In Brownsville, State Representative Rene Oliveira just returned from Austin and strongly opposed the voter ID bill.

Oliveira says after a 13 hour debate a photo ID will be required when voting. Oliviera was hoping that people over 70 years of age be exempt and the photo ID requirement will hurt voter turnout in the Valley especially with elderly. Olveira adds that Republicans endorsed the bill to cut down on voter fraud, but there is no real evidence that's a problem in the state.

Democrats, have always used zombies, mentality restricted, illegals and the dead, for votes.
I remember picking up drunks and the feeble minded and taking them to the poles and afterwards taking them to KFC for a free meal...all they needed to do was pull the lever for a straight Democratic ticket... So this voter I.D. is a breath of fresh air...Now will it be in-forced!!
