Brave, fearless, patriotic new GOP Suppression Law just prevented a group of elderly nuns from voting

Well the GOP voter purge is coming along swimmingly. A group of elderly nuns are now unable to vote. Sister Gallagher and 23 other nuns from the Our Lady of Peace residence, the retirement home for the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary congregation, lack the identification needed to vote in November. Another 11 nuns recently received state-issued identification cards. One 95-year-old sister had to wait four hours at the Driver Licensing Center. These elderly nuns, represent thousands in their state. Voter ID laws are upheld and sweeping the country, with scant evidence of voter fraud.

The Times-Tribune reports:

The congregation’s peace and justice committee has sent a letter to Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson and the state’s Supreme Court justices, asking them to overturn the law.
The sisters represent “thousands and thousands of elder Pennsylvanians facing a similar exclusion from their lifelong participation in the democratic process. If the Voting Act of 2012 is maintained in the courts, the seniors will have a serious violation of their rights visited upon them. It must not be allowed to stand,” the sisters wrote.
One of the acceptable forms of identification is a card issued by a care facility, but because the OLP is not licensed by the state, the cards are not valid, said Sister Eleanor Mary Marconi, I.H.M., assistant administrator at OLP.

These fearless patriots just put a group of elderly nuns, through hours of tireless waiting; still not obtaining their identification, only to be told that they cannot vote. Someone had to stand up to these seasoned criminals, trying to use their right to vote.

In fact, Voter fraud cases amount to, less than 1/10th of one percent.

Still yet, the disenfranchisement of thousands of legally registered voters continues.  Most are overwhelmingly black and Hispanic Democrats. This has all happened before. In 2000, the Presidential race was won by thousands of voters. Oddly (not really), that’s close to the same number that they purged.
