Hey, Kamala. Do you Copy?

By Audrey Unverferth, The Federalist

Vice President Kamala Harris infuriated Americans on Saturday after she suggested voter ID laws don’t work because it’s “almost impossible” for rural Americans to photocopy their IDs.

“I don’t think that we should underestimate what [compromising on voter ID] could mean,” Harris emphasized in an interview with BET News. “Because in some people’s mind[s], 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. Well, there are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don’t — there’s no Kinkos, there’s no OfficeMax near them.”

“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,” Harris continued. “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.”

Harris’ interview initially aired on Friday, and quickly drew backlash over the weekend for seeming incredibly out of touch with Americans.

Harris’ remarks ignore the fact that there are countless ways in which Americans can photocopy their IDs, from cheap public copy machines to at-home printers. According to Pew Research, over 80 percent of rural Americans own smartphones, providing yet another means through which Americans can order copies of photo identification or can connect to at-home printing devices.

Americans are required to provide identification to fly on an airplane, rent hotel rooms, and purchase, drive, and rent cars, among many other activities. Harris presumably isn’t worried about these requirements.

    Did this nitwit ever hear of a cell phone camera? There are lots of ways to capture an image these days, and to submit it for voting, they would be looking for an electronic format anyway. She has to be the dumbest person to ever hold the VP office, and the thought of her taking over for dementia Joe makes me sick to my stomach! This is what has become of America? Wake up America! It’s not too late to rebel against these clueless lefties!
