Bank ‘Activity’ Required For Wisconsin Voter ID

In the state of Wisconsin, you may be denied the ability to vote for lack of sufficient recent “bank activity”. A woman surreptitiously filmed the interactions as her 18-year-old son leaps through hurdle after hurdle in an attempt to get a constitutionally-guaranteed state ID so that he could vote. At the DMV, the pair is told that voter IDs were not issued when voters’ bank accounts did not show enough “activity.” The clerk had no answer when asked what would happen in the case of a resident who was homeless or unemployed, or too poor to maintain the minimum balance required for a checking account.

    No, this is GOOD news.  It means that it’s highly likely there will be an injunction granted to prevent scheduled implementation in 2012 under the Voting Rights Act.

    This is what we call a face man. He is talking out his ass about stuff he doesn’t know about. He works at the DMV if it wasn’t obvious enough. He’s just a schmuck who thinks he knows how the law works and implementing his retarded and illegal version of it. He should be fired for incompetency, but as it’s the DMV they’ll probably reward him with a promotion for it.

  16. Translation: If you’re poor, you probably vote Democratic, so the Koch Brothers want to take away your right to vote.

    A poll tax, is a poll tax, is a poll tax. And it’s ILLEGAL.
