Social Security maintains records of all name changes. In order to make a name change, the applicant has to file an application, explain why a name change is being requested, and has to provide the appropriate documents. The most common name changes are related to marriage or divorce. If you are still in doubt FPSE, check out the name change procedures on the Social Security website. One would think the State of Tennessee would be aware of these facts.

“So, because the social security administration has name change records the DMV should give her an ID? I don't believe the DMV and the SSA share the same database.”
Thank you for being so eloquent in your posts. I applaud you for stating the very facts of this situations without resorting to childish comments and NOT taking the bait of several (obviously misinformed and disturbed) characters. You have captured the very essence of what this mess is all about.
Obviously, a fully backed Republican (House Judiciary Committee Chair F. James Sensenbrenner (Republican, Wisconsin)) maneuver to circumvent democratic rights, the REAL ID Act of 2005 (H.R. 418) through the Department of Homeland Security solves the question of whether Ms Dorothy Cooper was in compliance with her own submitted documents.
Even though Tennessee has been among those states to oppose this legislation (if that can be believed from this fiasco) they still are required to be in compliance with this law.
Ergo. What Ms. Dorothy Cooper presented IS acceptable and for the record DMV the SSA DOES have interactive databases.
