The Battle Over Voter ID In Indiana
Crooks and Liars‘ John Amato battled Mark W. Smith on radio on the Indiana ID law, the most restrictive ID in the country. Young progressives are mobilizing to urge the Supreme Court to find this law unconstitutional.
“The Indiana case has far-reaching consequences for students and other young people who move frequently, making current ID hard to come by, or who do not possess a driver’s license,” wrote Alexandra Acker, executive director of the Young Democrats of America.
Furthermore, there is no need for this law, so one must question what the real agenda is.
Critics of the law also question their necessity, pointing out that there has never been a documented case of in-person voter fraud in Indiana. A November study from the nonpartisan research institution Demos found that provable instances in other states of voter fraud were very rare.
We’re turning law-abiding citizens into fugitives from the voting system.
