Ask Hillary what she thinks about Kulongoski's idea
Kulongoski poses with the (former) Mexican Consul to Oregon who says that rape is just part of Mexican culture.
Kulongoski still supports driver's licenses for illegal immigrants
Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski still supports giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, even though New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer has backed away from a similar proposal.
Spokeswoman Patty Wentz said Kulongoski believes life would be safer for all if illegal immigrants had to go through the process of getting licenses.
The chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, Democrat Rick Metsger, said the consensus among lawmakers is that the public strongly opposes the idea.
He "believes life would be safer." Life is safer if we provide ID for criminals who otherwise wouldn't get it? I have an easier time believing in the tooth fairy. At least most of the lame-brains in Salem have realized which way the wind blows on this one.
Unfortunately the status quo is for illegal aliens to get this valuable ID and through inaction the legislature can keep this travesty going without generating a lot of public controversy like they would if they offered a "driving priviledge card." I think that we will be checking our ballots to solve this problem.
