From Kay over at Balloon Juice:

Governor Corbett and his political appointees and the Romney bundler he hired to do voter education in Pennsylvania issued a press release with great fanfare on their thrown-together, half-ass attempt to create and issue voter ID’s.

They’ve had months to address this obvious, documented problem but did absolutely nothing until they were sued, but they claim they’re ready now. This morning I called the Pennsylvania voter hotlineto see how well the education effort was going:

Voter ID Hotline at 1-877-VotesPA (868-3772)

I got through the recorded message and hit the button to speak to a person and see if I could ask a specific question or two about how one might get the newly announced voter ID in Pennsylvania. It rang and rang and rang. I let it ring so long the call was disconnected.

Remember how the judge that decided the PA case to not issue an injunction against this law said that PA officials were sincere and capable of educating the hundreds of thousands of voters who might be disenfranchised? Notice how those very same PA officials don’t answer the frigging phone?!?!

    Judge Robert Simpson got conned by the state/is a dimbulb/doesn’t care about voting rights/is politically ambitious (delete according to taste).

    Imagine my surprise.
