Totally stolen from WePartyPatriots at DKos, but this should be seen everywhere now. Take your blood pressure meds before watching the vid.
The first station clerk determines that the boy’s bank account does not display enough “activity” to constitute a proof of address form. This is not only absurd (“does he use it?”) but a clear privacy infringement as is the follow up question of whether or not the account is of the “checking” or “savings” variety. “Oh, it’s just a savings,” the clerk remarks. The mother throws a subtle jab, countering that “he’s unemployed.”
Good one, mom.
The mother-son hidden camera team manages to satisfy the bank account busting first clerk and eventually makes it to the third clerk where they discover that unless you explicitly specify that you have come to the DMV for a Voter ID, you will be charged $28. The clerk admits that there is no difference between the Voter ID and the non-Voter ID — they’re literally the same physical object — but that it’s the policy of the establishment to leave the honus for making this distinction on the customer: no signs, no warnings, just a box on the form you have to hope you notice and check.
The mother asks for the clerk’s superior who is somewhat helpful. She then asks for the superior’s superior which we can assume the mother gave hell to when the camera was off.
