Bob Harris: Not that hard

Not that hard

Regarding Rob Christensen’s Aug. 18 column “Voter law challenges students” on voter ID: It truly breaks my heart to know out-of-state college students who don’t bother to get a valid photo ID before voting will have to care enough to do what soldiers and disabled people have done for years – write for an absentee ballot if they want to vote.

The cynicism of the Democratic Party politicians, so-called civil rights leaders and their partisan media fighting against showing photo ID to vote is breathtaking. We all have a right to vote. But only once.
