(Click on picture to pull up KTAR interview with Bennett in separate window. The "m4a" audio will automatically start.)
The afternoon hosts (Mac and Gaydos) first questioned Bennett about the reports about TANF checks to Arizonans, and got to the voting issue in the 2nd half. Here are a few "quickie quotes" (i.e. gets the gist of the Secretary's comments, not re-, re-, re-listened to and transcribed) from the interview:
"Thrown us into a rock and a hard place. The only way you can comply with both of those at the same time is to kind of run two systems. There will be a handful, about 2,000 (people effected)." . . .
"85% of people who register with the federal form give us something that allows us to verify citizenship." . . .
"We’ve been talking about this possibility ever since the Supreme court ruled (in June)."
