O'Keefe Video Plays Key Role In Minn. House Passage Of Photo ID Law

The Minnesota House passed legislation to require photo ID at the polls. The measure in on the way to the state’s Senate.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A proposal to make Minnesota voters show a photo ID at the polls is now halfway to a spot on the November ballot.

The full Minnesota House passed the proposed constitutional amendment in a 72-62 vote after a nine-hour floor debate.

Much of the debate sprang from Democrats worried that the amendment would change how same-day registration works and create barriers to voting for certain groups without access to proper photo IDs, including minorities, students, and the elderly.

A vote fraud video by political activist James O’Keefe is being credited with having played an important role in creating the groundswell leading to the proposed legislation.

Rep. Drazkowski said that he had received many emails from constituents after the Voter ID video went viral. This is the second time a state has voted an ID law into place after voter fraud videos.
