Just a certified copy of a birth certificate and drivers license or other govt. issued ID. Idunno how they are supposed to give the drivers license? [/break1]kslegislature.org/li/b2011_12/year1/measures/hb2224/]http://www.kslegislature.org/li/b2011_1 ... es/hb2224/I don't think the birthers are going to like that bill. And, I don't know why it's so tame as birther bills go. They passed some doozies.the bill is dead for now. The article linked below says it could come back in time for 2012 election. They were busy passing legislation to disenfranchise voters. They now require photo ID and proof of citizenship to register to vote. It's Connie O'Brien's bill.. You remember her:O’Brien told a legislative committee that she witnessed a woman in line at a community college requesting scholarship money, but the woman said she had no photo ID.O’Brien told the committee that the woman, who O’Brien said was not from the U.S., was going to get financial assistance, and O’Brien’s son, who was born and raised in Kansas, wasn’t.“We didn’t ask the girl what nationality she was. We didn’t think that was proper, but we could tell by looking at her that she was not originally from this country,” O’Brien said.Rep. Sean Gatewood, D-Topeka, had asked O’Brien how she could tell, and O’Brien replied, “She wasn’t black, she wasn’t Asian, and she had the olive complexion.”Kansas is also where that guy petitioned to keep Obama off the ballot. Pat posted that earlier. They said "too early". [/break1]ljworld.com/news/2011/apr/22/bill-kansas-legislature-would-require-obama/]http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2011/apr/2 ... ire-obama/

Kansas. The state that leads to my receiving calls from friends in France or Canada asking, "Are you guys really still debating evolution?" My answer: "Actually, I think evolution may have skipped Kansas." And as an Arizonan, that's saying a lot.Voter I.D. laws are the modern vessel used by Republicans to keep Latinos from voting, just as they previously kept blacks from voting through every creative means they could conjure up.

It's Connie O'Brien's bill.. You remember her:


O’Brien told a legislative committee that she witnessed a woman in line at a community college requesting scholarship money, but the woman said she had no photo ID.





O’Brien told the committee that the woman, who O’Brien said was not from the U.S., was going to get financial assistance, and O’Brien’s son, who was born and raised in Kansas, wasn’t.





“We didn’t ask the girl what nationality she was. We didn’t think that was proper, but we could tell by looking at her that she was not originally from this country,” O’Brien said.





Rep. Sean Gatewood, D-Topeka, had asked O’Brien how she could tell, and O’Brien replied, “She wasn’t black, she wasn’t Asian, and she had the olive complexion.”That's hilarious depressing. I hadn't seen that before.





I wonder how Trump's relationship is with the olives?

House panel passes bill derided as 'birther' inspired





A House committee approved a bill Wednesday requiring candidates for state and federal office to provide proof of citizenship, a reflection of the "birther" movement raising questions of President Obama's status as a U.S. citizen.





Rep. Ann Mah, D-Topeka, said the measure advanced by Republicans on the House Elections Committee was a shot over the bow at the Democratic president.





"This is a birther bill," said Mah, who voted against the bill. "This is just silliness to get at the president."





However, Rep. John Rubin, a Shawnee Republican, said his motivation for advancing the bill wasn't to root around in debate about Obama's citizenship. He made the motion in committee to tweak the bill and then to approve the final version.


¡Sterngard! come home.

Interesting. Kansas is a state that carries it's bills from one session to the next.I wonder what the "tweak" was? the original rquirement was not that exciting:(e) A candidate for any national or state office who seeksnomination by either primary election or petition pursuant to subsection(a) shall show proof of United States citizenship to the secretary of statein the form of a certified copy of the candidate's birth certificate and thecandidate's drivers license or other government-issued identification.If it's going to progress further it'll have to be approved by the full house by Friday next week.

Has anyone pointed out to these numbnutz that the Constitution does not require government issued IDs?If not, an Article III court will point it out if it ever becomes necessary. Until then, it's just mental midgets in the playpen of state politics.
