Jerry Brown's fault for giving out free driver's licenses says
Jerry Brown and our government need to be held responsible for giving people a driver’s license without taking a driving test only a written test just so they can make God damn money and get their Votes form. These people
Tim Scott says
I dunno about the written test only part, but I am absolutely certain the DMV has NEVER issued a drivers license for free. Not ever.
I suspect this is just part of the nonsense claims that circulate in the right wing propaganda chamber about “millions of undocumented people vote in California!!!” that gets “backed up” with the two actual facts “you can register to vote at the DMV when you get a license” and “you do not have to be a citizen to get a license.”
This claim is easily demonstrated as bogus just by pointing out the third easily verified fact that the license you get without providing proof of citizenship is clearly marked as different in that way, and applying for a license without proof of citizenship does not register you to vote. This simple debunking, of course, never gets to the majority of the tin foil hatters out there on the far right fringe, like Donald Trump who spouts off the “millions of illegals voting in California” lie on a pretty regular basis.
Either the ex-president is too stupid to follow the simple explanation, or too dishonest to stop making a patently false claim that discredits the country. I don’t know which…and honestly can’t decide which is worse.
Why so hostile? says
What are you on about? Do you know the drivers’ license status of the offender?

Ya, Illegal … they always run after they mow someone over. It’s what they do.
So do drunks says
Maybe – – but so do those who can’t pass a sobriety test
Illegal, drunk, or just a typical dirtbag resident of the Antelope Valley.
Possibly all of the above.
