Iowa Senate GOP getting in on the act too - voter ID bill

The Iowa GOP Senators must be figuring that they can't let the GOP members of the Iowa House do all the dumbfuckery, they have to get in on the act too;

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Senate Republicans said Thursday they would introduce legislation requiring that Iowans present photo identification in order to vote.

Senate Minority Leader Bill Dix, R-Shell Rock, said the law would protect the integrity of the voting system.

Existing Iowa law doesn't require voters to show photo identification. Although Democrats note Iowa has little history of voter fraud, Republicans argue the risk remains and identification should be required.

"I think it gives everyone voting full confidence their vote is going to count and that people who are voting are not doing it legally," Dix said.

1. Schultz has spent how many thousands of dollars on investigating "voter fraud"?

And they've made 8 (count 'em---EIGHT---) arrests??

How much apiece is that, BTW?
