Well said, by Tom Ferrick, Jr, of the Philadelphia Inquirer
“Consider the case of Pennsylvania’s House Bill 1318, titled the Voter
Protection Act of 2006. It has the stated intent of ensuring voters the right to
access to polls by eliminating fraud, intimidation and identity theft.
So many noble words, employed in an insidious cause.
HB1318 is, plain and simple, a mechanism to suppress voter turnout,
particularly in big cities, especially among poor, minority and elderly voters.
It seeks to make the act of voting more difficult than ever.”
