Some info about the Sheriff ID cards

Post by scipio-USMC » Tue Mar 13, 2012 2:08 pm

Until around 1988 New York state did not have a photo ID available for those who do not drive. Cayuga County issued the ID Cards in question solely for use in their County. There was no state authorization to issue such IDs and thus thye were not recognized outside of county offices. They were a way for the county to provide access to county services for those lackign a driver license. These IDs were discontinued in the late '80s once New York State established non-photo Driver IDs.

The ID required producing a birth certificate (so her claim she has none is bull and we already knew that because she needed one to get a social security card), a marriage license or legla name change to show surname change from birth certificate and proof of residency in the couny. hey blacked out the address she falsely provided as her county address because it would prove she lied to get the ID. We alreayd know she lied though by providing her forged NJ marriage license to secure the ID.

Her criminal indictment and rap sheet shows her legal name in 1980 when she was imprisoned was Geraldine Gates. Only in 1985 did she suddenly decide she wanted to go by the name Geraldine DeFeo and all she could secure was the crappy county ID in a county she didn't even live in and thus was not entitled to get. There was no way for her to procure the card except by fraud even in her real legal name.
