→ Voter ID as Voter Suppression

The ACLU has said it is going to appeal the Pennsylvania case, but the foolishness of the lawsuit was amply demonstrated on the day following Simpson’s decision. The lead plaintiff in the case, Viviette Applewhite — who had claimed she did not have an ID and so would not be able to vote — went to a local DMV office and promptly obtained an ID without any problems.

That is one way to solve the “I cannot vote” problem.
