    All for the poor woman and the black man who can't figure out how to get an ID, get to a polling place or pre-plan their food and beverage needs for an hour. You'd think people would be insulted. Some no doubt are but they never get a microphone shoved in front of their face

    Third can you give us some examples of exactly what you mean by voter surpression laws?

    @RedStone7476 can you give us some examples of exactly how voters are being surpessed??
