On the new Voter ID law passed in PA, Republican House Leader Turzai had the following to say:
“[…] Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”
And if that isn’t enough to convince you, take a look at what the State of Pennsylvania filed in Court today in answer to a challenge of the law by the ACLU and others–PA admits that there is no evidence of voter fraud–NONE. So they made the law up and passed it for what? Why? No answer except to say it was to address voter fraud that didn’t exist. Jim Crow is back and he’s pecked out Uncle Sam’s eyes and is going for the carotid.
Wherever you live in the US, make sure you know what the current voting laws are because you may show up to vote in November and find out that you can’t. In fact MILLIONS of people will be disenfranchised–i.e., not allowed to vote this year as a result of these laws. Don’t wait until it is too late.
Here’s a site that lists all the states that have passed Voter ID laws in the last few years with details about what the changes were: http://www.brennancenter.org/content/resource/voter_id_laws_passed_in_2011/
If you don’t have an ID or someone you know doesn’t have an ID, it’s time to go out and get one because the DOJ isn’t going to be able to challenge the laws in all of the states listed in time to stop this blatant attempt to rig the voting process.
