So what does it take for a 96-year-old Black woman to get a VOTER ID in the 21st century, her DENTURES? This is just plain despicable.
Dorothy Cooper is 96 but she can remember only one election when she’s been eligible to vote but hasn’t.
The retired domestic worker was born in a small North Georgia town before women had the right to vote. She began casting ballots in her 20s after moving to Chattanooga for work. She missed voting for John F. Kennedy in 1960 because a move to Nashville prevented her from registering in time.
So when she learned last month at a community meeting that under a new state law she’d need a photo ID to vote next year, she talked with a volunteer about how to get to a state Driver Service Center to get her free ID. But when she got there Monday with an envelope full of documents, a clerk denied her request. Read the rest here.
If you need an ID to register to vote, what the fuck is the problem in issuing a photo ID? This here is the lengths to which these vile GOPers will go to suppress our votes. That clerk needs an ass-whooping and a pink slip for this foolishness.
What say you, 3 Chics community?
