Hyperbole much?

We can hear the U.S. Department of Justice monitors amassing forthwith.

Background:

A proposal requiring Minnesotans to show photographic identification before voting passed through the state Legislature today.

The proposed constitutional amendment passed the Senate, 35-29, this afternoon, hours after the House passed it, 72-57. Voters will decide the issue in the Nov. 6 election.

The proposed constitutional amendment would require all voters to show a government-issued photo ID to vote. The state would be required to provide free IDs to those who need them.

Those backing the bill said it will protect against voter fraud and improve Minnesota’s election system.

“This bill takes that integrity one step further,” said Senate Majority Leader Dave Senjem, R-Rochester.

Related: Coke, Wal-Mart face Dem boycotts over membership in legislative group that supports voter ID laws.

Democratic officials Wednesday launched a two-pronged attack on states with new laws requiring identification before voting, the highlight being a call to boycott Coke, Walmart and others that back a leading organization pushing for voter ID laws.

Coke was quick to react to the boycott threat, pulling support from the targeted group just five hours after it was called.
