Republicans want voter ID laws, but will they pay for it?

How nice of D. Pazourek of Sparks to insist that disenfranchising black voters just in time for this next election isn't a problem — for him and other rural Republicans of course ("Who says there's not voter fraud in Maryland?" June 26). I'm sure they all have their government issued picture IDs already.

Since his solution is to "do what we can to see those [poor] folks get an ID", I assume he is willing to support a tax increase to pay for those one-in-four city residents who can't afford them. After all, we all know how civic minded Republicans are when it comes to raising their taxes, whether it be for keeping rec centers open or renovating dilapidated schools. I can almost hear them whining already.
