Kansas Gov. Sebelius Vetoes Voter ID Law

The always-impressive KS Governor Kathleen Sebelius vetoed a bill that would disenfranchise untold numbers of voters by requiring them to show photo

The always-impressive KS Governor Kathleen Sebelius vetoed a bill that would disenfranchise untold numbers of voters by requiring them to show photo identification before casting their ballots. Expect more states to attempt to implement these draconian laws now that the Supreme Court paved the way.

The Governor's statement:

“Additionally, no elected official should support enacting new laws discouraging or disenfranchising any American who has been legally voting for years....HB 2019 seeks to solve a problem of voter fraud which does not exist in our state due to the tireless efforts of our local election officials."

As Bill W. mentioned earlier, the Great Threat posed to our democracy by "voter fraud" is virtually non-existent. The thousands of people who would lose their ability to vote, however, is very real.

Josh has more.
