They're Kidding, Right...

From today's Des Moines Register Editorial on voter ID legislation:

It's important to prevent fraud, but legitimate voters must not lose their voting rights in the process. The House bill risks making voting harder for poor Americans who might not be able to afford photo IDs.
Yeah, right. Requiring a photo ID is really a sinister right-wing poll tax.

What amazingly reflexive, reactionary idiots.

I'll bet the poorest of the poor have proper ID when receiving government services, and doing any of the other things (like buying cigarettes or beer for example)that people do.

The only reason to oppose IDs is the promotion of fraud-through one of the most disingenous and divisive arguments from the people who specialize in both!

We absolutely must call the Democrats out on this. No one doesn't have an ID, or can't get one if they want.

Dems oppose this because it makes it harder to cheat. There is simply no other reality based reason for their position.

You know, I never did hear how far they got with that gambit... How many states ended up doing the ID thing? Does anyone know?
