Pennsylvania House Debates Voter Identification with Bill 934 - Yahoo! NewsThere's no doubt that photo ID regs would cut deeply into the Democratic Party voter ranks. ACORN was hit with felony charges and fines for registering Democrats from the phone book. President Carter was on a bi-partisan commission in 2004 to reform the process and said that voter photo ID rules were both practical and desirable to ensure the integrity of the process. The Commission on Electoral Reform cited two cases of massive voter fraud in Wisconsin and Washington state where the outcome was decided (after court trials) by voter fraud. Anecdotally, there was a great deal of voter fraud in 2008, I think. Anyway, rounding up skid row ppl and paying them to vote shouldn't be counted as real votes even for Democrats. At the same time, there are incidences of Republicans doing it, too, but less so. The idea is to stop it--otherwise we're just a New Banana Republic (which somtimes I think we're becoming.) ..
