Lenny McAllister Calls It Right on PA Voter ID Law Ruling

In Upcoming Appearances on September 18, 2012 at 3:32 pm


PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Lenny McAllister, Republican strategist and notable commentator, is responding to news of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court voter ID law ruling, nearly a week after standing with voter advocates.

McAllister stood on the steps of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court last Thursday, saying that the law was being implemented hastily and was not in the best interest of voters. Today the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that the law be vacated.

“As I said while standing with the NAACP on Thursday, I believe in voter validation. However, I believe that all voter validation efforts must protect both the citizen’s right to vote and the process of the vote simultaneously,” said McAllister.

“Pennsylvania’s law in its current form overreaches its intended goal by way of flawed legislation and implementation. I welcome future efforts that will encapsulate the need and insightful implementation of voter validation efforts moving onward,” Lenny added.

“Should we vote for Romneyhood?  Or do we vote for a president that continues to ignore the Hood?

The president’s creation of Romneyhood, a…caricature to make the Republican nominee (out as)…a modern-day robber baron…(y)et, have President Obama’s own moves since 2009 made him a well-deserved hero to our communities?

A rising tide lifts all boats…that’s the gist of what we got from the first Black president these 4 years…(w)e heard that a rising tide lifts all boats as well from (other) presidents… The Black community was aghast with disgust with their administrations when they said it. Yet, at least we got great gains by the Black middle class under Reagan and the nation avoided a deep, ongoing recession after the terror attacks of 2001 because of those rascally Bush tax cuts last decade.

The only things rising in our communities (now)…have been unemployment rates, drop out rates, and homicide rates. It’s not what most expected when the first urban president was elected…in 2009.

President Obama has gone out of his way to openly and actively support illegal immigrants…(and) abortionists – yet STILL refuses to speak up regularly (for)…Black America…for 4 years now…”

“America – much like life- provides just enough freedom to permit evil in our imperfect world. There will never be enough legislation to keep us completely safe or provide civic assurances in our nation without fundamentally changing the nation.”
