Photo ID Is Disenfranchising?
The Senate immigration bill did not contain Mitch McConnell's suggestion of a picture ID as a requirement in order to cast a vote in federal elections. Somehow such a requirement is an overwhelming burden. This is reported today:
But Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., likened the proposal to a poll tax or a requirement for voters to pass a literacy test. "Now is not the time and this is not the place to consider an amendment that may disenfranchise a million or more poor, minority, disabled, and elderly voters -- all of them American citizens," he said.
Huh? Anyone wish to explain that one?
