MO Gov. Blunt Wasted Over $600k on High-Tech Computers for Unconstitutional Voter ID Boondoggle
Machines Now Go Unused, But the Gov Stands by His Use of Tax-Payer Dollars, According to Local TV Report...


Missouri (or as we call our old homestate around here "Thor Hearne Country") wasted more than $600k on special high-tech, high-security computer systems to run their Voter ID system before the Republican's new vote-suppressing legislation was found to be unconstitutional.

Check out the local Fox affiliates video report on the boondoggle, including a confrontation with Blunt...

4. Hard to say...

Their newspapers don't give them much information about all of it. Particularly KC Star.
