Today's Wonkbook at the WashPost zeroes in on voter ID today, and has links to some interesting stories we haven't seen before:
-- The Atlantic looks back on GOP voter fraud efforts (after the passage of the '64 Civil Rights Act/'65 Voting Rights Act) in the late 60s and early 80s
-- The spurt of voting bills in states like Pa, Ohio and Florida make sense in the "47 percent" worldview of party standard bearer Mitt Romney, argues Timothy Noah at the New Republic
-- And as long as we're hitting all the liberal bastions (we'll admit: we haven't been following Socialist Worker this cycle), Elizabeth Drew at the New York Review of Books pulls no punches, comparing the voter ID bills to the crisis of government she covered during Watergate ("But the current voting rights issue is even more serious: it’s a coordinated attempt by a political party to fix the result of a presidential election by restricting the opportunities of members of the opposition party’s constituency—most notably blacks—to exercise a Constitutional right.")
The latest hearing on PA's voter ID bill is tomorrow at 10 a.m. in Commonwealth Court in Harrisburg.
