She’s had it with outrageous editiorials from them.
Still, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s editorial board used [Judge Tom] Campbell’s ruling to resume the mantra that Georgia’s photo ID law is “partisan bullying” (“Fettered franchise,” @issue, July 14). The editorial consists only of the litany of now-threadbare —- and completely rebutted —- arguments against this common-sense safeguard to protect Georgians’ votes.
The tirade cannot obscure one undeniable fact: Opponents of photo ID have failed to produce even one voter who has been harmed by the requirement, despite nearly three years of scouring the state in search of such an individual. Further, our state’s photo ID law allows voters who arrive at the polls without ID an extra 48 hours to obtain a free photo ID card, and return to their county registrar’s office to have their vote counted. Voters can also choose to cast an absentee ballot by mail without a photo ID. Even U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, who dissented in the recent decision upholding Indiana’s photo ID law, hailed these positive differences in the Georgia law.
