The Republican-controlled KY Senate has pushed forward a bill requiring a photo I.D. to vote in time to help Moscow Mitch win reelection in November.
The bill comes just a few weeks after the newly elected Democratic governor restored the voting rights of 140,000 people with prior felonies.
“My opinion is that this bill is aimed at an imaginary problem, at confusing people and at winning elections at all costs.” said Democratic Rep. Angie Hatton.
Kentucky joins a long list of GOP-controlled states pushing voter suppression to deal with this “imaginary problem” (see below).
