Ruben Benthall: Just a little?

Just a little?

Regarding the April 16 editorial “Desperate GOP”: I’m for voter ID, and the first time I heard of opposition to this, I immediately thought, “What are they afraid of?” Why wouldn’t they want people who want to vote to show that they are who they say they are and, oh, yes, that they are actually alive?

One of the worst arguments you have against voter ID is, , “There is very little voter fraud in this state and Republicans know it.”

This reminds me of the man who was trying desperately to get his daughter married. He told the guy she was dating that she was beautiful and almost perfect in every way except she was just a little pregnant – not much, just a little.
