Lou Flanagan: Voter ID … Call Senators Corman, Pileggi, and Leach!
I’ve been calling the majority members of the appropriations committee, requesting that they take HB 934 out of committee and put to an up and down vote.
The woman in Mensch’s office (one of the majority members) said that I was the FIRST call she had in two days in SUPPORT of the bill; she had a dozen yesterday against it. NOT good for our side, that’s for sure!
I’ve tabulated the phone numbers for the officers and Republican members on the Appropriations Committee. (Mark Driver already had some of them in his mailing, but I looked up the others.) They are given below. I’m not sure I would waste my time with the Democrats. Could you do another mailing with information and include the numbers somehow?

Jake Corman about Voter ID
Thanks to Central Montgomery County Tea Party Patriots for this updated info.
Don’t forget to call these people in the PA Senate about HB 934, the Voter ID bill. After passing the PA House, it went to PA State Govt Committee, on which Sen. Corman sits. He voted no, but it passed out of that committee into the Appropriations committee, which Corman chairs! He appears to be stonewalling this bill; it’s sat in his Appropriations committee since Dec 14. Please urge him to vote it out of committee and onto the Senate floor. (After that, we’ll need to urge our PA senators to vote yes. Keep track here and on our Forum).

Sen. Pileggi, who as the Senate Majority Leader, could help push this bill forward. Please encourage him to do so.

“I just called my liberal-extremest Demo state Senator Daylin Leach … about the voter ID house bill 934.
“Unbelievable response from the woman who answered the phone, Ms. Hally Ammons. Very polite but very adamant in saying why Leach is in opposition. We danced around and around and …..
1. Leach opposes the law because it is already a crime to impersonate another voter, and that is the only crime being address in hb934. She doesn’t know if it’s a fed or PA law that is on the books but said she’d find out after several requests. Only 6 people have been charged in PA under existing law. And this law would be a duplication (my word) —- so i asked why not expand HB934 to include other types of voter fraud. [ i do not know if that is the only “crime” this bill would address. ] That leads to #2
2. He wouldn’t expand the law because it would cost too much to implement (this from a spend-till-the-cows-come -home liberal). No $ figure estimated.
3. This law would disenfranchise 700,000 people – no source given for that number. The people to be most likely disenfranchised are the elderly (I am in that bracket), students, “blacks and minorities”. [ I don’t know what proof a person needs to get food stamps, welfare, or anything else. ] She said only a photo i.d. similar to a drivers license would be valid if this law is implemented.
“Truly unbelievable. This guy is not going to be persuaded even if we marched with torches around his home a la Frankenstein.

Talking points – review these before you make your call:
The PA House passed HB 934 on 6/23/2011; it is currently stalled in the Appropriations Committee of the PA Senate. The current version of the bill can be read on this web site.
1) Governor Corbett’s administration has publicly announced its support of HB 934. (reference)
2) HB 934 is modeled after Indiana’s photo ID law, which was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. (reference)
3) Currently, 31 states require some type of ID each time a voter casts a ballot; PA is not one of these 31. (reference and tabulation of states)
4) PA’s current law only requires voters to show ID when voting in a polling place for the first time. (SB 824, Act of Dec. 9, 2002, P.L. 1246, No. 150)
5) It often takes years to remove those who have moved to other locations and also deceased voters from voter rolls. This can contribute to voter fraud. HB 934 will help maintain electoral integrity by preventing the multiple types of voter fraud that have been practiced by organized groups such as ACORN in past elections. Fraudulent votes must not be allowed to nullify legitimate ones.
“Notable Quotable” from Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler), a sponsor of HB934: “Currently in Pennsylvania, it is impossible to board a commercial airplane, cash a paycheck, operate a motor vehicle or even purchase a season pass to an amusement park without displaying valid photo ID. Guaranteeing the integrity of our state’s election process deserves no less than equal protection under the law.”
“Thanks to Jim Brody for this link; it shows the entire bill, with deletions made. Yes, it will put you to sleep, but it’s important that we press our reps in Harrisburg to get this passed without delay.”
