E. J. Dionne Thinks Making People Prove Who They Say They Are Is Election Rigging
Yes, you read that right. To EJD, asking people for a piece of photo ID… which I have to do every time I check into a hotel–which, by the way, is where I was this weekend, a little “mental health” getaway–is tantamount to rigging the election.
The laws in question include requiring voter identification cards at the polls, limiting the time of early voting, ending same-day registration and making it difficult for groups to register new voters.
Oh, the horrors! Making sure that the person voting under the name John Smith is really John Smith and not Dan Green! Keeping people from registering the day of the election with names conveniently copied off the headstones at the local cemetery! And–gasp–limiting early voting, making it harder for people to vote twice, thrice, or even four times for our beloved Secular Savior Barack! How ever will our nation survive?
