I'm going to keep putting up this video until Pennsylvania ditches their awful Voter ID law. It's one of the worst in the nation and the DOJ is now investigating it under the Voting Rights Act.

As well they should, especially given the state's response to the DOJ's inquiry. Note well this section:

There have been no investigations or prosecutions of in-person voter fraud in Pennsylvania; and the parties do not have direct personal knowledge of any such investigations or prosecutions in other states,” the statement reads.

According to the agreement, the state “will not offer any evidence in this action that in-person voter fraud has in fact occurred in Pennsylvania and elsewhere,” nor will it “offer argument or evidence that in-person voter fraud is likely to occur in November 2012 in the absence of the Photo ID law.”

No investigations. No prosecutions. Not even one. As has been said over and over and over, Voter ID is a solution without a problem, and so now Pennsylvania has passed a Voter ID law which could bar as many as 700,000 legal voters from casting a ballot. Seven. Hundred. Thousand.

As you reflect on that, you should hear the echo of Turzai's raspy voice saying "...which is going to allow Gov. Romney to win...which is going to allow Gov. Romney to win...which is going to allow Gov. Romney to win...done...done...done..."

Can you help us out?
