US House passes voter ID card legislation

On the House floor earlier today, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blasted what she called a "tawdry" GOP attempt to suppress millions of votes with a Voter ID bill, RAW STORY has learned.

"Though the right to vote is the foundation of our democracy, the bill we debate today would in effect disenfranchise millions of American voters: the elderly, African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, people with disabilities; and the list goes on," said Pelosi.

If passed, the "Federal Election Integrity Act" (HR 4844) would require eligible citizens to show government-issued, current and valid photo identification at the polling place in 2008 in order to vote and proof of citizenship by 2010.

"And that is why it is so sad to see this bill come here to the floor today, especially named the Federal Election Integrity Act," said Pelosi. "Integrity, it's not about integrity."

"It's about a tawdry attempt by Republicans to suppress the votes of millions of American citizens," Pelosi continued. "That is not integrity."
