Oh, hell no!

More proof that voter ID laws are bullshit:

About 12 Indiana nuns were turned away Tuesday from a polling place by a fellow bride of Christ because they didn't have state or federal identification bearing a photograph.

Sister Julie McGuire said she was forced to turn away her fellow sisters at Saint Mary's Convent in South Bend, across the street from the University of Notre Dame, because they had been told earlier that they would need such an ID to vote.

The nuns, all in their 80s or 90s, didn't get one but came to the precinct anyway.

As dday at Hullabaloo notes:

This is merely the one story that's been reported. You have to expect there are many more; in fact there are several more later in the story. Of course, the Scalia-Thomas-Alito-Roberts faction on the Court will tell you that's just the price we have to pay for dealing with the scourge of non-existent voter fraud.

Anyone else find it ironic that the uber-Catholic Opus Dei nutjobs on the Court prevented nuns from voting? I bet those old-school sisters can still wield a mean ruler! They should bloody those justices' knuckles!

Of course, Scalia would probably dig that.
