Globe opposes Voter ID bill

In an editorial published today, The Joplin Globe's editorial board came out against the proposed voter identification bill, citing cost and headaches for poll workers.
I would suggest another reason to oppose it; the way it has been proposed, it would provide another lucrative source of revenue for Governor Matt Blunt's license fee office operators. It also opens the door for lobbyists connected to the governor's family to make a killing by representing companies that want to rake in the bucks by providing these new voter identification cards to those who do not have driver's license. For more information, read this post from the April 29 Turner Report.
