From the Inky:

HARRISBURG – State agency officials raised concerns that strict new voter-identification requirements would disenfranchise voters, according to documents presented Monday in Commonwealth Court.

Plaintiffs’ lawyers produced several memos and other documents that showed state officials expressed reservations that legislation to limit the kinds of acceptable IDs for voting might prevent some groups, such as the elderly and disabled, from voting.

Officials with the Department of Aging and the Department of State, which oversees elections, suggested broad options – such as granting all voters over 65 the right to absentee ballots – as a “good solution to ensure that no qualified elector is disenfranchised because of illness [or] disability” that prevented him or her from obtaining proof of identity.

Among other things, this will eventually result in the public hanging of the GOP. Now people know what it means and they won’t have their vote taken away by wealthy white men who hate people who aren’t. People will show up at the polls and dare the party to not allow them to cast a vote while others walk by. And it will be the end of them.

Another avenue not yet discussed much is the potential for poll workers who may just ignore voter id requirements when they know it may block someone who has voted regularly for years. Poll workers, after all, live in the same cities and communities.

In the end the GOP strategy is unworkable. It only inspires others to work toward the exclusion and destruction of the party. It truly is the party of white male pariahs.


And from the neo-Confederacy, North Carolina, today:

Just when you thought the 2013 session of the North Carolina General Assembly had hit rock bottom, itís about to get a hell of a lot worse. Click here to see the worse-than-anyone-would-have-ever-imagined voter suppression bill that has emerged in the state Senate. The new 57 page proposal will be heard this afternoon at 2:00 pm in the Senate Rules Committee.

According to good government advocates who have gotten a chance to examine the proposal after obtaining a copy last night, the bill includes dozens of disastrous provisions …

One of the proposed measures are particularly poisonous, patently for the enabling of the citizens of WhiteManistan to disempower all others:

[a] voter can be challenged by any registered voter of the county rather than the precinct

That’s called a straight invitation to a brawl, the GOP’s way of waging its cold Civil War 2 out in the counties.

    Yes, was just getting to it and you beat me here. I deleted one of them, they were both caught up in the spam trap although that shouldn’t occur again since the rules allow for someone approved to go right through.

    The Morning Call newspaper, where I worked many years ago, has a piece and they set the fire, I think.

    What he’s doing would have the feds on him at once if he weren’t a police chief with a sub machine gun permit. As it is I think they’ll be on him, anyway now. In one of the vids he has a stars & bars patch on his shirt.
