When Asked, Pennsylvania’s Republican Governor Doesn’t Know What’s in His State’s Voter Suppression Bill

During a July 19 AARP rally for voter-ID education, Brewerytown resident Mark Graham expressed similar frustrations with the law. “It’s too many factors that prohibits a lot of people from voting,” he told PW. “Many of my friends don’t know about the law. I can honestly tell you that.”

Two more people you can count who don’t know about the law: Those tasked with implementing it. Namely, Corbett and Aichele.

Earlier this week, when asked about acceptable forms of ID during a press conference, Corbett didn’t even issue a nonanswer. He said he didn’t know what the law said. “Well, but there are other forms of ID, so I don’t know where people are getting the data as to how many people don’t have because the other forms of ID can be student ID. We’ve been working with the nursing homes to get people new ID. It can be military ID. There’s two or three other forms, right now off the top of my head I don’t have it here in front of me,” he said.
