SAB On Television: Democrat Operative Attempts To Explain "War On Women" Rhetoric

Last night I was on Valley News Live’s 6:30 Point of View show with Chris Berg opposite Democrat party spokeswoman Rania Batrice. We covered a number of issues, including proposals in Grand Forks and Fargo to outlaw housing/employment discrimination against gays and the North Dakota Democrat Party’s “war on women” rhetoric. The segment was a

North Dakota Indians Suppressing Their Own Vote?

According to some, North Dakota passing a tougher voter ID law was all about suppressing the Native American vote. That’s an accusation made by Melissa Merrick, the Spirit Lake woman who accused Rep. Kevin Cramer of berating her during a closed door meeting (a claim Merrick herself admits hasn’t really been confirmed by anyone else).

Boston Marathon Bombed

Senseless: In addition to thousands of others from around the world, there were 37 North Dakotans running the marathon today. There are already reports of injuries and deaths. The Boston PD is reporting that the explosions are the result of two bombs, with a third suspicious object detonated by bomb squads. If you want to

In North Dakota's Next Election You'll Need An ID To Vote

North Dakota has some of the most lax voting requirements in the nation. There is no voter registration, and to get a ballot you can either have someone else at the polls vouch for you or you can fill out an affidavit which isn’t checked out until well after your ballot has already been counted.

North Dakota Senate Passes Tougher Voter ID Law

The North Dakota Senate today passed HB1332 on a 30-16 vote. The bill would toughen the state’s voter ID laws, requiring an ID to vote (or the ID of someone who is vouching for another voter). According to Democrats, this will disenfranchise legitimate elderly and minority voters to solve a non-existent problem. According to Republicans,

Associated Press: Republicans Pushing Voter ID Laws Because Obama, Democrats Won In 2012

This is an actual passage from an actual, and supposedly objective, Associated Press article: RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Gov. Bob McDonnell has signed legislation into law that will require voters to carry photo identification with them to the polls, starting next year in Virginia. Virginia joins four other states that have strict photo ID requirements

ND House Votes For Stronger Voter ID Law, Kills Democrat Ethics And Transparency Bills

In less than an hour the North Dakota House voted on ten bills related to voting, campaigns and legislative ethics. I’m glad Republicans voted in tougher voter ID laws, and voted to move up campaign disclosure dates, but I think they may have made a real mistake in not approving at least a couple of

North Dakota Won't Get Limit On Time For Absentee Ballots

The ND House voted down HB1238 today, introduced by Rep. Ben Koppelman, which would have limited the distribution of absentee ballots to “no earlier than 20 days before the election.” The bill was voted down on a 30 – 63 vote. Koppelman’s bill was just one of five bills introduced in this legislative by Republicans

Anti-Gun Activists Take Aim At Gun Raffles

Earlier this month a gun raffle being held as a fundraiser for the West Fargo Hockey Club drew national attention when anti-gun activists took note of it (ironically enough, the national attention had the side effect of selling a lot of raffle tickets). Now the West Fargo raffle, along with a similar raffle being held
