Jews Required to Get Special Voter ID Armbands in Pennsylvania
HARRISBURG, PA (TheSkunk.org) — The controversial Pennsylvania Voter ID Law, which requires voters to present a government issued photo identification card when they show up at the polls to vote, has a special provision requiring Jewish residents to display a government issued armband in addition to the ID card.
“This will make it easier for poll workers to identify the Jews,” explained Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett. “And to make it easy for the Jews, we will send state troopers to their homes to assist in putting the armbands on them – you know, make sure they fit and are displayed in a prominent position. It’s a win-win proposition.”
Corbett said he wants Pennsylvania to be known as a “Jew-Friendly” state, where non-Jews can identify Jews “without having to see their last name on a driver’s license to determine their Jewishness.”
The Anti-Defamation League and ACLU have filed suit to prevent the armband provision from being implemented. “This is an unconstitutional, racist, anti-Semitic law,” exclaimed an ADL spokesperson. “What the hell were they thinking?”
The Governor has expressed his confidence the provision will be upheld in court. “We feel the Jew provision is fair and reasonable,” said Corbett, “under the concept of ‘One Jew, One Vote.’”
Corbett scoffs at the accusation the armbands are shameful and degrading. “The Jews don’t even have to watch as the armbands are being fitted on their arms, “ added Corbett. “They can just close their eyes.”
