Senate Dems block Voter ID amendment

Email

Wisconsin Senate Republicans tried but failed Thursday to get a vote on making people show photo ID's at the polls.

Eighteen Democrats voted not to bring up the proposed constitutional amendment and 14 Republicans stood firm in demanding it.

The GOP says voters must identify themselves better to stop fraud. They pointed to a new Milwaukee Police report which outlined numerous problems with the 2004 presidential election.
