Republicans argue that it's no big deal to require voters to produce a photo I.D. before casting their ballots. Somebody ought to tell Mark Sanford. With TV cameras rolling, the Republican governor of South Carolina showed up to vote this morning in Sullivans Island. He was turned away. To vote in South Carolina, you've got to show a voter registration card, a valid South Carolina driver's license or a South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles photo I.D. card. The governor seems to have had none of the above.
