FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky's Republican state lawmakers took advantage of their supermajority in both the House and Senate on Tuesday and voted to override Gov. Andy Beshear's vetoes of five bills.

They're also expected to vote to override his line-item vetoes of the budget either Tuesday night or Wednesday.

Advertisement By far, the most high-profile of the bills Beshear vetoed in its entirety was Senate Bill 2, which requires voters to present a photo ID at their polling location.

Emperor Beshear told the media he is “way past politics”

Yea, sure. Can’t wait to read the rantings of the Communist ( Courier Journal)

Looks like leftist governor Beshears got his asses “sheared” and butt good.

Re the lack of a need of an official voter form of Identification, here in Virginia (now a Marxist/fascist state), you are given a Voter Identification card when you register at your local voting precinct.

You have to present several forms of ids in order to get it. A valid Va. drivers license is one. I have govt id, Social Security card, medical cards, car insurance card, and plenty of bills (which I would gladly share with Va. political officials).

Many illegals don’t vote for fear of being caught and charged with not only violating immigration laws, but also voter fraud laws. And it works as far as I know though some might slip through the security net by owning a home and thus being registered on the state or county property tax rolls. Therefore their utility bills would be a form of identification.

Eldery: I’m eldery, I think (75). Have Social Security card, Medicare card, Drivers license still active, tax returns, govt id, etc.

Minority: Irrelevant. If they are a citizen of the state, they will have some form of home ownership identification, legit driver’s license, work id., state/local aid card, Social Security card, EBT, etc. FAKE CHARGE

Disabled: besides all the above possible forms of ids, the disabled get a state card stating that you are “disabled”. Mine came from the Dept. of Motor Vehicles. Could also provide medical cards (Medtronic defibrillator/pacemaker, cancer patient, etc). Also doctors certificates are available, esp. for those missing limbs, eye problems, etc.

Poor: Besides all the state forms of aid cards, the poor should have a Social Security card if they have been legally working. The same for employment cards, driver’s licenses, Medicare/Medicaid cards, Voter registration cards based on above mentioned documentation, etc. ANOTHER FAKE CHARGE against voter ID registration/card.

THe Kentucky legislature must stymie this nutcase governor at every legitimate turn and keep their political opposition boxed up like a snake in a sealed container.

Big win is right - dems can't win elections honestly, they have to resort to fraud.

Supermajorities in the legislature with a Demonicrat Governor proves voter fraud. How is that outcome even plausible?
