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.

Quad Cities makes bid for Boeing plant that would bring 8,500 jobs

Quad Cities makes bid for Boeing plant that would bring 8,500 jobs

3 months, 3 weeks ago from qconline.com

From from qconline.com:

The Quad-Cities officially threw its hat into the ring this week for a new Boeing manufacturing plant that would provide 8,500 jobs.

The Bi-State Regional Commission sent a letter Monday to Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad asking them to join together to, "submit, at least, a letter indicating a bi-state effort is possible, with a fully detailed proposal to follow."

The letter was signed by Davenport Mayor Bill Gluba, Bettendorf Mayor Bob Gallagher, Rock Island Mayor Dennis Pauley, Moline Mayor Scott Raes, East Moline Mayor John Thodos, Rock Island County Board Chairman Phil Banaszek, and Scott County Board Chairman Larry Minard.

Mayor Gluba came up with the idea for the letter, which he said was written by city administrator Craig Malin.

"We write to solicit your collaboration to add 8,500 jobs to Illinois and Iowa," the letter said. "As you are aware, Boeing is soliciting proposals for a manufacturing plant for their 777X airliner.

"A number of states are vying for this opportunity, with Missouri convening a special session of its legislature to put their best foot forward.

"This is a truly extraordinary opportunity, and calls for truly extraordinary action. As the mayors and county board chairs of a bi-state region with exceptional manufacturing and logistics resources, we ask you both to do something extraordinary; we ask that you work together to submit a bi-state proposal to Boeing."
