Philadelphia Weekly reported as recently as Monday that some Pennsylvanians were still seeing the old misleading "Show It" ads on billboards and bus ads, the ones that say you have to show ID in order to vote next month. That hasn't been true since October 2, when a judge ruled that the voter ID requirement law be put on hold. We have also documented the sometimes slow changes the state's VotesPA campaign has made to their ads since the ruling.
Meanwhile over in Harrisburg, the state capital, TRMS viewer Robert Fitzpatrick sends the above photo of a Capital Area Transit bus on Interstate 81 between Harrisburg and Mechanicsburg. Robert says he took the photo at around 2:30 P.M. yesterday, Wednesday.
We reached out to the folks at Direct Media USA, who deal with advertising on CAT buses. They told us there must be a mistake, because the company removed any VotesPA ads that read "If you want to vote SHOW IT" back on October 4, in compliance with the judge's ruling. They told us they'd just put up new advertisements this past weekend -- 10 days or so after the ruling -- which look like this:
In any case, can you spot the difference between the old ad and new one?
