Texas ‘Voter ID Law’ Ruffling Feathers [VIDEO]

About 30 years ago in the building of another radio station, one my colleagues asked  for my opinion on then prez Jimmy Carter.  Knowing absolutely nothing about politics, I could hear my "Poli-Sci" teacher saying "...never discuss religion or politics at work".

Today, I know even fewer politics, that is to say, not qualified for any legiti or non-legitimate discussion.  Nevertheless, if you are a registered Lonestar state voter, you could possibly have a viewpoint regarding the VOTER ID Law,  which is currently under fire.
