Blatant discrimination against the poor and minorities in Illinois...

New Law Requires Photo ID To Buy Drain Cleaner
CHICAGO (CBS) – A new state law requires those who buy drain cleaners and other caustic substances to provide photo identification and sign a log.

[...]The law, which took effect Sunday, requires those who seek to buy caustic or noxious substances, except for batteries, to provide government-issued photo identification that shows their name and date of birth. The cashier then must log the name and address, the date and time of the purchase, the type of product, the brand and even the net weight.
[...]State Rep. Jack Franks (D-Woodstock) obtained passage of the new law following attacks in which drain cleaner was poured on two Chicago women, badly scarring them.  read the rest

So, I want to be absolutely sure I understand this. 

Democrats want a law to force us to show a photo ID to buy drain cleaner, but oppose a law to require a photo ID to vote?
