Can someone please enlighten me as to why the Justice Department is so vehemently opposed to various states enacting voting laws requiring photo IDs? I know it certainly can't be because the Justice Department wants to enable voter fraud, or at least make it easier. Can it? In addition to the obvious drivers license as valid ID, most states provide a free or very low cost state photo ID availability. So explain to me, please, how this requirement would discriminate against (Democratic) voters. P.S. Of course, this would make it harder for dead people to vote in Chicago, but I'm sure they would find a way around it.
