A Commonwealth Court hearing on Pennsylvania's new voter-identification law featured videos underscoring its political implications and the burden it places on some voters.
Lawyers seeking to block the new law Monday played a video of state House Majority Mike Turzai boasting before a Republican gathering in June that the new photo ID requirement is going to allow Mitt Romney to carry Pennsylvania in the Nov. 6 election.
A 94-year-old woman who is a plaintiff in the lawsuit testified by video that she rarely leaves her room in a Chester County senior living center, but never misses an election. Bea Bookler said she can't understand why lawmakers now are forcing her to get a photo ID.
The law requiring all voters to show a photo ID takes effect on Election Day.
