Space, Phoebus call for New Jersey Voter ID law

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

No argument from me on this one, Save Jerseyans. Voter fraud is a real problem and the means of guarding against it are sooo inoffensive that only perpetrators of fraud could complain! 

At least a few Garden State politicians agree with me. One week after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a challenge to the constitutionality of Wisconsin’s Voter ID law, incumbent Assemblyman Parker Space (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris) and his 2015 primary running mate Sussex County Freeholder Gail Phoebus are calling on Trenton to adopt a voter ID law for the Garden State.

license“Former Governor Brendan Byrne, a liberal Democrat, famously said that when he dies, he wants to be buried in Hudson County so he can stay active in politics,” joked Assemblyman Space. “Is voter fraud in Hudson County more legend than reality? If we pass my bill, we can put the question to rest once and for all.”

Space and outgoing Assemblywoman Alison McHose introduced A-3742 back in September 2014; their proposal would both update polling place challenge procedures AND require voters to supply a government issued photo ID as proof of identity prior to casting a ballot.

The pair is also promoting a petition hosted by the Skyland Tea Party.

Backed by both the regional party establishment and conservative groups including New Jersey Right to Life, Space and Phoebus are facing a June primary challenge from former Green Mayor Marie Bilik and 23-year old Branchville resident Nathan Orr.

  1. Yo folks, is there something in the water in New Jersey ? The “Tea Party” (read Neo-Con mission creep) or whatever the Psycho-Babble that overtaken the Republican Party, is the poster boy for the larger Communitarian/Agenda 21 fifth column in the United States. It’s just a smoke screen for the larger left/right dialectic.
    I wouldn’t touch the Tea Party or those two “Republicans” with a Hazmat suit on. Matt, your throwing gas on the fire by giving this nonsense the image of credibility.
