An op-ed in today’s Columbia Daily Tribune by Secretary of State Jason Kander (D):

Voter ID is a false crusade

Impersonation fraud imaginary.


Sunday, February 23, 2014

Nearly every year during the past decade, the Missouri General Assembly has tried to pass, or has passed, a strict voter photo identification requirement. And every year, the legislation either gets stopped somewhere in the legislative process or a court rules it unconstitutional….

….this yearly crusade can’t actually be about voter impersonation fraud because everyone agrees Missouri hasn’t had a case of it….

….Trying to stop 220,000 eligible Missourians from voting doesn’t protect our democracy, but it weakens the integrity of our elections.

And that’s exactly what it’s all about – suppressing the vote of an eligible constituency which doesn’t tend to vote for republicans.
