Feds back court ban on proof of citizenship for voter registration

In an unusual move, the Obama Administration is backing the issuance of a court injunction blocking a federal official's decision to approve new voter registration forms that allow three states to insist that voters provide copies of documents proving their U.S. citizenship.

In legal papers filed Monday morning, the Justice Department urged U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon to grant a preliminary injunction sought by the League of Women Voters aimed at preventing Kansas, Alabama and Georgia from using so-called "motor voter" forms that require proof of citizenship.

The Justice Department's action is uncommon because the agency represents the defendants targeted in the lawsuit—the federal Election Assistance Commission and its acting executive director Brian Newby. Newby issued a directive on Jan. 29 allowing the three states in question to change the federal forms' instructions to reference to the proof of citizenship requirement.

They're using that same old excuse that people don't have the docs they need to vote.. but they have docs for everything else! What can you do without docs? Open a bank account, get a driver's license, get insurance for cars or even health! You can't do any of this without damn documents. Why is it such a trial for voters to get the documents so they can prove they are eligible to vote? This is just so much bs from the left wingers!

Identification is also used to show proof of a person's age.

Theoretically, a person wouldn't have to provide proof that he/she/it was even old enough to vote without valid ID.

Can of worms.
