Wisconsin Governor Walker Signs Voter ID Bill

You can't open a checking account or buy cigarettes, liquor and cold medicine without showing a photo ID. However, you can vote in some states without proof of who you are. I find this shocking, but Democrats don't want to change this. Their motives are highly suspicious. Wisconsin Governor Walker has put an end to this travesty in Wisconsin.
After an eight-year quest by GOP officials, Gov. Scott Walker will sign a bill Wednesday requiring voters to show photo ID at the polls.

But the measure costing more than $7 million in new spending and lost revenue could still face a legal challenge as opponents mulled over the possibility of suing to block it from taking effect.

The legislation will require poll workers to start asking voters for photo IDs for the July 12 state Senate recalls elections, but the voters will not be required to present them until next year's presidential primary.

"Requiring photo identification to vote will go a long way to eliminate the threat of voter fraud," Walker said last week. "If you need an ID to buy cold medicine, it's reasonable to require it to vote."
