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.

    her parents? her parents? and this is an 18 year old adult. wow. great. maybe we should raise the voting age to 25. 😉

    Another Fluke? Great.

    In PA, you can get voter id free. You can get voter id if you are homeless. You can use a less than 12-month expired drivers license. If you live in assisted living /nursing home you can use their id. I don’t think there is any scenario they didn;t think of – as long as you live in PA.

    • PA passed the voter ID thing- and built in all kinds of ways to get the “possibly disenfranchised” voters an ID. Pretty smart move- as it seems to have kept Holder off our asses so far. Anybody who needs a state ID and can’t afford one can get one at state expense.

    You can register to vote at the VA DMV … while your getting your learner’s permit, driver’s license or just a state issued i.d. Just check a box, voila, you’re registered to vote 🙂

    OT – my thought on the Jesse Jackson Jr rehab story:

    • cj says:

      Well, whatever the hell’s wrong with him, he owes the voters more than some vague BS statement about why he’s taking a leave. Ducking behind hippa laws is offensive…and lame.

  5. Lulu says:

    Well it was some 18 year old nitwit or some ex-felons dodging probation officers. Take your pick. And you can bet that she drives illegally. No 18 year old with access to car keys doesn’t in Texas. And her school ID at a San Antonio HS has a picture on it so she does have photo ID.

    • Lulu says:

      Getting a DL does not add anyone to a car insurance policy. We had vehicles when we had teenagers at home that they were specifically excluded from driving. It is a time honored tradition to make the teenager drive the hoopties. Don’t this girl’s parents know anything?

      • votermom says:

        Don’t this girl’s parents know anything?

        I’m willing to bet that the parents are Dem operatives.

        • Lulu says:

          Without a doubt. San Antonio is big public federal employee union town and La Raza. I would like to know where she is going to college this fall.

      • DM says:

        I don’t know about your state, but in CA that’s the case. Once my kids got their driver license, they had to be included in the policy.

  6. carol haka says:

    We have buses in Texas. Maybe she should get on one of them and cross the border in the other direction to check out their voting laws.

    I think she just got confused – she was there for the “War on Women” investigation and just signed up for the next ridiculous waste of taxpayers money.


  7. mcnorman says:

    Oh yeah, cuz we all know that San Antonio has no mass transit system, mommi y poppi have to drive us around. Plus, how can they go shopping for funnsies if they get called to jury duty? Ay!

    • mcnorman says:

      This is representative of many who rely on everyone else to cover their asses. If the family is worried about car insurance, I suspect that they probably whine about the premiums that they must meet yearly for health insurance.

    • Lulu says:

      I bet they can get to the cable company to get a cable box. Home delivery and set up costs a fortune and you still have to take off from work to be there. So everyone can go to the cable company but not DMV. Yeah right.

  8. T says:

    The reality is that what she had really should have been enough…..but yeah, under the current law she isn’t using her time wisely, except if she really thinks she can change the law (which is laughable, call me cynical).

    • Lulu says:

      Polling says overwhelmingly that everyone should present ID and the law should apply equally to all. This is a loser for the Democrats.

      • cj says:

        They probably think they’ll pick up more illegal votes than whatever they lose by going against public opinion. There’s no other reason to be pushing this hard; they didn’t come down with a sudden case of scruples, that’s for sure.

  9. Oswald says:

    How did the DOJ find her?

    Did they run an ad in the paper or something?

    “Are you registered to vote but don’t have photo ID? Call 555-LAME to win a free trip to Washington DC!”

  10. The first thing that’s off here is her calling it a “voter id.” There is no such thing as a “voter id.” There is an id that you must show to vote, and it can be a driver’s license of state issued ID that is just the same, but doesn’t grant driving privileges. Both can be gotten at any state BMV/DMV. If she can’t get a driver’s license because of the insurance (which is a a highly suspicious assertion), she can get the other ID no problem. She’s a tool, obviously. Somebody else’s hand is using that tool.

  11. wmcb says:

    She doesn’t need a drivers license to vote here in TX. The DMV will issue a state photo id. My daughter does not drive, but has her ID. And yes, San Antonio has a fairly extensive bus system. It goes to the DMV. It also goes to the airport, but I’d bet my ass that she didn’t ride it there. I’d bet my ass her parents or someone drove her there, and drive her all over the city for the various things that are important to her.

    Tired of the fecking “victim” liars.

    • carol haka says:

      How do you think she made it to the att store at the mall to pick up her iphone4? Democrats think all people are as stupid as they obviously are!

    • mcnorman says:

      Where there is a will, there is a way. You and I both know that.

  12. wmcb says:

    Also, how did she get on a plane without ID? TSA only accepts a student ID if you are under 18. Did someone pull strings to bend the rules for her?

    • carol haka says:

      You can actually get on a plane without id. You have to have special screening of your person and bags. My billfold fell out of my purse going oak/dfw/oak. No problem.

  13. elliesmom says:

    In the town where I live I know that the following organizations would pitch in to get people without ID to a local government office that issues IDs – The League of Women Voters, The American Legion, the Elks, The Knights of Columbus, FISH, the Masons and the Eastern Star. I know that because they all have elderly outreach programs that help people get to important appointments, and each one of them would consider being able to vote important. I would personally pledge to make 10 trips to the RMV if we passed an ID law. And those 10 trips might take of the whole town. lol The only reason to oppose these laws is to perpetuate voter fraud.

    • carol haka says:

      It’s just another talking point. Contraception. Abortion. War on women. This is just the next round on the list. Geez with all that is wrong it looks like they could come up with something legit. 👿

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’ve had a military dependent’s i.d. card since I was 10. Couldn’t go anywhere on base without it. Movies, pool, beaches …. oh wait, it was required of my sponsor (Dad, then husband) that I have one. Maybe some parental responsibility for these whiny teens should be required.

      Maybe it’s time to raise voting back up to 21 ?

      • Oswald says:

        30 would be better.

        • bluestate says:

          it should be 35 if it’s a day! 😀

          yes, i’m kind of teasing about raising the voting age, but one can’t be president until age 35, yet one can vote for the president at 18. it strikes me as an interesting idea that only people old enough to hold the office should be able to vote for it. food for thought. i do fear obama would not have made it out of the primary if not for the college crowd.

  14. yttik says:

    LOL! That is just astounding. Only in America can you fly to Washington DC to testify that it’s just to inconvenient to take the time to get an ID card.

  15. DM says:

    The voter id problem is a canard. The real fraud is done by the insiders of both parties, such as the 2000 SCOTUS decision and the Democratic 2008 primary, not the regular voters.
