Skip to comments.Voter ID Challenger “Happy As a Clam” to Get Free ID in Pennsylvania (delicious irony alert)
Posted on 08/21/2012 5:54:23 AM PDT by Kolath
In another victory for voter ID, last week a Pennsylvania district court rejected a challenge to stop the states new voter ID law from going into effect before the upcoming presidential election.
Now the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Viviette Applewhite, the lead plaintiff in the case who claimed that she would be unable to vote because of the new law, has obtained a voter ID.
One day after the new law was upheld, Applewhite used a combination of her Medicare card, a state Department of Public Welfare card, and other documents showing her current address to obtain a free ID.
This latest development highlights the fact that requiring photo ID is not an onerous restriction or a poll tax, as Attorney General Eric Holder has erroneously asserted. Pennsylvanias law will help prevent fraud in elections, and the state has a checkered past when it comes to voter fraud.

I do not see where she had to prove her citizenship in the list of documents used to get a voter ID. Perhaps that is in the full article?
Wonder what ID she used to get her State welfare card. Apparently, it wasn't such an inconvenience to cough up the necessary paperwork for that.
Are the Left telling them it is a poll tax? There hasn’t been a poll tax for years.
If you want on/off the PA Ping List, please freepmail me. Thanks!
The left is telling them that voter ID is worst thing since Pharaoh enslaving the tribes of Judea.
It’s a full court press on the left because voter fraud is a solid 2%-3% gimmie for the dems in certain areas.
How do you assess the emotional state of a bivalve mollusk?
A friend told me she had to use her US passport, her SS card, a utility bill and a notarized letter to get the benefits card, plus about three interviews. That’s in NY.
In the 2008 elections, I remember that the corrupt, stinking Philly craphole voted at 112%-PLUS of registered voters. Same in Pittsburgh and Harrisburg.
I’m no math genius, but it didn’t take even 5secs to figure that scam out. They probably wore out hundreds of buses from NJ to PA. bringing-in dupe voters, and having other unregistered, “disenfranchised”, lowlife, lib-dem dirtbags in PA, vote 2-3-4x. In many polling stations, the lib-dem thugs physically-threatened and ran-off the GOP poll-watchers. The crooked union cops just looked the other way.
“Wonder what ID she used to get her State welfare card. Apparently, it wasn’t such an inconvenience to cough up the necessary paperwork for that.”
My thoughts exactly.
I wonder whose name is on it.
She seemed to have SSN card but it was stolen. What I don’t understand is why she didn’t get a replacement for that one first.
No telling how many polling people filled out ballots too.
John Connolly in his book wrote about Lyndon Johnson sending him down to South Texas to fix the vote.
Because a special interest group didn’t come knocking, asking her to be a poster lady for stolen Social Security cards.
I’ve often stated that the same political party that prides itself
in transporting their voters to the voting booths on election
day could just as easily initiate a campaign to transport folks
to the appropriate state agency which provides IDs. The dirty
little secret is that they know that this would make multiple
voting more problematic.
