Libertarian Gubernatorial Candidate to Challenge Constitutionality of Florida’s Read ID Act before Judge Cathy McKyton

by Haydee Oropesa

Adrian Wyllie, the Libertarian party Gubernatorial candidate for Florida, surrendered his Florida’s driver’s license in May of 2011 in protest of Florida’s Read ID Act passed by Florida’s legislature in 2005.  (Read complete history here).  Wyllie informed the law enforcement community that he would be driving around the state of Florida without a license in order to prompt his arrest so that he could gain standing to challenge this law.  On  May 9, 2014, Wyllie was arrested and his case has been assigned to Judge Cathy Mckyton’s division.

  1. Not sure of the legal challenge. The state clearly has the right to require certain documents for the issuance of a license. The state of Florida is not required to follow the requests of the federal government, and some states have either refused to implement the federal I D guidelines or have issued two licenses, one that meet the federal guidelines, the other one does not. The consequence, those identification cards not meeting the federal guidelines will not be sufficient to enter any buildings or transportation systems where the federal authorities are in command. I commend this effort, but I think the court is limited in its review.

  2. this will be interesting. could even end up spending some time in jail over this one with judge mckyton. you can’t buy entertainment like this. can’t wait to see who will be representing him.
