South Carolina's own State Law Enforcement Division (headed by the state's Republican attorney general) went through those (supposed) 35,000 votes with a fine-toothed comb... and eventually found no reason to believe that any fraud had occurred. The vast majority of that 35k figure you mentioned was eventually determined to be simple cases of human clerical error by poll workers; those happen…

I used the word "freely", which does NOT mean "I got an ID for free". As to your other point, all I'll say is that your experiences are not mine, and mine are not yours... Whether you want to believe it or not, there are Americans who through no particular fault of their own, are not capable of acquiring an ID.

Mayor says moves were made to attempt to solve projected budget deficit

Quincy Journal has learned the City of Quincy has eliminated two administrative positions.

Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore confirmed the cuts this morning and issued a statement:

"The employees were notified that their positions were being eliminated and would not be included in the next budget. The absorption of the two positions was not due to the performance of the individuals, but a reflection that those duties could be handled by other positions within the city. The individuals have served the City of Quincy well and I am thankful for their service."  

Sources have told Quincy Journal the people who were let go were Jane Smith, administrative assistant at Central Services and Marty Wagner, project manager in Engineering/Utilities. The administration would not confirm the names. 

Moore said the moves were made after discussions with department heads on how the City could "reduce costs, streamline our structure and still provide uninterrupted service to our residents."

The City of Quincy now has 304 full-time employees, which is down from 312 employees when Moore took office in May.

Moore said this year's City budget started with a $1.8 million deficit. The budget was put together by the previous administration.

"This year’s budget proposed spending $31.8 million while only bringing in $30 million in revenues," Moore said. "That is not sustainable. My administration is currently working on preparing a budget that is balanced. This decision was just one step in that process."

The City's administration and City Council will be holding a budget retreat at the Town and County Inn and Suites on February 1 at 9:00 a.m. The public is invited.
