Correspondent Doug Curtis’ letter in the 3/25 issue of The Leader is long on allegations but short on supporting data. In fact, there is no documentation at all for any of the ten points he asserts that the GOP legislators have passed.
An additional point he brings up is who gets to vote. Although sadly neglected by very man of our fellow citizens, it is nevertheless a right of citizens, and only citizens, to vote. I think it is perfectly reasonable to ask that anybody who shows up to vote at a polling place be prepared to prove they are eligible to vote. In this regard, I think it is the duty of the State to provide free-of-charge, a birth certificate so that one can establish citizenship.
While I’m sure Mr Curtis is an honorable fellow, his cause would be greatly helped had he provided specific and verifiable facts. Without facts, his letter lacks credibility.
