(CNS News) -- When asked whether people should be required to produce an ID in order to vote, just as they must produce an ID to buy alcohol, Maine's Sen. Angus King, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, said ID is not necessary in his state.

"We haven't had it in years," he said, "no fraud, no ID."

At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, CNS News asked King, “Should someone have to show an ID in order to buy alcohol?"

The senator said, “Sure, because we have an age limit.”

CNS News then asked, “And what about to vote?”

Senator King replied, “In Maine, we haven’t had it for years. No fraud, no ID.”

Senate bill S.1, the For the People Act, would have allowed the federal government to override all state voter ID laws. The measure was successfully filibustered by the Republicans on Tuesday, preventing the bill from moving forward in the Senate.
