During a fiery exchange, Rep. Nancy Mace got Texas Democrat Senfronia Thompson to admit how many things in life you need I.D. for in an attempt to illustrate why voter I.D. requirements are reasonable.
Rep. Mace: Do y’all need IDs to buy alcohol when you’re purchasing at the store?
State Rep. Thompson: Yes, to be sure that you are capable of doing that.
Rep. Mace: Right. Do you need an ID in Texas to buy cigarettes?
State Rep Thompson: You can’t buy them unless you’re at least 21.
Rep. Mace: But do you have to show an ID to buy cigarettes?
State Rep Thompson: You do have to show an ID.
Rep. Mace: Do you need an ID when you’re getting a job and trying to get on payroll in Texas?
State Rep. Thompson: Yes.
