WEACy's Double Standard.

Was reading Fox Politics and came across the following:
As some of you may know, WEAC is among the state’s most powerful special interest groups. Earlier this year, the Madison-based teacher’s union came out against our proposal requiring voters to present a federal or state-issued photo ID card at the polls before being allowed to cast a ballot. Their rationale was that this requirement places an undue burden on the right of citizens to vote. One would assume their opposition to the Photo ID requirement would extend to their own union elections. Well, not necessarily.

According to WEAC’s own website: “Delegates to the 2007 WEAC Representative Assembly will be asked, for the first time, to bring photo identification. The photo ID will be required to register as a delegate, and again to vote in the WEAC elections.” [all empasis added] I guess what’s good for the goose isn’t necessarily good for the gander. This bit of irony will definitely spice up the debate on the Photo ID bill when the proposal comes up for a vote on the Assembly floor on April 17.
