Our friends on the left like to argue that a voter ID law is unnecessary in Oklahoma because there's no evidence of voter fraud here. Governor Brad Henry vetoed a popular voter ID bill last month.
Does anyone else remember former-Governor George Nigh's quip that when he dies he wants to be buried in McAlester "so I can keep on voting." That's humorous only because there's an element of truth in it. And now that dead people are getting stimulus checks from the man Gov. Henry endorsed for president, I think I'd feel better if we went ahead and put a voter ID law in place. Fortunately, we'll get to go to the polls next year and do just that.
