You may have heard that a Pennsylvania judge blocked enforcement of the voter identification law enacted by the legislature and signed by Republican Gov. Tom Corbett. The law required photo ID cards for voters. With the law’s defeat, you can place the Keystone State in President Barack Obama’s column on Nov. 6. We’re willing to state the obvious: The law in no way disenfranchises any voter; it is an attempt to prevent fraudulent voting, so those opposed to it, well, let’s just say they like a little breathing room when it comes to the definition of “legal voting.” Granted, there’s voter fraud on both sides, but we’re quite curious as to why the Democrats are so opposed to photo IDs. Actually, we know why, and we trust that you do, too.
