Why We In Ohio NEED HB 159 (Voter ID Bill) Desperately
The Republican-controlled Ohio Legislature took 8 days to pass HB 159, the bill requiring a State-issued photo ID in order to vote. And it's a good thing they did, because we're facing a very dire problem here in Ohio. What's the problem you ask? ELECTION FRAUD!!! (Cue ominous music: Dun, dun, dunnnnnnnnnn!!!)
How bad is the problem? Just take a look at these sobering statistics and then tell me you won't be waking up in the middle of the night screaming from now on.
Since 2002, the State of Ohio has documented a total of FOUR incidents in which people showed up to the polls and attempted to cast a vote fraudulently! And that's in elections in which 9 million votes were cast! That means that if those people had been allowed to cast ballots, fraudulent votes would have accounted for 0.0004% of the vote!!! Good luck getting to sleep tonight with that little piece of information rolling around in your brain.
So you can see why the Republicans stepped up and took this bill so seriously. This is a dire, dire problem facing us here in Ohio, and I applaud the Republican Party for solving the REALLY pressing problems facing our State right now. Kudos, folks!!!

..........and just pass the legislation they REALLY want to pass. You know, the bill that makes it a felony to vote for a non-Republican. That's where all this namby-pamby pussy-footing is heading. Just outlaw the Party out of power and be done with it.
