All over the United States, Republicans have been obsessing over voter fraud and passing restrictive laws in response to that obsession. But when something improper pertaining to voting does come to light, the alleged offender isn’t necessarily a Democrat.

In Alabama, according to AL.com reporter Kyle Whitmire, State GOP Chairman John Wahl has been using an ID that isn’t traditionally used when one votes in in the state.

“When you vote in Alabama, state law requires you to show a photo ID at the polls,” Whitmire explains. “For most folks, this means a driver’s license. But other forms of government-issued ID are permitted — a military ID, a passport or a college student ID, among others, will do. And if you don’t have any of those, the Alabama Secretary of State’s office will help you get a special voter ID. The office will even make house calls for the non-ambulatory.”

Whitmire adds, “But the last few times Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl voted, he presented poll workers with an ID they’d never seen before. To someone who had never seen a state employee ID, it could be mistaken for one. But it wasn’t. It bore a state seal, a barcode and Wahl’s picture. The badge said Wahl was a media representative for State Auditor Jim Zeigler.”
