And a twelve year-old shall lead them out of the darkness and into the light:
As for Senator Rucho’s opinions on requiring ID at the polls, here are a few of his greatest hits:
“It is nearly impossible to live in society today without photo identification. Whether you are going to the bank, traveling, filling a prescription or even picking up the family dog, you will be asked to present an ID.” The bill, “re-establishes a level of confidence in the electoral process and also in our state government.“ The bill puts, “honesty and integrity into the electoral process.”
Last week, blogger Greg Flynn reported that Senator Rucho’s son was charged with using a fake ID to obtain alcohol, consuming alcohol underage, and stealing a bottle of alcohol. I confirmed through a search of public records that indeed one Robert Anthony Rucho II from Matthews, NC was arrested in Chapel Hill on April 17th on these charges.
One of these days I hope to grow up and be like Madison Kimrey. :)
