Document Security Technology, meet photocopier and fax

A fax of a photocopy of a driver's license apparently suffices for an I-9 Employment Verification Form. So much for all the expensive holographic embossing and special paper and other such anti-counterfeiting anti-tampering document security technology.

I don't know to put my face in my hands and cry, or to point and laugh.

I used to rhetorically wonder if government bureaucratic types were as stupid as they seemed, but not so much anymore...
