    6 States have laws requiring positive picture ID, 2 more are being challenged by the DOJ. Can someone explain how if 6 States already have ID laws how the DOJ can claim discrimination against the 2 new States?

    7 more States require positive ID but it can include means other then photo ID,

    16 more States have ID requirements but do not require photo IDs. That leaves DC and 19 States with out ID requirements.

    The fact is ID requirements are more prevalent then not.

    ENFORCED to the limit in my area of Florida, a few precincts were short of markers but EVERY ID was examined CAREFULLY.

    So explain how Holder ( for Obama) can claim Texas and South Caroline are being prejudice with strict ID laws when 6 other States have them and have for some time?

    It is actually defective laws being challenged. Florida just came into compliance on another issue; the legislature would not pass a measure giving counties their fair share of the enormous* court fees collected since 2006. The threat of a lawsuit changed their tiny, rigid rightist minds. Texas & SC will find a Constitutional way to make voting as difficult as possible. But they must have well written laws to keep away "undesirables" from the polls.

    *Jeb! cut out revenue sharing, the state still gets a large share of Court, and local government office filing fees, charges. and costs, now 250% higher than when he eased into a chair in Tallahassee. But the state didn't want to send any money back; Jeb! was in Palm Beach & Broward a lot of his eight years as Governor, Scott wants hundreds of millions for "projects" that are being built by his donors. Thus, the counties are being bled to fund more private prisons with substandard COs, and renovations of buildings that are three years old.

    I gave $75.00 last week a to fund set up by some wonderful parents to help poor kids have school supplies; the Bush slashing of revenue sharing left rural counties with strapped school boards that cannot afford to help those from 'homes'* where the parents either have no money, spend it on their own vices, or the kids are bounced from relative to relative. There are lots of half built new buildings though, many have no furniture or other necessary "details" like lockers and seating in the new auditoriums. Jeb!'s boys made their bucks off of construction, NOT fixtures.

    *I use the term loosely.

    I'm not sure, however, I think it's funny that the ACLU and the DOJ keep getting their cases thrown out because they cant find a victem.
