Obama's veil of secrecy is pierced
Topic - Anastasia Williams
When confronted with opposition to voter-ID laws, Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, asked, "What's the big deal?" Rhode Island state Rep. Anastasia Williams, Democrat, agrees with Mr. Rubio, and is one of the biggest supporters of her state's voter-ID law. The big deal is voter fraud, which Ms. Williams experienced firsthand. She arrived at her polling place in 2006 only to be told that she had already voted. In 2010, she saw a man vote and then return, in different garb, to vote again. Requiring all voters to present a valid ID would help curb such abuses.
Williams said recently that a more extensive curriculum would allow all Rhode Island students to learn about African-Americans' significant contributions to the state.
Joseph Almeida Jr. and Anastasia Williams, say schools should devote more than one month a year to black history.
