To the editor:
Who has investigated voter fraud in Kansas? While living in Missouri some years ago, we saw trucks taking men from one part of town to another to vote. It was common knowledge they were all paid a dollar to do this. If ID’s had been required, this would not have happened. Now I am ashamed that we did nothing. We were young. I guess we had not matured to the point of calling “foul” when we observed this.
Friends of ours who have come from other countries and want to become citizens of the United States have gone through the process, and the expense, to legally accomplish their dreams. Why should any person who has slipped into this country illegally even be allowed to stay? Why should they be given benefits for which you and I are paying the price?
It is a great privilege to vote. I will never hesitate to show my identification to assure my qualification. If I cannot physically appear at the polling place, I can ask for a mail-in ballot. What is so tough about that? I appreciate Kobach’s looking ahead to prevent voter fraud. The only minority that would complain are the illegal people and those who want their votes.
