Photo ID hardship

My 86-year-old mother is in a Kansas nursing home and faithfully fills out an absentee ballot to vote in elections. She uses a wheelchair and is unable to walk.

She has not had a driver’s license for many years. I do not think she has a birth certificate to prove who she is.

If she is not allowed to vote in Kansas any longer, then the state of Kansas better figure out a way for the elderly and disabled to prove their existence.

Maybe Kris Kobach needs to go around to nursing centers and take everyone’s picture so they will have a photo ID for voting. The only voter fraud I’ve ever suspected was the election results in the state of Florida in 2000 when Al Gore won the popular vote but George W. Bush won the presidency.

Oh, that’s right, Bush’s brother was the Florida governor. Get busy, Kris, you have a lot of ground to cover before November.

Janet, you were rolling along on a pretty good subject until you brought up that Florida thingy. Seems every recognized news organization that reviewed the Florida results concurred that G W Bush won.

Now take that little chip on your shoulder and go back to helping your mom get her photo ID:-)
