So we are stuck with this law and the Democrats better get on the stick. I got an email from the PA Democratic Party Today's decision by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson clears the way for the Voter ID bill to take effect. This is not good news for Pennsylvania voters. The Voter ID bill passed by Harrisburg Republicans is an expensive and unnecessary piece of legislation. t's a solution without a problem....We already started an aggressive field plan to make sure PennsylIvanians have the IDs they need to vote in November. Then they asked for money.
Our local Democratic legislator's are quoted in Bill O'Boyle's story in the TL saying they are reaching out to constituents to educate them about the new requirements. Estimates are between 500,000 and 1 million people in Pennsylvania on the voter rolls don't have the proper identification. Getting an acceptable ID is not the easiest thing to do as PBPC documents. PennDOT is just not ready to do this!
The logical thing to do is to phase in the implementation of the law like many other states, like Georgia, did but that is not going to happen.
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has put up a Website, Facebook and Twitter account to help comply with the new law which will sure help the people who can't afford the intertubes or are old enough not to care about it..
The new website has been designed by a Romney fundraiser.
The only way to stop this madness is to elect Democrats to the State House and Senate so they can repeal this law.
Now that that this non-existent problem has been dealt with the Republicans in the legislature can deal with
