- pass one of the strictest voter ID laws in the nation.
- change the BMV rules to make it much harder to get or renew an ID.
voilà! now you can disenfranchise voters and blame it on identity thieves!
surprisingly, the indy star has an editorial this morning about the new BMV rules, and it doesn't even mention the danger of disenfranchisement—it just makes vague references to unspecified "rights" that shouldn't be trampled. did potential disenfranchisement not even occur to the ed board, or did they simply decide not to mention it? ¶
