"Rendell promises veto on voter ID bill

By David M. Brown TRIBUNE-REVIEW Tuesday, February 21, 2006

Saying his intent is to protect voting rights, Gov. Ed Rendell vowed Monday in Pittsburgh to veto legislation that would require voters to show identification at the polls.

The announcement wasn't a surprise. Rendell, a Democrat from Philadelphia, had hinted for days that he plans to veto the measure passed last week along partisan lines by the Republican-controlled Legislature.

"At a time in our nation's history when voting is becoming ... less and less prevalent among our people, we should be doing everything in our power to make it easier to vote -- not to make it harder," Rendell said at an event in the Hill District.

Good, this will play right into Swannie's hand as anyone with half a brain won't object to the concept that you have to identify yourself before you can vote.
