Getting a photo ID to vote is just too hard for her…

December 15th, 2011

…but she has plenty of time and energy to take the state to court to

fight the voter ID law.

    Don’t you need a photo ID to file a law suit?

    Hope she doesn’t catch a cold… Or want to check a book out of the library, or buy a bottle of wine from Pick-n-Save, or…

    You understand the concept, right? The ACLU only needs to find examples of those disenfranchised by the proposed changes. It doesn’t need to find every one who is disenfranchised, and it doesn’t need to volunteer to fix the problems created by the proposed changes. The Republicans proposed this because they want to disenfranchise a demographic who tends to vote Democratic. They can’t point to any significant level of fraud, and they can’t explain how the new process would prevent fraud.

    I think it would be funny if it turned out she’s a Republican.

    That would be absolutely hilarious!

    To believe her story,, you have to believe she never drove, never opened a bank account, never picked up registered mail, never flew in the past 10 years, never was employed in the past 20-30 years or so, only did business in Brokaw etc.

    Gee, they found a whiner. Whoopy.

    At the risk of inciting yet another sophist or vulgar comment from you all know who…

    I will personally help her get an ID so she can vote. Why doesn’t the NAACP?

  • 8. Elliot  |  December 16th, 2011 at 11:16 am

    She’s actually a white lady, so I’m pretty sure the NAACP will have no interest in helping her.

    Which raises an interesting question: isn’t white a color?

    Dan, have you ever lived in a small town? Sounds perfectly possible to me that she didn’t need an ID.

    And Spice – I think the WisGOP is so driven by their desire to disenfranchise Democrats, they will not admit the possibility they would disenfranchise some Republicans along the way. Voter ID places difficult barriers for some people, period. It affects everyone.

    Yep, John I have. And again, she never drove legally? And I used to live somewhat close to Brokaw. Brokaw has few if any businesses, which means she has to go to Wausau or the “suburbs” like Rib Mountain, Schofield etc. to do business and she would need something there. If she lived like a hermit, maybe it is plausible, but it doesn’t sound like it.

    My first driver’s license didn’t have a pictures on it. Maybe the second, too. Those people who don’t drive… you don’t care if they vote?

  • 12. jimspice  |  December 17th, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Anyone who has ever, through the past 200+ years, voted without presenting voter id is un-American.

    And probably some kind of low-level terrorist ripe for preventative detention.
