<More Typical Government Stupidity Here>

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Gavin Clarkson, a recent candidate for New Mexico secretary of state, experienced a one-of-our-50-states-is-missing moment earlier this month when applying for a marriage license in the nation's capital. Clarkson, who lives in Las Cruces, and his then-fiancée visited the District of Columbia Courts Marriage Bureau on Nov. 20 to apply for a marriage license. But, once there, the couple encountered a small problem, Clarkson said. The clerk wouldn't accept Clarkson's driver's license – from New Mexico – as proof of his identity. Rather, the clerk, who mistakenly believed Clarkson was a foreign citizen, said he would have to provide an international passport to get the marriage license. After Clarkson objected, the clerk went to check with a supervisor, who confirmed Clarkson would need a passport.

"You know you are from flyover country when you are applying for a marriage license, give them your New Mexico driver's license, and they come back and say: 'My supervisor says we cannot accept international driver's licenses. Do you have a New Mexico passport?'" Clarkson posted on Facebook recently.

Speaking with the Sun-News about the incident, Clarkson said the clerk went back to check a second time about whether she could accept a New Mexico driver's license as proof of identify. After that, the staff finally concluded New Mexico was in fact a U.S. state and accepted his driver's license along with the application.

Maybe the clerk should have clicked off the porn for a second and googled New Mexico?

I’m not sure what is more disheartening. The fact that this clerk had no idea New Mexico is a state, or the fact that she had no curiosity at all to find out on her own.

About as bad as the Idaho college student whose paper on Australia was given an F because she was supposed to write about a country, but the instructor said Australia is a continent, not a country.

When I was 5 or 6 I thought Maine was a country. Someone has since corrected my ignorance.
