When I read the following in the Jan. 18 Idaho Statesman, I had to shake my head in wonderment at the lack of common sense in todays world:
A (Pennsylvania) judge on Friday struck down a requirement that nearly all of the states 8.2 million voters show photo identification at the polls, saying it imposes an unreasonable burden on the right to vote and that officials failed to demonstrate the need for it.
I am a tax professional. Even I ask for photo IDs from new tax clients, due to the growing problem of identity theft in fraudulent refunds. Yet we cannot ask the same of a person at the voting polls?
To quote a famous person: Beam me up, Scotty.
