Once again, we have Attorney General Eric Holder in the middle of a mess. This time, he's promising a nationwide examination of voting laws enacted by states - with special concern about laws that require voters to show identification in order to participate in an election. 

Now, the Attorney General, in a high profile speech, says "all citizens should be automatically registered to vote" and is critical of voter ID laws passed in Texas and other states.

What's wrong with requiring voters to present a valid ID?

In a debate on this issue today on FOX News with Megyn Kelly, I argued that there's nothing wrong with confirming a voter's identity in order to cast a ballot. Such a request is reasonable, constitutional, and important in preventing voter fraud. You can watch the interview here.

It seems we have an Attorney General with misplaced priorities.

He won't take responsibility for Operation Fast & Furious, a gun-running program that put U.S. weapons into the hands of Mexican criminals - an ill-conceived program that claimed the life of a U.S. border agent one year ago today.

He won't permit Arizona to protect its borders and citizens with a state illegal immigration law that was challenged by the Justice Department - a case to be heard this spring by the Supreme Court. Now, a new poll suggests most Americans favor a law like Arizona's. And nearly 15,000 Americans already have signed on to our Committee to join our amicus brief to be filed with the high court backing the Arizona law.

Keeping weapons out of the hands of criminals - and defending our border - that should be the priority of Attorney General Holder and the Justice Department. Sadly, it appears that is not the case.
