GUEST EDITORIAL PHOTO ID THE WAY TO ENSURE AGAINST FRAUD by Edward P. Shallow A former voting section prosecutor who testified before Congress regarding the New Black Panther case said there is vast potential for fraud in the November elec- tions due to the Justice Department refusing to enforce portions of the Voter Assistance Act. J. Christian Adams in an interview with Fox News, Meghan Kelly said in the last presidential election "a lot of ineligible felons did in fact vote." The problem, and it has happened in every national election in recent memory, is voter fraud and it is real. In many cases, those implicated are members of left- leaning groups run by unions, George Soros, illegal alien activists and in each election, the far left has an army of operatives padding voting rolls.

It is a national disgrace that a clown like Franken stains the hallowed halls of the U.S. Senate. If you are an honorable citizen of the United States and expect to have our elective process free from cor- ruption then join me and demand that every voter in every state be required to show a photo ID before you are allowed to vote. Failure to implement a photo ID will continue to invite fraud in our sacred right to have each vote be authenticated. Good government concerns every citizen; in that regard I inform readers that: Colorado, Arkansas, Mary- land, Massachusetts, Oregon and Tennessee did not expunge any dead voters, as required by law, between 2006 and 2008. We do indeed have a problem! I am in receipt of an e-mail from an organization named "The Politics Behind New Voter ID Laws"; the (Continued on Page 12) LETTERS POLICY The Post-Gazette invites its readers to submit Letters to the Editor.
