Let's give fraud the purple finger

Here's an idea that Rep. Mark Green should have thought up, but I'll let him have it for free.

It combines his purple finger/Victory in Iraq caucus with his fantasies about election fraud in Wisconsin.

One of the real "scandals" in the 2004 election was that people were voting more than once, the Republicans claimed. At last count, after a year-long investigation, four people had been charged with double voting, and no one had been convicted.

Green wants photo ID cards to stop double-voting, although it's not clear whether anyone actually voted with someone else's name.

Isn't the obvious solution to do the purple fingers, with indelible ink, next election day? If you've already voted, your finger will give you away. Seems a whole lot simpler and cheaper, doesn't it?

AFTER they are positively identified with a free picture ID from the State--or their DL.

You're brilliant, you know.
