Initially bored by his meeting with the American Legislative Exchange Council, Slim Jim’s head perked up at the mention of new Voter ID laws.
Notes for Canadians:
‘ALEC’s mission statement offers that the organization’s purpose is to advance the principles of free markets, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty, through a partnership between America’s state legislators and concerned members of the private sector, policy experts and the general public … ALEC works to bring state lawmakers and business people together to substantively create policy.’
‘A 2005 Indiana law required all voters casting a ballot in person to present a United States or Indiana photo ID … The District Court and 7th Circuit Court of Appeals both upheld the law. The circuit court was deeply divided, with the dissent characterizing the law as an thinly-veiled attempt to disenfranchise low-incomeDemocratic Party voters.’
