A Democratic lawmaker Thursday demanded that the Corbett administration pull a TV ad designed to educate Pennsylvania voters about the new photo-identification law that takes effect in the November 6 election, calling it offensive.
Rep. Babette Josephs charged that the 30-second ad calls into question people's patriotism and their right to vote.
What angers Josephs most is the closing shot of a woman holding a Pennsylvania driver's license and saying, "If you care about this country, it's time to show it."
The ad, part of a multimedia campaign to try to ensure voters know about the law and how to comply, has been airing statewide in all of the state's media markets since Aug. 27.
The commercial features people of different ages and genders taking turns advising viewers that if they care about the election, want a voice, have an opinion, want to make a difference or want to vote, they must "show it."
A narrator explains that voters will have to show an acceptable photo ID with a valid expiration date at polling places on Election Day.
