To the editor:
Let me get this straight. Conservative Republicans want to slash government programs and regulations. Yet our newly elected secretary of state, Kris Kobach, wants to establish the new requirement that everyone must show state-approved photo ID in order to vote. And this to stop voter fraud, which is reported to have averaged fewer than 10 cases per year in the entire state.
Maybe the idea is to institute this regulation so that the governor’s medieval-sounding Office of Repealer (another new state agency) can then repeal it, and use that as an example of how good they are at cutting back government.
