Left wingers are absolutely giddy because Asa Hutchinson—a GOP gubernatorial candidate who supports voter ID laws— forgot his ID when he went to the polls to vote on Monday. Hutchinson was mildly inconvenienced (due to his own negligence) but was still able to vote after retrieving his ID. The event probably resides on the disaster scale somewhere between not having change for the parking meter and forgetting to pick up milk on your way home. But it’s totally HILARIOUS and ironic and stuff.
THANK GOD! That https://twitter.com/hashtag/asa?src=hash Hutchinson story about him forgetting his voter Id at the poll is so freaking funny and ironic!

But wait. If you think about it this sort of shows that the law applies to everybody and not just minorities like the Democrats have tried to tell everyone.
but he's not a "minority" or "poor" I guess it's not racial or discriminatory. Thank for proving the point voter id works https://twitter.com/thinkprogress

And it didn’t prevent Hutchinson from voting. He even won the primary. But he did have a staffer he could send to pick up his ID for him. What about people who might have to go get their own ID?
just cast a provisional ballot. https://twitter.com/thinkprogress Oops! Arkansas gubernatorial nominee turned away at polls because he forgot his voter ID

https://twitter.com/thinkprogress Whats the big deal? He has ID, he just forgot. https://twitter.com/hashtag/VoterID?src=hash prevents https://twitter.com/hashtag/voterfraud?src=hash & unfair elections. Anyone wants ID can get it.

Maybe the irony is in lefties celebrating that voter ID laws aren’t what they say they are.
