Kamala Harris Mocked After Claiming Rural Americans Would Have A Tough Time Getting A Photocopy Of Their Voter ID

Vice President Kamala Harris criticized voter ID laws by suggesting rural Americans would have a difficult time getting a photocopy of their ID.

Harris made the inexplicable argument in an interview with BET News.

“I don’t think that we should underestimate what that [compromise on voter ID laws] could mean,” the Democrat complained.

“Because in some people’s mind, that means you’re going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove who you are,” she continued.

“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.”

Kamala Harris’ Rural Blunder

Kamala Harris went on to suggest proof of voter eligibility is necessary, but getting a photocopy of your voter ID to vote by mail is very hard.

In fact, it’d be darn near impossible.

“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,” said Harris.

Numerous viewers took exception to Harris’ argument.

Former CIA operations officer Bryan Dean Wright let the Vice President know that rural America can handle the task she finds “almost impossible.”

“Rural American here,” Wright tweeted. “We built this country. We can manage to photocopy our IDs.”

Author Bryan Fischer called Harris’ comments “insulting and untrue.”

Sean Parnell, Republican Pennsylvania Senate candidate, blasted Kamala’s “ridiculous argument against Voter ID” and pointed out “the vast majority of Americans support it.”

A Monmouth poll last month indicates an overwhelming majority (81%) of Americans support voters being required to show ID in order to vote.

While Kamala Harris doesn’t believe rural Americans can find access to a copy machine or to make a photocopy by scanning their voter ID into their phone, her comments indicate she is seriously out of touch with the modern world.

For instance, she’s correct when she states “there’s no Kinkos” in rural America, but that is because the company was bought by FedEx in 2004 and was completely rebranded as FedEx Office in 2008, dropping the Kinkos brand name altogether.

Harris’ role in shaping access for voters to the ballot box is quite important to the Biden administration.

President Biden last month placed her in charge of expanding voter access through such methods as vote-by-mail and early voting, something they define as ‘protecting voting rights.’

Harris responded to her new role by issuing a statement ensuring Americans will have “a right to have their voice heard at the ballot box.”

Those rights include, as she states, that “no American should be kept from voting early, voting by mail, or voting at all.”

Curse those racist Republicans who put Kinkos out of business over a decade ago and rural voters who can’t find another way to make copies like, say, at the local library.

A federal judge last week declined to block parts of Georgia’s new election law, suggesting it could confuse voters, while the Supreme Court a week earlier delivered a major victory for states seeking to tidy up their election laws.

In their opinion, Justice Samuel Alito indicated that just because voting may be “inconvenient for some,” it does not mean access to voting is unequal.

Somebody should photocopy that ruling for Ms. Harris and send it to her desk.
