BREAKING: NC GOP Blinks on Voter ID Law

Far as we can tell, Barry Smith is the first out with news that NC House Republicans have caved on requiring a photo ID of every voter.

More about this after the new version of the bill becomes available ... presumably after the 1 p.m. hearing today in the Education Committee.

I wonder what caused them to back off? The costs? Cause it sure as hell wasn't a concern for the homeless without a "proper" ID.

Realized that a large # of their base didn't have ID's and the bill would cost them votes.

That's exactly what happened, Anon.
