O’Reilly blasts ‘craziness’ over voter ID racism: ‘This is a ruse’
The idea of a photo on your social security card might seem troublesome to some, but it has to be better than nothing. I personally don’t have an issue requiring a photo ID to vote. If this would make it so ID’s are provided fine. Bottom line: DO SOMETHING.

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly castigated liberals warning about the inherent racism of voter ID laws, calling the narrative a “ruse” manufactured by the left-wing “grievance machine” and calling for a national voter ID based on Social Security cards.
O’Reilly was reacting to a new proposal by former President Bill Clinton and former ambassador Andrew Young to add photos to Social Security cards, which would be used to identify voters at polling places. But he first took on the allegation that state politicians working to combat voter fraud are largely animated by racism.
“The left denies any voter fraud, which is absurd,” O’Reilly continued. “Just this month, North Carolina launched a huge investigation into alleged voter fraud. One of the accusations said some folks voted in two states. Also, at least 81 North Carolinians voted in 2013 after they died.”
“Voter IDs would make fraud more difficult, everybody knows that,” he claimed. “But still, the far left objects.”
