Only from academia: “College kids too busy to get Voter ID”

Voter photo identification bills are advancing across the United States.  Polls show more than 80 percent of Americans approve.  Ruth Colker, a law professor at Ohio State penned an op-ed in the Columbus Dispatch arguing that it would be a burden on college students to obtain a photo ID.  The reason?  College kids are too busy!  Really, truly.  If this is the best talking point that voter ID opponents can find, expect to see legislation sweep the country by the 2012 election.  I have more details here.  Or, if you want to read up on the Bleacher Report giving the title of #9 Party School to Professor Colker’s employer, click here.   Maybe a photo ID center can be set up in the Party Barn.
