Last week a bill with enhanced voter integrity provisions passed the GOP-led Kentucky Senate and is now at the state House, where it is likely to pass. Kentucky Democrats are saying two things about the law that make no sense to say at the same time —there is not enough voter fraud to require a photo ID law, and photo ID laws suppress votes (“suppress” is right up there with “purge.”) The new rule has flexibility—even an expired photo ID can be used. No one is sure whether Democrat Governor Andy Beshear will sign the bill as he has been more concerned with restoring voting rights to felons since his inauguration last month.
