They wouldn’t dare…or would they?

The latest rumor making the rounds of the Legislative Building and the Tweetosphere  is that Republicans are considering the certifiably treacherous step of passing a series of “local bills” to enact mandatory photo ID for voting on a county-by-county basis.
The Governor cannot veto “local bills” — which are supposed to deal with truly local matters and are certainly not supposed to be used as a subterfuge to avoid constitutional requirements for passing statewide legislation. The R’s already employed this trick to evade the Guv’s veto of legislation that would have limited access to federal student loans for community college students.
As Chris Fitzsimon made clear in this morning’s column  on the amazingly arrogant House Majority Leader, “This is clearly an ideological crusade now, not a legislative session.”
