Voter ID laws condemned

After the inevitable failure of his voter fraud commission, Trump is doubling down on his voter suppression crusade by calling for oppressive and discriminatory voter ID laws.

The President’s support for voter ID laws is simply unconscionable. Voter ID laws disenfranchise American citizens, including the elderly, young, poor, and persons of color, who are less likely to have a government issued ID and are, therefore, prevented from casting a ballot. The president should address Russian interference in our elections rather than creating roadblocks for Americans to vote.

    It takes some chutzpah to claim that trying to prevent voter fraud is voter suppression.
