State Rep. Senfronia Thompson is among the Democrat legislators who abandoned their jobs in Texas, but I’m betting she wishes she was back in Texas after my representative in the House, Nancy Mace destroyed her over voter ID which Democrats have unsuccessfully used to smear voting integrity bills.
But, she met her match with Nancy Mace who sliced and diced her and left her on the side of the road.
Mace asked a series of questions that Thompson was unable to answer and when she was given the answers, she was in disbelief. Like all Democrats, Thompson deals in propaganda which often conflicts with facts. It was a brutal beating mace gave her.
Mace started off by bringing up all the things you need to show ID for. There was renting an apartment, opening a bank account, and purchasing alcohol and tobacco products.
Also entering courthouses or federal buildings and possibly the most damning inasmuch as Democrats claim the poor can’t get an ID is that every government program such as food stamps, HUD, HEAP, and Medicaid all require a picture ID. Or do the poor forego these programs because they can’t get an ID?
Next, Mace questioned Thompson on how popular Voter ID is with various groups. She asked Thompson how many Blacks favor voter ID.
Thompson claimed not to know and Mace told her it was 75%. Then she asked about Hispanics and once again Thompson claimed she didn’t know and Mace informed her it was 81%.
Only one group is opposed to Voter ID laws and that is with elected Democrats for obvious reasons.
In fact, I think the Democrats are racist for believing Blacks and Hispanics are incapable of getting themselves a picture ID. To me, that is incredibly racist.
Polls have consistently shown that Mace’s numbers are correct. Voter ID enjoys widespread support across all demographics, with Democrats in office — curiously — the only major opponents of it.
Why would that be?
Through questioning, Mace informs Thompson that Texas ranks 10th in the U.S. in black voter turnout. So it’s not lagging or oppressing the black vote in any way. This has also been true for years, as is the fact that voter ID has led to increases in minority voting rates. I wrote about that for CNN shortly after Texas conducted its first elections under voter ID.
Thompson seems to be unaware that her and her party’s arguments against election integrity bills such as the one they fled Texas to break quorum and slow down evaporated under Mace’s questioning.
