ID OK

April 28th, 2008

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s voter ID law creating breast beating and cloth rending among the usual suspects in Madison:

Rep. Joe Parisi (D-Madison), cialis usa illness a former Dane County clerk, said that while supporters may argue the ruling provides proof that a photo ID requirement is constitutional, no evidence has been produced to show that it wouldn’t be a burden or that eligible voters wouldn’t be turned away.

Baloney.

Indiana provides IDs free of charge to the poor and allows voters who lack photo ID to cast a provisional ballot and then show up within 10 days at their county courthouse to produce identification or otherwise attest to their identity.

There is NOTHING about that that’s an undue burden.

    Your title is a misstatement. It has been allowed by SCOTUS, for now anyway (the actual ruling is a little soft-lots of room for maneurvering). However the court ruled, it’s not OK. Before you offer a rebuttal, think of Roe v. Wade.

    I totally see your point. I’m not sure I’d personally equate having to go get a free photo id to killing babies, but I understand that you don’t share my perspective on that one.

    I wasn’t equating the subjects, but just the actions taken by the court. In both cases, they ruled in ways that many people feel are not “OK”.
