Regarding the March 12 news article “Lacking photo ID, Burr casts provisional ballot”: Our senior U.S. senator, Richard Burr, who is chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, suddenly “discovered” he had lost his ID when he went to vote and thus had to vote a provisional ballot? Please tell us more.
How long has his ID been missing? Does he know where he lost it? What reason did he give as his “reasonable impediment” for not having/obtaining a photo ID? I also wonder how long he will have to stand in line at DMV to get a new ID. And what form of proof to identify himself will he use? Will someone be able to drive him there? Has he been driving without a license? If so, for how long?
I do hope our senator is more careful with the information he receives as chair of the intelligence committee.
