BillLawrenceOnline.Com ^ | 3-8-12

Posted on 03/08/2012 9:20:16 AM PST by Tribune7

The Pennsylvania Senate, yesterday, March 7, passed HB 934 that would require voters to present identification at polling places and in applications for absentee ballots. The vote was 26-23 with all Democrats opposed along with Republicans Stewart Greenleaf of the 12th District, and Mary Jo White of the 21st District, Jane Earll of the 49th District.

Not voting was Republican Jane Orie of the 40th District.

The bill which was introduced March 4, 2011 by Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R-12) passed the state House June 23, 108-88 and had been languishing in the Senate to the dismay of Tea Party and other citizen groups.

I think voter I’d for Penn is much more critical than someplace like Tenn.

How many states now have it?

I can’t see it. OTOH, I couldn’t see a judge overturning the redistricting law the legislature tried.

***************************************************
Well, we all know that there are any number of agendanista, judicial activist Judges in Pennsylvania ready to declare it unconstitutional or at least issue an interim injunction barring its enforcement — just as in Dane County, Wisconsin.

And the “best pal” of these activist judges, the ACLU, is ready to file suit. Their objective, of course, is to prevent voter ID being required in Pennsylvania in this November’s general election. Wouldn’t want to dampen down the number of illegal votes being cast in Philly, would they?

I sent my Senator Kim Ward a thank you email because I sent her enough emails bitching about the Senate sitting on their hands.

She told me several times that the pubbies have a real problem with many rinos that are even more liberal than some demonRATs.

The gubbernator said he will sign it, so it looks like PA will be the next state to be sued by weiner-holder.

Any Republican who would vote against this is just a Democrat with an “R” next to their name.

They are just showing that they favor liberals stealing the elections.

Thank you, Rep. Daryll Metcalfe (R-Cranberry) for being one of the guiding stalwarts to get this pushed through, to say nothing of the challenge to Pellegi (sp?) for his seat this year from the Tea Party folks.

About damn time. Now to spread it across all 57 States!       :^o

require voters to present identification at polling places and in applications for absentee ballots.

This is a major plus, since many states don't have that proviso, as far as I know. Thus, in those states, there is a big Democratic push to get people to vote the absentee ballot.

Honest. Before the vote I heard a Democrat say there has never been an identity fraudulent vote in PA.

It's kind of comical.

Ask yourself why would any reasonable person be against showing ID at a polling place? Giant Supermarket asked to see mine before giving me a store card.

The answer, of course, is that no honest reasonable person would be against it.

Why are the Dems unanimously against it? You can say it's because they are not reasonable. Or you can say it's because they are not honest.

I'm going with the latter.

I have never figured out why anyone would attempt to vote without an ID on hand unless they are being dishonest.
DAA.

Thanks for the ping, Trib!

I'm kind of responding to the idiotic comments (and article) on Philly.com about this, but FWIW:

Democrats keep running this narrative about voter fraud taking place by people showing up at the polls and claiming to be someone else. They say this is so risky that no one will ever do it because the poll worker may say “You're not Joe Jones, I know him and you're not him!” or to discover that Joe Jones had already voted.

Of course that's not how they do it. Anyone with access to a street list knows it's done by turning in fake voter registration applications. Abandoned lots, businesses, non-existent addresses, etc. The democrat machine has access to thousands of these registrations. Now, all you need is a few vans, homeless people/union workers/etc. to go around from polling place to polling place, and you've got, oh... ten thousand additional votes.

I've done street work and marked up a few street lists (in South Philadelphia) and roughly 30% of the registrations were not accurate.

FWIW...

Abandoned lots, businesses, non-existent addresses, etc.

Great point!

And showing a drivers license -- or just a utility bill in his name -- would put a crimp in using this technique.

It amazes me why it took this long to get this bill out of the Senate.
