4. You're right. Voter ID laws aren't trying to protect us

from voter fraud, they're trying to defraud the voters.

There are no incidents our repug state government can point to, of prosecuted in-polling place fraud, where someone came in and voted illegally in person, pretending to be another voter. They are a hurdle and poll tax designed by ALEC, to get rid of low-income constituencies, elderly, students, minorities. Turzai openly bragged about the real purpose for enacting the law, on camera. Our doltish 2 term state attorney general prosecuted zero cases of polling place voter impersonation. The repugs liked his job performance so much they made him governor.

A ton of good groups came together to fight the law, to provide legal first aid for the voters, and to safeguard our citizens' right to the franchise. We need a court ruling to overturn this blatant poll tax.

It was a good day for my part of the PA polls, but the Dems lost every Western PA county except Allegheny, in the formerly Democratic stronghold 9 county western under-arm of the 'T'. That freak Rothfus shouldn't even be representing Amway, let alone our state. This erosion is very real, and shows why the repugs keep on visiting our area for presidential campaigning. They're trying to steal the state, here in the western part of the state. They're also driving a red wedge between Ohio and the Blue Northeast - Mid Atlantic, to further consolidate their ongoing attempted theft of Ohio.
