See here. So let’s get the pattern straight, as this hits Pennsylvania, and soon Virginia.
1. Republican legislature passes voter identification law making spurious claims about how such a law is necessary to prevent voter fraud.
2. Democrats and good government groups object, arguing the measure is intended to suppress Democratic votes (true), and file lawsuits.
3. Democrats exaggerate the likely effects of the voter identification requirement on voter turnout.
4. Courts split on the legal question, often along the party lines of the judges.
Lovely, isn’t it?
