A Texas teenager says she’d be disenfranchised if the state’s new voter ID law takes effect because she doesn’t have the right documents to comply with it.
Victoria Rose Rodriguez is an 18-year-old from San Antonio. She testified in federal court in Washington on Tuesday that she has limited documentation — a birth certificate, a high school transcript and a student ID card with a photo on it.
She’s currently a registered Texas voter, but she says her parents are too busy to take her or her twin sister to get new voter identification cards required by the law. She says getting a driver’s license also isn’t an option because it would mean she and her sister would be added to her family’s car insurance, which is too costly for her family.
Are you f**king kidding me?
This witless witness had time to fly to Washington to testify but she doesn’t have time to go to the Texas DMV and get an ID card? How did she get on the plane? Last time I checked you needed ID for that.
If this is an example of a “disenfranchised voter” then we definitely need more voter ID laws.
The worst part? She has a twin sister that is as useless as she is. That family needs some chlorine in the gene pool.
