Put on your best "Mr Bill" voice: OHHHH NOOOO!
MSNBC has their collective panties in a bunch.
Women add to the list of voters who are potential casualties of disenfranchisement from restrictive voting laws, as reports show that women have an increasingly difficult path to obtaining proper photo ID.
Evidently, when a woman gets married, divorced, or moves...she's not smart enough to make sure her voter registration gets changed. Oh? That happens automatically? oh....
So, if a woman changes her name or address, her voter registration is changed also?
So, the problem is that the name on her state-issued ID no longer matches her voter registration? Yeah, that could be a problem. (In Michigan, the state puts a sticker noting the change right on the back of the ID...problem solved)
But... MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry points out, in an asterisk section at the bottom of the Pennsylvania Department of State Voter ID rules, the requirements reads:
*In this example a voter who recently changed her name by reason of marriage presents a valid Pennsylvania driver's license or Pennsylvania ID card accompanied by a PennDOT update card, which is sufficient to satisfy the requirements of the Voter ID law regarding proof of identification.
OH! MY! GOODNESS!
You mean to say that when you go to get your name or address changed, you get a card that verifies it? WHEN YOU GET YOUR ID CHANGED, YOU GET THE CARD!!!
Even more amazing, the state seems to think that women are smart enough to hang onto that card.
MSNBC, however, doesn't give women that much credit.
