We'll have to enforce the law to find out what's in it

We'll have to enforce the law to find out what's in it

Nancy Pelosi's got nothing on Carole Aichele, who is Tom Corbett's Secretary of the Commonwealth tasked with enforcing the voter ID law:

Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Carole Aichele, testifying Tuesday during a state trial on the state’s controversial voter ID law, said she wasn’t sure about the details of the law, but stood by her unsupported claim that 99 percent of voters had valid identification.

I don’t know what the law says,” Aichele said under questioning, according to CBS.

Aichele also couldn’t provide any evidence that 99 percent of voters already have a valid form of ID, as the state has claimed. CBS reported that when lawyers cited testimony from a Department of State official calling the number likely inaccurate, Aichele responded “I disagree.”

The truth is that Republicans, including Corbett and his minions, have no idea what their law does, other than it's a magical-elect-Romney-machine. Meanwhile, the funny thing is that just yesterday the Daily News was bemoaning the lack of female lieutenants in the Corbett administration. Maybe the bigger problem is the lack of good Corbett lieutenants.
