    Stopping voter fraud is the idea.

    @tom

    Yup, yup, closing polling places in minority districts will really cut down on that ol’ voter fraud, yes sir.

    Voting by likely Democratic voters IS the definitions of voter fraud, correct?

    Want to drive a car in the USA? You need a photo I.D. Want to purchase alcohol? You need a photo I.D. Hunt and/or fish? Need a photo I.D. Want to vote for the leaders of the country? HELL NO! You don’t need a photo I.D. Come on over and cast your vote. We don’t really care if you’re illegal or have already voted.

    Here we go, again. Voter ID, a solution in search of a problem, is just one of many weapons in the Republican arsenal to disenfranchise demographic blocs that mostly vote against them. That is a fact. Cue the trolls…

    “Just like showing my ID when I buy postage stamps with my credit card is disenfranchising crooks.”

    I’ve made credit card purchases at the post office. They’ve never asked for my ID.

    Of all the credit card purchases I’ve made, I’ve only ever been asked for my ID once. After verifying my ID over the phone with the bank, the representative explained to me that the card reader was likely dirty and caused the card to appear faked.

    @tom “Stopping voter fraud is the idea.”

    The PA voter ID law was struck down because the state’s own study showed a lack of evidence supporting the idea they have voter fraud.

    “Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done”

    Showing identification to vote. What are you liberals afraid of?

    It’s not like the numbers aren’t known. Voter ID would rule out hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians from voting since they don’t have the ID and can’t easily get it. Mostly Democratic voters. Number of cases of voter impersonation fraud: None ever found. This was voter suppression, pure and simple, and has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with fraud.

    “A Commonwealth Court judge Friday struck down Pennsylvania’s voter-ID law, noting that attorneys for the state had shown nothing but “a vague concern about voter fraud” to justify legislation that could have cost hundreds of thousands of voters the right to cast ballots.
    Judge Bernard McGinley declared the law unconstitutional in a ruling that said about 430,000 registered voters still don’t have the type of identification that would have been needed to vote.
    Attorneys for Gov. Corbett’s administration offered no examples of in-person voter impersonation — the alleged problem that the law was meant to address.
    McGinley also cited a “culture of misinformation” that arose as Corbett’s administration offered conflicting explanations on how the law would be applied.”

    How do you use a Federal ID online? No ID needed. Just a SS#. Since I know mine by heart I didn’t even need the card.

    Notice that the story I printed says “about 430,000 registered voters still don’t have the type of identification that would have been needed to vote.” Evidently not all forms of ID would be sufficient, and thus your objection doesn’t hit the mark. Also note that according to the judge the state offered no examples of in-person voter impersonation. So this requirement seems to be a remedy for a problem which doesn’t exist.

    ‘If someone does not have a drivers license, passport, student ID, etc.,…’
    -
    Student IDs are not allowed in the ALEC legislation. Students are more likely to vote Democratic and therefore are part of ‘voter fraud’.
    -
    I notice that NONE of the Republians/Fox “news” viewers addressed other aspects of voter suppression, e.g. closing polling places in minority districts, limiting voting hours, and purging of voter rolls right before elections.
