5,000 non-citizens voted in Colorado in 2010

From The Hill newspaper.

Republicans on the House Administration Committee want to shore up voter registration rules in the wake of a Colorado study that found as many as 5,000 non-citizens in the state took part in last year’s election.

Rep. Gregg Harper (R-Miss.), the panel’s chairman, called the study “a disturbing wake-up call” that should cause every state to review its safeguards to prevent illegal voting.

“We simply cannot have an electoral system that allows thousands of non-citizens to violate the law and vote in our elections. We must do more to protect the integrity of our electoral processes,” Harper added. . . .

I noticed that the discrepancy was discovered by comparing voters to the drivers license database.

Is this going to create another firestorm over requiring voters to show I.D. in order to vote? Will the Democrats once again fight tooth and nail to allow non citizens to vote?

My answer is yes to both questions...
