Attorney General Holder on voter suppression
See the AG's impassioned plea against voter ID laws. He cites the Government Accountability Office's recently released study showing that states with restrictive voter ID laws have "sharper reductions in election turnout than those that did not." Those reductions "came disproportionately from African Americans and young people." And the regressives that create such voter suppression laws are well aware of this fact and is the true reason they do it. They also know that their purported reason for such laws, voter fraud, is itself a fraud but it plays well with their ignorant base. Their agenda is quite clear; they know they cannot win on facts so they must not only manipulate the narrative with lies but prevent as many people as possible from voting, especially the demographic above that votes predominantly Democrat.
