    A new twist in the WI voter ID controversy has some lawmakers and state officials crying foul. Ids are free as part of the law, but an internal memo surfaced which instructs DMV employees not to offer free IDs unless customers ask for them. Otherwise, the IDs cost $28. Critics say the $28 fee amounts to a poll tax which will discourage low-income voters from registering for an ID. Recently, a DMV employee was fired for blasting out an email encouraging his coworkers to ignore the memo and instruct all customers that the IDs are free.

    Great find! I can't believe those bastards aren't out there advertising. Requiring people to go in and ask for their free ID.

    This will be one of the countless bullshit excuses pointed to in 2012 while the left screams the racist Tea Party stole the election form Obama and incites riots nation wide.

    This is hardly surprising. It's hard for me to imagine an objective, informed individual who would fail to come to the conclusion that these types of laws are motivated in part by a desire to discourage likely Democratic voters from voting. I expect that in Wisconsin at least the laws will be reversed eventually.
