image Council Bluffs, Iowa – September 16, 2010 – Michael Mauro accused Republican Secretary State Candidate Matt Schultz of not understanding the law or deliberately misleading Iowans after Schultz accused Mauro of lying about Iowa Photo ID requirements.

Matt Schultz recognizes that voters must show identification if they vote using Same-Day Voter Registration as well as if they are considered inactive voters. Voters registering on Election Day and voting accounted for less than 1% of those who cast a vote in the June Primary election. Schultz’s plan is to REQUIRE ALL voters to show a Photo ID when they vote at the polls, not just a small number of voters.

“I understand the law, apparently better than our current Secretary of State. I don’t know what crib notes Mr. Mauro uses when he studies election law, but I read the Iowa Code. I think it is time he open up the Iowa Code, because nowhere in the Iowa statutes does it REQUIRE ALL voters to show a Photo ID when they vote at the polls,” said Schultz.

Mauro has stated on several occasions that Iowans already must show a Photo ID when they vote. He claims that Iowa Code Section 49.77 and Iowa Code Section 48A are evidence of this fact.

“I am disappointed that Mauro will not be honest about his positions on a Photo ID, but that is politics as usual, the kind of tactics that come from an entrenched incumbent who is part of the Des Moines Democratic Machine. He just wants to have his cake and eat it too by misleading voters about Iowa law to make it look like he supports a Photo ID, when he really opposes Photo ID legislation.”
