What Fresh Hell Is This?

In Case You Missed It...

From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
More than 758,000 registered voters in Pennsylvania do not have photo identification cards from the state Transportation Department, putting their voting rights at risk in the November election, according to data released Tuesday by state election officials.
And, as the OPJ has already noted, Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai admits that the recently passed Voter ID law has one important purpose:
Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania...
How? Back to the Inky:
Philadelphia's top election official, City Commission Chair Stephanie Singer, said the figures reinforced her view that the state's new law was designed to suppress voter turnout in the predominantly Democratic city.
That's how.

And yet, with straight face and stern spine, our GOP overlords declare that the law is supposed to "protect the integrity" of the election process.

Yea, right.

Great blog. My question is: What steps are being taken to stop this. Has th voter ID issue been challenged in a US District Court?
