OMG! This is so sad!
The couple told us in a statement:

Sarah Silverman has the "brand new super f*cked up" Voter ID laws in her crosshairs and isn't shy expressing her opposition to them.
Since the fate of those laws is out of her hands, she wants every potential voter to be prepared this election so they don't get turned away at the poll due to insufficient identification.
That means voters in
Pennsylvania, Indiana, Florida, Michigan, South Dakota, Idaho, Louisiana, Kansas, New Hampshire and Georgia need a photo ID to cast their ballot on November 6th.
The problem is, an estimated 18% of seniors and young voters, plus 25% of African Americans, don't have a valid ID. That means 3.2 million American citizens might not be able to vote this year!
In a HIGHlarious video explaining the new state laws (above), Sarah charges that "this attempt to prevent voter fraud is itself the only voter fraud taking place."
The video clip of Republican State Rep. Mike Turzai proudly proclaiming that Voter ID "is going to allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania" pretty much seals the deal for her argument if U ask us!
Tell it like it is, gurl!
