Federal official criticized for requiring citizenship proof on Kansas voter registration forms

LJWorld, is there no checking going on here? You're allowing a spate of fake names to up your "click count" at the expense of rational conversation. Bob Hines, Sammi, Vickey, and, now, Agustus. This is ridiculous that, presumably, one person can log on so many times.

Yes, "Vickey", you do check after the vote is cast if there is reasonable suspicion that he vote was fraudulent. See, that's what you guys don't want to acknowledge, that there are in existence voting laws that can be enforced. What you want, whoever you are, is selective pre-enforcement. Have you noticed that Nazibach's voter suppression law has netted a bunch, a very small bunch, of older, Republican voters and not the evil empire of foreigners trying to throw elections into turmoil.

Whoever you are, "Vickey", you'd be better off not listening to people like you. Better information is available, stuff that will lead you to truthful conclusions.

I hate iPad spell check. Hope you all understood what I wrote.

"Sammi", your first post here, ever, is full of crap. I don't have to drive or have a bank account or any of my hose things you do grow out to want to vote! I don't give a whit that a private business requires me to bathe twice daily, powder my wig, and tap my toes three times to cash a check. That is private business' right and it's my right not to engage in business with it if I don't like the rules. But voting is a bit different. If you don't like that then you're free to start a revolution or circulate a petition to change the constitution. Until then, "Sammi", I suggest you bone up on the law and on representative democracy.

Welcome, "Bob Hines", as a first-time poster on this forum. You must be quite moved by this issue to make your first comment about it his issue. I'm interested, though, in your reasons for identifying these guys, but I'm also quite interested in who you worked for. Perhaps Kansas could us their own expertise in chasing down the massive number of "illegal alien voters" running rampant in our state. Please let us know soon, "Bob Hines". You could be onto something here.

Ok, John, let's try some facts: there is no identifiably, statistically correct number of illegal voters. There is, in Kansas, no lack of potential voters whose right to vote has been "suspended" because of a politically motivated, paranoia-inducing POS law that has no need to even exist.

Don't even get on that "millions of illegal immigrants voting to overthrow Democracy and our nation as we know it" train, either. Voting is a right, John, guaranteed to us by our national law. Voting illegally has already been addressed in law, but, so you might have missed, the framers of that national law decreed that nobody be punished for a perceived crime until convicted of one. Barring anyone of legal age from voting is illegal until it is proven that he is actually ineligible. And, the rate of illegal immigration is dropping rapidly, in case you had not taken a he time to actually research for facts.

Hope that helps you understand my thinks no.

Now help me understand yours. You were saying...?

And nobody, but nobody, has identified illegal aliens as a voting bloc, or as any number that justifies either inconveniencing or disenfranchising any potential voter. Your tea party refusal to see that we don't need laws protecting us from something that just plain doesn't happen is showing

But, obviously, still a citizen of Brownbackistan!

Thanks, Lawrence. I'll try this. Damn, I hate the tea party goofs that make this happen.

Good God, people, how far are we going to go in allowing these "good ole boys" to run rampant over citizens' rights? This is so blatantly wrong that it's incomprehensible that even these guys would contemplate doing it. Somebody tell me who I can call to demand this be rescinded. Please.
