The quote you cited is a thought-provoking one; your point is well taken. My problem is with this idea (I'm paraphrasing) "if people can't be bothered to acquire a Photo ID, they must not be too interested in having a vote". With all due respect, I can't disagree with that more strongly. The people who have *the least* chance of ever being disenfranchised (the Bushes, Clintons, Kochs,…

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.

Chicago State Senator arrested for trying to take a handgun on a plane

1 year, 4 months ago by Bob Gough

State Sen. Donne Trotter on Wednesday was busted for bringing a handgun and bullets through an O’Hare Airport security checkpoint on his way to catch a flight to Washington D.C.

From chicagotribune.com: A bond hearing will be held today for state Sen. Donne Trotter, who was arrested at O’Hare International Airport for allegedly trying to board a plane with an unloaded handgun and a clip with six bullets.

Trotter, a Chicago Democrat who is seeking the congressional seat vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr., is charged with a Class 4 felony. He was taken into custody Wednesday morning and held in jail overnight.

A Chicago police officer responded to a call of a handgun that showed on an X-ray machine at Checkpoint No. 2 in Terminal 1 around 7 a.m. Wednesday, police said. When police and an agent from the Transportation Security Administration realized the bag belonged to Trotter, they escorted him to a nearby room to interview him, police said.

Authorities found a .25-caliber Beretta in his garment bag, and a clip containing six live rounds in a separate side pocket, according to police, who said the gun was not loaded.

Trotter told police he worked late Tuesday night at his job as a security guard for All Points Security and packed his bag early this morning, police said. They said he told authorities he didn’t realize the gun was in the bag.
