What requires ABSOLUTELY NO IDENTIFICATION WHATSOEVER ?
VOTING DOES NOT, in fact it is AGAINST the LAW to ASK for IDENTIFICATION for VOTING or even VOTER REGISTRATION...
You can even do it via the mail, as many times as you like with as many different names as you like, WITH NO ID WHATSOEVER. Then you will receive an ABSENTEE BALLOT. Of course it is a FELONY to do so, but since no ID is required, in fact cannot be, it happens, and in an organized fashion! It is disgusting.
That's right, AGAINST the LAW to ask for ID for Voter registration !!! Of course I dont like ID to begin with, but why no ID for this, but you need ID to rent a friggin film at BLOCKBUSTER !!!!
But many counties require IDENTIFICATION to register your DOG !!
Thats right, you need ID to register your DOG !!! But your dog does not need ID to VOTE !!! That's right, many dogs have voted, elephants too !! A donkey and an elephant at a zoo, registered and voted in a past election. In fact the ENTIRE FICTIONAL CREW of the StarShip Enterprise was registered to vote.
In Houston, at every MailBoxEtc and other similar outfits studied, at least a DOZEN voters at EACH outfit are registered there. Except when you knock on their door, no one answers !
Similar trends exist nationwide.
In New York county, over 28 pages of names of people registered more than once. And these were all at the same address !!
There were millions of other cases and nationwide !
November 1, 1998, 60 MINUTES aired a segment on VOTER FRAUD that was shall we say not surprising to us, but their frankness was...

State wants Pine Cone prosecuted for voter fraud investigation
(Click to return to headlines)
'Fake voter' story to be aired on '60 Minutes'
PINE CONE STAFF REPORT
SECRETARY OF STATE Bill Jones this week asked Monterey County District Attorney Dean Flippo to prosecute Carmel Pine Cone publishers Kirstie Wilde and Paul Miller for voter fraud.
Earlier this year, The Pine Cone registered a fictitious person, "Sandra L. Klaus," as part of a series of news articles on California's lax voter laws.
Jones' decision to seek prosecution came as the CBS News program "60 Minutes" was completing its own investigation of voter fraud in California, including an extensive look at The Pine Cone's controversial story.
Correspondent Steve Kroft, producer Richard Greenberg and associate producer Anne Giordano flew to Monterey from New York last week. They, and two California-based videotape crews, spent two days in Carmel preparing the report, including a lengthy interview with Miller.
According to CBS News, Kroft's story will be aired on "60 Minutes" this Sunday, Nov. 1 [locally at 7 p.m. on KION-TV, channel 46 (cable channel 5)].
The fictitious "Sandi Klaus" was registered by The Pine Cone just before last April's municipal elections. Even though she didn't exist, "Ms. Klaus" became a registered voter and received an absentee ballot after two simple forms were mailed to the Monterey County Elections Office by The Pine Cone.
On April 10, a front page story in The Pine Cone headlined "Voter Fraud: Simple as 1, 2, 3" revealed that the fake person had been registered to vote.
Under California law, the story explained, registering to vote requires only that individuals give a name and an address and declare that they are eligible to vote.
They will then be entered on the rolls and sent a form at whatever mailing address they specify, even if it's a P.O. box in another state or another country asking if they would like to vote absentee. If they say yes, a ballot is then sent to that address.
The entire process can be conducted by mail without the voter ever being asked to provide evidence of their true identity. Elections officials make no attempt to verify the eligibility or even the existence of people submitting voter registration forms.
"Most people are shocked when they find out how easy it is for anyone to vote three or four times in California, simply by making up a couple of extra names," Wilde said.
"The State of California has decided to send a ballot to anyone who asks for it, without checking the person's ID, or even that they are a real person," Miller said.
"It's the best under-reported story in the nation," Kroft said as he and his crew finished videotaping at the Pine Cone offices October 22.
Carmel has had many close elections and allegations of voter fraud have been rampant. "We've complained to the District Attorney for years, and he never does anything about it," one city official said.
"60 Minutes" decided to do the story after 16,000 fraudulent voter registration cards were discovered in Los Angeles County in early October. According to the Los Angeles Times, the cards in many cases bearing the names of people who didn't exist were submitted as part of a state-wide voter registration drive conducted by the California Democratic Party.
Kroft interviewed Assemblyman Fred Keeley, Jones and other experts on voting laws for the "60 Minutes" story.
Requests for reform
Since becoming Secretary of State four years ago, Jones has repeatedly expressed his frustration at California's "anything goes" system, and has asked the legislature to tighten California's voting laws by requiring prospective voters to provide their Social Security or driver's license number on their voter registration card.
But the legislature, claiming that any ID re-quirement would discourage people from voting, has re-fused.
Meanwhile, Jones' office investigated The Pine Cone for committing "voter fraud" by registering a fictitious person.
Robert Ciaramella, a Senior Fraud Investigator for the Secretary of State's office in Sacramento, visited the Pine Office offices unannounced on October 15. He showed Wilde and Miller copies of a voter registration form bearing the name "Sandra L. Klaus" and asked Miller and Wilde if they had filled it out.
They said, "of course we did."
"We made a front page story out of it in our newspaper, explaining exactly what we had done, and why we did it," Wilde told the investigator.
"'Sandi Klaus' could have voted in every election for the next 50 years, and that's something the public needs to know about," Miller said.
The form submitted by The Pine Cone included a declaration, signed "under penalty of perjury" by "Sandi Klaus" that the information on the form was "true and correct."
Jones' office apparently concluded that by falsely signing that declaration for whatever purpose Wilde and Miller had committed a crime.
Miller, winner of two Emmys for outstanding journalism during his years as a producer with NBC, disagreed. "The legislature is grossly abusing its power by putting such a laughably lax voting system in place, and we were simply doing our job by reporting this to the public," he said.
Wilde, who has won nearly two dozen awards for outstanding reporting during her career, also defended the story. "Are we supposed to trust the government to let the public know what it is doing wrong?" she asked.
The Carmel Pine Cone has been published since 1915. Wilde and Miller have owned the paper since early 1997. This year, The Pine Cone was named the best small-town weekly in the state by the California Newspaper Publishers Association.
The D.A. did not respond to calls asking whether he would file charges in the case.
Plenty of attention
Kroft called it "amazing" that Californians can register and vote without ever showing any ID.
"You mean I could go to the polls, say I'm so-and-so, and vote in their place?" Kroft asked during his interview with Miller.
Miller explained that pretending to be somebody else at the polls is certainly possible, since no ID is required there. "But a lot of people would hesitate to pretend they're somebody else in front of everybody at the polling place. The really dangerous part about California's system is that you can simply ask for an absentee ballot without giving any reason, and commit voter fraud from the comfort and safety of your own living room," he said.
While he was at the Pine Cone office, the fraud investigator from the Secretary of State's office acknowledged that it wouldn't be difficult for someone to vote in all 58 California counties.
The Pine Cone's investigation revealed that not only is there no effort made to verify the truthfulness of any of the information supplied by persons registering to vote, there also is no cross-checking for duplicate registrations among counties unless a voter declares that he or she is registered in two places.
California's lax voting system will get plenty of attention on "60 Minutes," the nation's premier news magazine program. Last week, it had the fourth-highest rating of any television program in the country.
The Carmel Pine Cone is published every Friday in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
