Wisconsin Republicans have passed a voter ID law to suppress voting by poor and minorities who tend to vote Democratic. And that's not all. Now that the voter ID is in place, Republican-controlled state officials are doing what they can do to make it harder to get the free photo ID cards that allow you to vote. Could they be any more transparent? If they could reinstitute a poll tax, you know they'd do it in a heartbeat. Clarence Thomas would probably go along. Isn't a poll tax originalist thinking, along with partial humanity for slaves?
