Who Needs Voter ID
While speaking in favor of giving young Milwaukee County residents free copies of their birth certificates for the purpose of getting an ID so they can get a job, Supervisor David Bowen let it be known that 3,373 out of 5,000 free birth certificates originally budgeted in 2012 have gone unused.
That means that only 1,627 people in Milwaukee County took advantage of getting a free birth certificate in order to get a Wisconsin picture ID.
That is great news, but it illustrates how the left has overblown a manageable obstacle and also how poorly both the left and right misplayed an opportunity to get every Wisconsin resident a valid picture ID.
