Hoffman: GOP election reform is voter suppression

As we noted at the end of the post below, one of the pieces of the Repubs bill to change state election laws is the ID requirement.

ABJ columnist Steven Huffman cuts to the chase pretty quickly, and good for him for having the spine to call a spade a spade:
Since voter fraud in Ohio is extremely rare, this has accurately been called "a solution in search of a problem." The real goal is voter suppression in Democrat-dominated big cities, where poor, highly mobile residents have trouble with keeping IDs current.
We've also added Hoffman's relatively new blog - Road to Bexley - to our list of 2005-2006 Vote links. (For those unfamiliar with Columbus, Bexley refers to the neighborhood where the Governor's mansion stands.)
