Now that the NC General Assembly has finished passing the Does-Nothing-About-Divorce Amendment, it's time to look at the text of the bill and discover the truth about the law.
First, it's been reported that the amendment will be on a ballot in May. It ain't necessarily so. Take a look at the text of the bill. It reads:
The amendment set out in Section 1 of this act shall be submitted to the qualified voters of the State at a statewide election to be held on the date of the first primary in 2012, which election shall be conducted under the laws then governing elections in the State
(b) No registered voter shall be eligible for a North Carolina voter identification card if that registered voter has a valid unexpired drivers license, learner's permit, provisional license, or a special identification card for nonoperators issued under G.S. 20-37.7.
So, these idiots are going to require people to have a photo ID to vote, and then bar people from getting a voter ID.
