Desperate Kentucky Republicans now want every voter to produce an ID with a photo

Seriously? My old precinct is the largest in my home county ... 1,100 people. You're related to or know most every voter

Voter fraud is a myth, especially in Kentucky

You may wonder what's the big deal about getting an ID with a photo. My mother was born in a coal camp. There was no hospital record or official county record of her birth. Her mother died shortly after her birth.

She never knew the date of her birth or her middle name.
My father was in the military for 30 years. At one point, the plan was for my mother to travel to Germany with him. In order to do that, she had to go back to her home town and look for elderly people who would lie in an affidavit regarding my mother's full name and date of birth
I have voted in every election since I was 18. I've voted in Appalachia & Midwest.

I've never been asked to show any form of ID

Trump's commission to investigate alleged voter fraud was a tool for enabling voter suppression by Republicans

The mechanics of voter fraud:

An imposter would have to do hrs of research, find the name, address & voting location of a registered voter to impersonate, travel to precinct, stand in line, forge roll, hope no 1 knew actual voter

4 hrs invested: 1 vote & perhaps a felony change
