Missouri House Passes Photo ID Requirement For Voting

The Missouri House has passed two pieces of legislation that would usher in photo ID requirements for voters.

First, the House passed HJR 47, a proposed constitutional amendment to allow for photo ID requirements at the polls. This proposed amendment would also need voter approval.

About 45 minutes later, the House passed House Bill 1073 to implement those requirements. During floor debate Thursday, state Rep. Jay Houghton, R-Martinsburg, asked HB 1073's sponsor, Tony Dugger, R-Hartville, how easy it is to commit voter impersonation fraud in Missouri.

"So I could be walking down a street, walking by somebody's trash can, pick up their electric bill, go walking down the street again, hand that electric bill to you, and ask you to go vote," Houghton asked.

2. Now we need to ensure that people have a way to get an ID

 

We cannot allow the Republicans to win the election because Democrats don't have ID cards. Is there anyway to have IDs made at voter registration desks? What about Democratic groups pay to have the IDs made? We need to think outside the box here or it could be trouble on election day. Let's still not let the Republicans win.

3. Meanwhile, no ID or anything else required to buy a gun in the secondary market.

 

As long as you're buying it from a "private party."

Very unfair. Right to vote versus imaginary right to buy and sell firearms.
