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.

EPA gets earful on RFS proposal

Individuals testify in the only public hearing on ethanol mandate cut

From cattlenetwork.com:

Nearly 150 individuals, ranging from federal and state elected officials to representatives from organizations representing agriculture, oil, renewable fuel, and the environment, and private citizens participated in EPA’s only public hearing on its recent proposal to cut the 2014 renewable fuel mandate held in Arlington, Va., on December 5. The proposal is open for public comment until Jan. 28, 2014.

U.S. Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) was on hand for the hearing and said market distorting effects of the RFS on the economy began being felt almost immediately after the RFS was expanded in 2007. Goodlatte has introduced both the Renewable Fuel Standard Elimination Act and the Renewable Fuel Standard Reform Act in the U.S. House of Representatives. “The RFS is clearly unworkable. Under the RFS, the federal government is essentially telling a private industry that they must buy one product, ignoring other groups who also depend on that product and creating an artificial supply-and-demand. I urge the EPA to use your authority to provide the maximum relief possible.”

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad defended the RFS and said reducing it would have an “unbelievable negative ripple effect through rural America.” Branstad blamed EPA of caving to “big oil, who has always resisted renewable fuels.”

Steve Foglesong, past NCBA president and Illinois cattle feeder and corn grower, said the proposal is a great step in the right direction. He said at one time, there was a need for the government policies to help the ethanol industry, but said today’s industry is “mature and sophisticated” and should be able to compete in the marketplace without government support.
