voter ID laws are passed they will most likely never win an election ever again.
Chelsea Clinton tweeted…
“Math helps show how voter ID laws are discriminating at the polls”:

Even wired.com cautioned Democrats not to inflate the impact of voter ID laws…
Once Hersh and Ansolabehere were confident they had properly matched registered voters to their ID records, they used a commercial tool called Catalist to predict each voter’s race. That tool analyzes names to determine how likely a given name is to be associated with one race or another. It also accounts for the demographics of the Census block where a given voter lives. Using this tool, the researchers confirmed what voting rights advocates already know to be true—that black voters are more likely to lack adequate identification under voter ID laws. According to the study, 3.6 percent of registered white voters had no match in any state or federal ID database. By contrast, 7.5 percent of black registered voters were missing from those databases.
The algorithm shows a clear and disturbing racial disparity on voting rights. But Hersh says that it also shows that voter ID laws affect a relatively small percentage of the population. Across all registered voters in Texas, the researchers found 4.5 percent lack proper identification. For registered voters who actually showed up at the polls in 2012, it’s 1.5 percent.
Hersh says he agrees the public ought to be outraged by racially motivated attempts to suppress the vote, and that courts ought to crack down on the practice. But he cautions against Democrats artificially inflating the impact of voter ID laws in their messaging.
The Gateway Pundit links to a list of 24 things that do require a photo ID (including alcohol, cigarettes and applying for food stamps) and strangely enough, the liberals never cry about any of them. How can you even be a functioning person in society without some form of ID?
As expected, Chelsea got mocked by twitter users…
Liberals: ‘Russia interfered with our election; we need to make sure that never happens again.’
Also liberals: ‘Showing ID at polls to prove you are an American citizen and registered to vote in a certain state is discrimination; we must stop this oppression’ https://t.co/utTHQRyrIi

So you, your mom and your ilk wanna screech about our voting system being egregiously breached by the Russians or whomever, but you oppose a simple measure to make it infinitely more secure….

Either take voting responsibility serious enough to get an ID or don’t vote. Stop demeaning privilege by keeping wild west mentality.

Accepting the statistics of this article, if has nothing to do with discrimination at the polls. For voter ID laws to be discriminatory, you need to prove that agencies that provide valid IDs somehow will not serve a certain group of valid ID seekers. Until then, get an ID!

What ever happened to protecting American citizens. You need ID for everything. Need it to Vote!!! Why wouldn’t anyone have ID? Oh yeah.. Illegal..

✳️ Chelsea: Mexican citizens are required to have government-issued photo ID cards in order to vote in their federal elections. Seems like Dems in U.S. just want non-citizens to be able to vote which is illegal and unfair to citizens. pic.twitter.com/EbKNVbl2I3

Honest people want voter id. If Mexico has one, why can’t we have one as well?
I guess Dems need the votes
