Will Democrats Ever Get Over Voter ID?

Just came across the social media wire - Democratic Party of Georgia is crowing about a John Lewis speech on voter ID. First from the scribes at the DPG:
This notion is not foreign to the people of Georgia who have struggled against the imposition of voter photo ID laws, unusual use of Social Security checks in the last election by the Georgia Secretary of State, and the convenient malfunctioning of voting machines in certain jurisdictions.
 Lewis in a floor speech quoted in the release:
But make no mistake, Voter ID laws are a poll tax.  People who struggle to pay for basic necessities cannot afford a voter ID.
Only one problem. In Georgia, ID cards are free.

Time to let the hyperbole go and move on.
