“This is a matter of principle. Our Constitution grants, here in Kentucky, the Constitutional right for privacy at the ballot box.” So said Democratic Senate hopeful Alison Lundergan Grimes on Monday, adding, “as Secretary of State, the chief election official, I’m tasked with overseeing and making sure we’re enforcing all of our election laws.”
It all sounds very noble and above board except that the voter whose right to privacy Grimes is guarding so jealously is herself, which makes the whole argument fairly absurd.
The votes that Grimes continues to stonewall over is the ones she cast in 2008 and 2012 on the ballot for U.S. president. She doesn’t want to reveal whether she voted for Barack Obama, whose policies are toxic to Democrats seeking elective office. But a review of the campaign promises outlined at her website reveals that as Senator she would raise the minimum wage and champion equal pay for equal work. These are solidly Democratic ideals.
It would be surprising if Grimes voted for someone other than Obama. Yet, she persists in refusing to say.
