– “Citizen check proposed for Washington voter registration”
“Legislation requiring Washington state residents to prove U.S. citizenship or legal residency to get state driver’s licenses so elections officials can ensure non-citizens are not trying to register to vote was proposed Friday by Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman.”
“Wyman, a Republican, is in a tough race as she seeks a second term. Her Democratic opponent, Tina Podlodowski, issued a statement noting that lawmakers from both parties have been working on the issue for years ‘with Wyman sitting on the sidelines.’
‘Only now, after a recent tragedy, is she stepping forward to score political points,’ Podlodowski wrote,” quoting Rachel La Corte, Associated Press.
– Editor’s Note:
I agree with Podlodowski, “Only now, after a recent tragedy, is she (Wyman) stepping forward to score political points.”
