Idiot GOP members Richard Ross of Wrentham, and Steven Levy of Marlborough, in the Massachusetts House and Senate want to increase regulations to prevent imaginary problems. Theyve filed a dozen bills to require photo IDs for voting but there has never been any voter fraud significant enough to affect the outcome of an election in Massachusetts.
Fortunately our Governor is rational and will veto any of this absolutely silly legislation if it comes to his desk.
Of course most likely what these stupid Republicans want is to disenfranchise minority and elderly voters so they can more easily remove social safety nets.
Ed at Dispatches from the Culture Wars has a good post about this on the national level.
