Will Pennsylvania go for Romney or Obama this fall? #2
From today’s Philadelphia Inquirer – a quote from the ACLU about PA Voter ID:
“The best antidote to voter suspicion would be for the commonwealth to publicly acknowledge what it has confessed . . . namely, that in-person voter fraud is nonexistent in Pennsylvania,” wrote lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union’s state branch along with…
… The groups noted that the law was passed earlier this year by the legislature along party lines – Republicans for, Democrats against – and that last month, state House Majority Leader Mike Turzai had told a meeting of fellow Republicans the law would help GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney win Pennsylvania on Nov. 6.
“The only fair inference is that the real purpose of the Photo ID Law is not ensuring the integrity of the electoral process, but ensuring political advantage through the exclusion of qualified voters who are perceived supporters of the opposition,” the attorneys wrote.”
Ooh, that House Majority Leader Mike Turzai let the cat out of the bag. So unless the judges are of the same stripe, I can’t see how they could not overturn this politically motivated unfair law that will disenfranchise about a million voters over a very red herring.
