Pa. Republicans Want to Require Voters to Have Photo ID

Republican state lawmakers are renewing their effort to require photo ID at polling places in Pennsylvania.

Governor Rendell vetoed a voter photo ID bill a few years ago but House Republicans, including Representative Mike Turzai of Allegheny County, are re-introducing similar legislation emboldened by a recent US Supreme Court ruling that upheld the rights of states to impose such requirements:

“In a close election, or in any election, there is no room for fraud.”

But ALCU representative Andy Hoover cites studies showing that 11 percent of American citizens do not have government issued identification and that 15 percent of people who make less than $35,000 a year do not have government issued ID:

“So this is an elitist policy that will disenfranchise the poorest among us.”

Meanwhile, Philadelphia House Democrat Babette Josephs is planning legislation that would amend the state constitution to ban a voter photo ID requirement.

Gimme a freakin' break here! It's "elitist" to have a freakin' government issued ID card? How do they cash checks and buy prescription drugs?

Elitist? Here's what you do...make the state dole out non-drivers ID for free, for the "poorest" among us that can't afford one.

This is nothing more than a liberal smoke screen designed to mask the real issue: they are clearly the ones engaging in voter fraud and want it to continue, pure and simple.

Oh, and by the way? All those dead guys in Philly that still vote in every election? Those poor guys have government issued's called a death certificate!


!And here is the rest of it.
