Excellent Read on MN Voter ID Challenge

From The Brad Blog

Acouple of snips - you really need to read the whole thing

So, when the press reports that as many as 80% of Minnesotans support the proposed MN polling place photo ID restrictions, reporters need look no further than a mirror to understand why.

Groups like the ACLU, the Advancement Project and the League of Women Voters have done a remarkable job in exposing the lie behind polling place photo ID restrictions in our courts. But, given the dismal failure of the corporate-owned MSM to so much as approach its Fourth Estate function of conveying truth to the American people --- coupled with the U.S. Dept. of Justice's unforgivable timidity in taking on new voter suppression laws in states that are not already covered by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act --- the next phase of GOP voter suppression via photo ID ballot initiatives, may prove to be a far greater challenge.
