More Hypocrisy from the Left

I was flabbergasted when I read part of this Los Angeles Times article.  Here's what really shocked me:
Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Krekorian released the following details about potential traffic tie-ups:

"For those driving on Laurel Canyon Boulevard and connecting streets north of Ventura Boulevard, please expect delays and/or road closures from about 5 to 8 p.m. If you live south of Ventura in Studio City, the LAPD has advised us that local access to the area will be virtually sealed off from about 8 to 10 p.m., meaning all local residents will need to show a current photo ID for home access." 
So, we have to secure President Barack Obama visiting George Clooney's house for a fundraiser by making people show photo ID, but we don't have secure the future of our nation by requiring photo ID to vote?

This is the same city council that compared Arizona's law requiring proof of lawful presence* to something from Nazi Germany and won't impound the cars of unlicensed drivers out of "fairness," wants you to show photo ID to get into George Clooney's neighborhood.

I'm fine with showing photo ID.  To function in our society, adults must have a photo ID nearly without exception.  I do object strenuously to the hypocrisy of the Left in requiring it in some cases, but demonizing such requirements in others.

*Note that federal law requires immigrants to show proof of lawful presence, too.
