    I just saw this breaking news story on TV about a 77 year old mother who moved to another state to live with her daughter. She had been voting every election since 1956. She had a brand new ID card from her home state but her new state wouldn't accept it as proof and state law said she must have a Birth Certificate. She said that where she was born, most black people her age didn't have Birth Certificates.

    Her daughter said they filed a lawsuit.

    Haven't found any other stories about this. It will be interesting to see what happens.

    On the same show, they showed a Wisconsin Republican committing voter fraud:

    Then maybe she should just provide a 'certificate of live birth'.

    You must have missed this part:

    state law said she must have a Birth Certificate. She said that where she was born, most black people her age didn't have Birth Certificates.

    So what, where the Hussein was born they didn't issue birth certificates. It didn't stop him from getting a 'certificate of live birth' from a state fifty years later.

    Maybe she should have voted absentee. One of the reasons the USSC upheld Indiana's voter ID law was that you do not need picture ID vote absentee.

    Then she was not telling the truth. It is impossible to live and get along without being able to prove who you are. You cant cash checks, work (unless you are from Mexico) apply for benefits of any type, go to collage (unless you are from Mexico) enroll your kids in school (unless you are from Mexico), so in short, its bullshit.

    Hawk, some states issue "Certificate of Live Birth". I listed a couple months ago. The state is ignoring the principle of COMITY. If you are arrested in Florida because you don't have a FLORIDA driver's license, that would be OK with you?
