First, a 96 year old woman can’t get her voter ID because, and I quote, “We may have been able to make some phone calls from the center to verify what her married name is. She is saying it’s Cooper, but her birth certificate does not list Cooper as her married name.”
This raises a question. Do the people charged with identifying correct paperwork necessary for someone to vote actually know what said correct documentation would actually include? I mean, how the hell would Cooper’s birth certificate (which, shoot, let’s give it up for an almost century old black woman even having a birth certificate) have her married name on it?
But there’s also another question Jennifer Donnals’ interview with Woods raises. If they can “work with” Cooper to get the correct documentation, does that not suggest that there is no set documentation? That some bureaucrat somewhere just decides if you get to vote or not based on a whim of whether he’ll accept whatever documentation you might have. How can there not be set documentation?
But just when you thought that Donnals had to have set the record for most ludicrous things to be said on the matter, along comes State Representative Debra Maggart to tell us all about how “those people” already have IDs or else how would they get their beer and cigarettes. You know, “those people,” who sit around smoking and drinking and… I don’t know, being 96 years old?
