What's wrong with Voter ID?

Recently, elections were held in Mexico....elections that were tight, highly partisan and (in the end) held up, by the US media, as an example of how the US should handle a tight election. There were no hanging chads, no pregnant or dimpled chads, no "provisional votes" to dispute - just counted votes. Why is it then that the Democrats fight, tooth and nail, one of the Mexican provisions that guarantees a fair election? VOTER ID.....Mexican voters have to show ID before they can vote, Iraqi voters have to show ID, many European voters have to show id - and yet the Democratic Party fights voter ID. The latest example is out of Missouri...

"Democratic officials from St. Louis and Kansas City sued the state Monday, trying to block a new Republican-backed law requiring voters to show photo identification from taking effect for the November election."

If the DFL (and their national handlers in the DNC) were really serious about making sure that our voting process was above reproach, they would embrace Voter ID, instead of fighting it. What are they afraid of? Are they afraid that if they can't cheat they can't win?????
