Maggart Grateful for Democrats on Photo ID

Tennessee Democrats are railing against the state’s new photo ID law every chance they get, and Rep. Debra Maggart, a Republican, tells TNReport that she’s grateful.
Maggart, the House GOP caucus chairwoman who sponsored the law, said Tuesday that partisan debate on the issue has helped encourage people without a photo ID to get one.
“Thankfully, even though the Democrats continue to complain, they’re actually helping us get the word out, and I appreciate that,” said Maggart, of Hendersonville. “I don’t think they mean to, but they are. That’s an unintended consequence with their unhappiness with this law.”
