Tia Sutter, a lawyer and a former assistant district attorney, is among the most anxious Pennsylvanians awaiting a verdict on the state’s voter-ID law. She’s also one of the law’s least-likely victims.
Sutter has never driven but always voted and doesn’t have a proper photo ID – and can’t possibly get one before November 2012. Sutter testified in court late last month in the American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit seeking to overturn the law.
Some background on Sutter:
- born in Queens, NY in 1951
- birth name is Christine
- nickname is Tia
- Sutter’s 1960s-era Social Security card was issued to Tia Sutter.
- her 1983 diploma from Boston College Law School and bar-exam certificate both read Tia Christine Sutter.
