Can't Vote If Your House Burns Down

The LOWV are suing over the new Wisconsin Voter ID Bill. Of all reasons on how someone can't vote in Wisconsin, this takes the cake
Wisconsin faces voter ID lawsuit from League of Women Voters | Herald Times Reporter | htrnews.com

Kaminski said the requirement sets up the potential that someone whose house burns down and loses all their possessions the night before an election would also lose their ability to vote just because they don't have a photo identification.

"The new law faces an unfair burden on people who do not need a driver's license," she said.

Are you kidding me? You won't be able to vote if your house burns down? Holy cow.

If our house burns down, voting would not be at the top of my to do list!

The League Of Women voters is showing their democrat liberal beliefs. They need to find something else to do. Maybe they can learn how to bake bread, cookies or hey, even bake a cake.

It appears that the (Wisconsin) "League Of Women Voters" is preparing to sue the State of Wisconsin in a challenge against the law which requires voters to have such a photo ID to prove that they are, in fact, citizens and have the right to vote.

Since that law was a core part of the Republican Party's program (And, opposed by the Democrat Party), it might be the case that The League in involved in partisan politics. If, and only if, that is the legal case, then that organization should be required to function under the same laws as govern other political groups AND lose such benefits as come from being an apolitical, non-profit, organization.

I was displeased to note that the cited law allows some to avoid it by declaring religious objections to being photographed. Such laws have been declared null-and-void as to drivers' licenses in a number of jurisdictions. It appears both a matter of violating public policy and a violation of "separation of church and state". Riding my hobby horse, it appears to be a matter of "pimping" to Islamic interests in introducing Sharia like laws into our statutes.
That provision must be removed asap!

James, thanks for commenting.

It seems they have been and always will be playing partisan politics from what I have read and seen about the LOWV.

Have a GREAT week, take care.
