  •  How would they detect violators of the law? (3+ / 0-)

    For the sake of argument, say this passes and is deemed constitutional, how will the state detect it?

    Republicans won't spend money to detect it, and I don't see any ways it is obvious to detect breaking this law.  

    •  They could cross-check (0+ / 0-)

      voter registration against dependency claims. But that's a lot of trouble. NC, however, has a rather draconian state income tax system that doesn't mind at all spending lots of extra time and effort (and money) making sure they get their allotted share, right or wrong.

      I expect if this passes they'll set up an office just for cross-checking.
