Laws that require careful verification of a voter's identity discriminate not so much against blacks, Hispanics or other ethnic groups and the poor as against an entire political class -- cheaters. Known also as Democrats.  Polls indicate that as many as 80% of the American public (including many of those said to be injured) favor stringent voter ID laws. The Marxist-Progressive Left, however, behind lamentations and crocodile tears, stands in utter contempt of the righteous public will. Citing a litany of imagined (and therefore real) abuses of helpless 'victims', they howl with feigned outrage. If strawmen, in company with the dead, could vote, Marxists would never lose another election.
