I'm perfectly calm, and I'm glad to see you've retracted your claim that this is anything but an invitation to commit vote fraud by ignoring your reply to my original objection. In your rejoinder, you pretended that the action taken by the commissioners is better than nothing.

No, it isn't. It's a method of rendering the requirement of a law against vote fraud a nullity (or worse) by allowing the premiere perpetrators of vote fraud in the Commonwealth a license to print "voter ID's."

The fact that Corbett has taken no action doesn't change that fact.

But that is a political matter, not a practical one. The practical concern is that election monitors you're placing so much faith in will have nothing to "scrutinize." Republican and third-party lawyers need to be present when these ID's are produced, and have full access to the process. No Judge of Election will be able to challenge fraudulent IDs once issued. Think for a second: How would it even be possible?

The only remedy left is a legal one: to challenge the issuance of a public document by a private party, or, if under public supervision, that does not permit full transparency under PA's sunshine laws.

I’ve retracted nothing, nor have I pretended anything. My words stand as posted.

Of course the law will ultimately decide these matters, up to and including the Voter ID law itself, although at this late date it is highly doubtful that it will do so with any finality before Nov. 6th.
