    The recall can't get here soon enough..

    Crooks & LiarsAs if it's not bad enough that Republicans are wrecking what little financial stability we have left with their ridiculous debt-ceiling chicken dance, they're also working hard in the states to disenfranchise voters. In Wisconsin, the preferred method is to require voters to present valid photo identification at the polls. The Voter ID law passed under Scott Walker's watchful eye earlier this year, with all due credit to ALEC for their helpful drafting of the legislation for lazy lawmakers.

    Governor Scott Walker, citing budget squeezes, is closing 10 DMV offices throughout the state. But these aren't just any old DMV offices, no. They're conveniently located in Democratic districts.

    Michael Shatz, a Wisconsin blogger:

    "This story shows just how stupid neoconservatives think the public really is. Walker and his ilk pass a bill requiring voters to present valid photo identification at the polls. Then, in the same breath, Walker and his ilk propose a bill to close the identification issuing centers (the DMV’s) in the Democratic districts, making ID’s more difficult for low-income voters to obtain."

    Background in Georgia - When the law was first proposed, Democrats opposed it for the reasons you guys know. The bill was amended to provide resources for state workers to go to the residences and provide the cards at no cost. Democrats continued to oppose. Wonder why?

    Here is a link and excerpt. Perhaps you gents would care to comment on the errors made by the Georgia Supreme Court in a 6-1 decision.

    Georgia Voter-ID Law Upheld
    March 7, 2011 5:04 P.M.
    By Hans A. von Spakovsky

    The Georgia Supreme Court upheld the state’s photo-ID voting requirement today in a 6–1 vote. The court threw out a challenge that the photo-ID requirement 1) imposed an unauthorized qualification on the fundamental right of registered Georgia voters to vote and 2) denied equal protection by unduly burdening the right to vote under the state’s constitution. .....

    This is nonsense. Any closings you're citing are not decided by walker they are decided by local municipalities and officials.
