Those folks fighting tooth and nail to block voter ID — claiming there is no fraud at the polls — will be left sputtering by this story:
The News & Observer reports Hyo Suk George had lived legally in the country for nearly two decades before a town council member at church encouraged her to vote. She registered in Columbus County with a driver’s license, Social Security number — and a green card. George voted in 2008, 2010 and 2016.
On Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Terrence Boyle said the board of elections in Whiteville “ought to be a little smarter than” accepting a green card as proof of voter eligibility. Green card holders are not U.S. citizens.
George, 70, faced prison for illegal voting, but Boyle let her go with a $100 fine.
