Former US Speaker of the House and VoterID

Former Speaker of the House Jim Wright couldn't get a Texas voter id card because he didn't have the proper identification.  Wright is 90 and his driver's license had expired.  His faculty id card at the local university wasn't acceptable.   He plans to go back and try again with his birth certificate.
