Idiota: Washington DC marriage clerk asks groom for his “passport” after he presented New Mexico driver license

And to think that this person votes…

From NBC Washington: A groom encountered a surprising snag when trying to get a marriage license in D.C. last week: A clerk told him his New Mexico identification wasn’t acceptable because it was from outside the United States. 

“She was so sincere. She said, ‘I’m sorry, my supervisor says we can’t accept international driver’s licenses,’” recounted Gavin Clarkson, who went to get a license with his now-wife, Marina, at the D.C. Marriage Bureau on Nov. 20.

Clarkson said that when he first presented his license to the clerk, she looked at it, went to talk to the supervisor and then asked to see his “New Mexico passport,” he told NBC Washington on a phone call Friday.

He said the clerk was embarrassed and apologetic once the matter was straightened out.

After he informed her that New Mexico was indeed a state, she again went to speak with her supervisor, then told Clarkson, “‘My supervisor and I have verified that New Mexico is a state,'” he recounted.

“Basically, they went back and did a Google search,” he said.

At one point, the clerk also complimented him on his English, he said, noting that his now-wife, who is an immigrant, thought it was hilarious.

Leah Gurowitz, spokeswoman for District of Columbia Courts, wrote in a statement, “We understand that a clerk in our Marriage Bureau made a mistake regarding New Mexico’s 106-year history as a state. We very much regret the error and the slight delay it caused a New Mexico resident in applying for a DC marriage license.”

Senor Clarkson, go back to Tijuana or your country’s capital, New Mexico City, and enter this country legally. I hate to admit it, but this time, President Trump is right. (Need it be said, Sarc.?)

I don’t think New Mexico is one of the 57 States that Obama said the USA has… You know Barry Soetoro never told a lie…. Wanna buy a bridge??

Yes, never fear. Your government minions are hard at work 24/7. Sit back and relax. You’re in good hands. Move along.

And that is what happens when we refuse to teach school children geography.
The same for civics and history.

I’m betting this woman employee came right out of a Mexifornia HS classroom or college or community college at some point in her life. My CA US History students used to ask me if Mexico was a STATE in the United States of America, and furthermore….even if they knew the USA and MExico were each different, sovereign, nations…..they didn’t know to which one “New Mexico” belonged. The West in particular has tested the most woefully ignorant of US Geography, government, and history. This has been on-going for decades….so this doesn’t really single out CA….but includes the entire Left Coast, the… Read more »
