Perhaps if Lowery had spent less time on the Ashley Madison website and trying to fix something that is not broken he wouldn't be in court trying to stop the foreclosure of his home.

Maybe Rapert & friends need to stop finding new ways to screw us. Where's the report on all the bad bills filed yesterday (including TWO new "bathroom bills" just for starters)?

Yeah, a lot of those bills are just Shell Bills (title only no details). What is also surprising is the number of those that have already had their first reading..Not sure how this could be legal, but with the Lunacy Crew, I guess all rules are off.

yuk you. We all know why the gop controlled legislature wants this. Not for voter fraud..duh! They have an agenda and nationwide they have a well coordinated effort to restrict voting. Yet it is inevitable that total control to restrict voting will be the law of the land, as any oversight by the feds will be stifled or directed to investigating gop partisan delusions.

Just add the state has to make the effort , documented to provide under the circumstances of a case by case basis, to insure every voter can comply with the restrictive attempt to stifle votes by providing sure fire methods to provide these people with id's.. The main argument from the right, in our christian state is if these people are too stupid to obtain them then they have no right voting. Well, perhaps we can add pure meanness to their agenda of control.

And yet, one poll worker during the last election told a voter that she was required to show ID.
