Mandatory photo ID for voters now a “family values” issue

Here’s a rather interesting reminder of the remarkably monolithic nature of the right-wing echo chamber: The North Carolina Family Policy Council [1] — a group that claims to be “a nonpartisan, nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to the preservation of the family and traditional family values” — has apparently decided that the phony, conservative talking point issue of mandatory photo ID for voters is now one of its isues.

How else to explain this new 500 word “special report” on the subject [2] that the group went to the trouble of posting on its website and tweeting out this afternoon?

What’s next — trying to make support for regressive, pro-plutocrat tax policies a “family value?” Oh wait, that’s right, they already tried that too [3].   

Next thing you know, a local “libertarian” group will be featuring offensive anti-choice rants [4].
