Connie Pillich talks HB 159 "Election Fraud" bill

In her piece on, Connie Pillich addresses the real problems behind the recent Election Fraud bill:

The simple truth is that H.B. 159 will unconstitutionally disenfranchise the poor, the elderly and women.

Requiring a specific photo ID violates the rights of some citizens to vote. While you and I may not have a problem obtaining and paying for a driver’s license, state ID or passport, for many this is a costly burden. Poor and working people and the elderly may not have the means to get to the BMV or pay even a small fee. It could mean taking time off from work, compounding the cost. The costs involved in this mandate amount to nothing more than a poll tax.
