JEFFERSON CITY | Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon on Friday vetoed legislation that would have required voters to show photo identification at the polls and allowed some ballots to be cast before Election Day.
In his formal veto message, Nixon said the bill would disenfranchise voters...

A veto is possible however, we have our RINOS too.
This is a battle we need to win before 2012. The article states
Were both of those issues in the same bill? If I were gov, I'd sign half of it.
Oh, right, just for voting...
(that’s a blast from the past, isn’t it?)
In Barry’s new American banana republic, preventing voter fraud is now known as “disenfranchising” DemocRAT “voters” who are so worthless and ignorant that they can’t seem to be able to come up with a voter I.D. in order to vote. Now that’s pretty ignorant if you ask me. People this worthless and ignorant shouldn’t be voting anyway. IMHO.
Also, ID will no longer be required to enter a government building, enroll in public school, buy liquor or tobacco, cash checks, apply for unemployment, welfare or social security, check out a library book, to fly, buy a bus or train ticket, obtain a passport, or open any kind of credit account
lest people be disenfranchised
Yet we need an ID to get a job, cash a check, to buy cigarettes, alcohol (which I’m sure the dem voters do), open a bank account, and a lot of other things. But asking someone to show an ID to vote would “disinfranchise” them. The dems promote voter fraud - simple as that.
We have a voter ID requirement in Michigan now. Look what happened.
We won the governor’s mansion, 2 US house seats, attorney general, secretary of state, several state senate seats, several state house seats, and a state supreme court seat.
“In his formal veto message, Nixon said the bill would disenfranchise voters who dont have access to a photo ID or the documents necessary to obtain one, such as a birth certificate. Specifically, he said access to the ballot box could be limited for seniors and the disabled.”
So, how’d they get registered to vote in the first place with no birth certificate or ID? Hmmm?
Unfortunate name for a guy with possible higher political ambitions.
Unfortunately early voting is on the table here. Unbelievable. I just wrote my Senator on facebook to find out what is going to be done.
EXCELLENT POINT! Thank you for the reminder.
Well that might happen in St. Louis or KC but that won’t happen in the smaller towns. They’ll get their clock cleaned around here.
Time to make the law actually work for the rest of us = sue merchants, banks, airlines, TSA, etc. for demanding photo ID to conduct other types of business, as it must also "disenfranchise" minorities, elderly types and single women!
“We won the governors mansion, 2 US house seats, attorney general, secretary of state, several state senate seats, several state house seats, and a state supreme court seat.”
Well done. Love your state. One of two snow states where I really felt at home.
Yes...life is a *itch isn’t it? So unfair...
