Ike Skelton and the Verified Voter

Let me comment for a minute on a story I heard on NPR.

I find it beyond belief that Democrat Ike Skelton, a 29 year veteran of Congress and presumably a responsible adult familiar with the law, would go by the voter registration area in Missouri to get his voter ID, and NOT have correct identification to get his ID, unless he was doing it as a political stunt.

Add in the fact that he seems to have immediately gone out and given an interview to National Public Radio, and anybody else with a press pass, and one can not help but draw conclusions. It will be quite interesting to see the demographic shift that happens under the new election law as only people verifiable as legal voters cast their ballots. Perhaps a few less grandstanding Democrats might even be elected?

Well, it appears that a Judge in Missouri has decided that requiring positive identification of voters is too much trouble to be legal, so I guess Ike Skelton won’t have to dig up his birth certificate now.
Of course this is the Democratic viewpoint expressed in the link. I would be interested in finding out if any of these people would accept a check with nothing but a utility bill as identification. (I would guess not) And also it is strange, that one of the defendants (Sec of State Robin Carnahan (D)) in the lawsuit should put out a press release so quickly expressing her joy that she lost.

I put some incorrect info in the previous comment, it's gone. But I will say that Ike and Red Skelton were two completely different folks and my favorite is not Ike.
