Judge Suspends PA Voter ID Law for General Election


How VERY convenient...



BC-US--Voter-ID-Pennsylvania, 2nd Ld,771

Associated Press
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- A judge is postponing Pennsylvania's tough new voter identification requirement, ordering that it not be enforced in the presidential election.
Tuesday's ruling comes just five weeks before the election. An appeal is possible. The 6-month-old law requires each voter to show a valid photo ID.
Democrats and groups including the AARP and NAACP mounted a furious opposition to a law Republicans say is necessary to prevent election fraud. Critics have accused Republicans of using old-fashioned Jim Crow tactics to steal the White House and have highlighted stories of registered voters struggling to get a state photo ID.
The law was already a partisan lightning rod when a top Republican lawmaker boasted that it'd allow GOP nominee Mitt Romney to beat Democratic President Barack Obama in Pennsylvania.

Meh.

Klansmen will be posted at polling sites with burning crosses to ensure vote fraud doesn't occur.

They wanted to take my picture, I told them no, and they wouldn't give me an ID!

This country is done. People have no problem with openly working to steal elections, and judges have no problem giving their thumbs up to such efforts.

Someone turn out the lights when they leave...

I wonder if that is an accurate quote.

They make it seem like you have to trek hundreds of miles and spend thousands of dollars to obtain Identification...and it is something that only the elite in America have access too

Soft bigotry and entitlement mentality

Young, poor and elderly voters are too stupid to get ID's?

How does an ID disenfranchise voters? It is the worst argument I have ever heard. How do we survive as a country if 3 large portions of our society are too incapable of getting an appropriate ID to vote?

Actually that's a good point. If so many people are too lazy, stupid, incapable, etc to obtain a simple form of ID, our country is screwed either way.

Need a photo ID or more than one proof of identity to:

Apply for food stamps, welfare, unemployment, other gov't benefits
Go to a doctor
Go to a hospital
Buy cigarettes or liquor
Get into a club that serves alcohol
Play Little League baseball, football, etc.
Fly
Write a check
Get AARP discounts at movie theaters, etc.
Take a cruise
Take a tour of the White House, Supreme Court, etc.
Go to see Obama or Holder speak, or any other high-ranking official

Oh, and to go into one of those storefront tax services and get some EIC "free money" every year.

This list is just off the top of my head. In fact, I can't think of any important transactions that don't require ID, except one of the most important rights/privileges in the country: voting. Seems requiring one for that would make life easier for the few who don't have an ID, not harder.

How do you even survive in this country without some sort of photo ID? I once had to show photo ID to *deposit* a check into my own account. How are these people with no ID getting anything done?

There is a voter ID law in MS. This is a very rural state and there was limited opposition to it. I assume no opposition was due to the conservative presence in the state; that is, it's red all the way.

However, here is an example of something interesting. Hospital had some FEDERAL changes that required all patients who were going to do any form of contract work as part of their rehabilitation program to get state-issued, photo ID's. These are long-term, mentally ill folks who live on a hospital campus. It took about 30 minutes to get one.

This is ALL such bull shite.
