Harris Says Voter ID Bad Because Not Everyone Lives Near Kinko's or OfficeMax

During a portion of an interview with BET, Vice President Kamala Harris gave the most ridiculous response to a question on whether she’d compromise by agreeing to voter ID provisions to pass voting legislation by stating that we shouldn’t downplay the impact voter ID laws could have. 

In a “CBS This Morning” teaser clip for a full BET interview with Soledad O’Brien set to air on the network coming Friday, Vice president Kamala Harris told the former CNN anchor that voter ID laws are just too onerous because “there’s no Kinko’s, there’s no OfficeMax” in some communities.

“I don’t think that we should underestimate what that could mean,” Harris said as she attempted to explain why she wouldn’t compromise on voter ID laws to ram through Democrats’ elections overhaul legislation, the For the People Act.

“Because in some people’s mind, that means, well, you’re going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove that you are who you are,” she claimed, though states often accept pieces of official mail as proof enough to cast a ballot.

“Well, there are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don’t — there’s no Kinko’s, there’s no OfficeMax near them,” Harris said.

“People have to understand that when we’re talking about voter ID laws, be clear about who you have in mind and what would be required of them to prove who they are.

“Of course, people have to prove who they are, but not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are.”

Everyone knows this, but because Kamala feels the need to bullshit everyone all the time let’s do this. First off, local businesses, public schools, post office, public library — just to name a few — would be more than happy to make a photocopy for anyone if that was needed. Or just vote in person on Election Day rather than requesting a mail-in ballot.

Secondly, as the Western Journal points out, “the next easiest myth to debunk is that these people need to send photocopies of ID at all when many states have no such requirement, according to Ballotpedia.”

“As it turns out, even the much-maligned Georgia voter ID requirement can be satisfied with a utility bill or just by providing the last four digits of a Social Security number — something that literally every legal citizen in the U.S. has.”
