Twitchy informs us that ID is needed to attend the DNC, which starts today in Charlotte. How racist! How bigoted! How suppressive! How disenfranchising!
The convention site declares:
Please complete the following form regarding your organization’s primary contact information and the authorized designee(s) to whom your 2012 Democratic National Convention credentials can be issued.
All pickup persons must have a state-issued ID that matches the name submitted below.
Oh, that's not all. You need an ID even if you're merely near the convention, not necessarily attending it:
Pedestrians walking to their home or business that falls into a restricted area will be required to provide identification when the road is closed. Passenger (as opposed to commercial) vehicles attempting to enter streets with restricted vehicle access must go through a vehicle checkpoint.
What type of identification is required?
A standard issued government ID is requested.
More at the Blaze.
This, incidentally, isn't the first time ID was required to attend a Democrat event. The party that has called the idea of voter ID racist, suppressive, even akin to rape! has required ID for events featuring President Hope&Change and even Mrs. Hope&Change.
