Secretary of State Robin Carnahan claims that 230,000 Missourians will be disenfranchised if they are required to show a state issued ID to vote. Well we have a novel idea. Why not use part of the “stimulus” money to buy ID’s for these people? Most Missourians will gladly support allocating this money so that we can make sure that dead people and animals are no longer voting in Kansas City and St. Louis. How much are ID’s, $10? We’ll hardly miss the $2.3 million dollars we’ll spend from the $1.2 billion we now have on hand. We know this will never happen, it makes too much common sense!
