Protesters' Chants Nearly Drown Out Voter ID Event
A Capitol rally against Pennsylvania's new voter ID law ended peacefully Tuesday, but not before it spilled over into a news conference where the state's top election official defended the law and efforts to implement it.
About two dozen protesters who Capitol police blocked from attending Secretary of State Carol Aichele's news conference chanted and sang outside the room.
At times, they nearly drowned out Aichele as she answered reporters' questions. Several Democratic legislators who took part in the rally were allowed to attend Aichele's news conference, and followed with one of their own.
They criticized authorities for limiting public access to the news conference and renewed charges that the new law is part of national effort by Republicans to suppress the Democratic vote in the November 6th election.
