Confirmed: Voter ID Laws Reduce Turnout Among Black Voters; Supreme Court Approves
The Government Accountability Office has confirmed what we already suspected. Dozens of ALEC/GOP-instigated Voter ID laws have delivered their intended results: reduced turnout among black, young and elderly voters. Mission Accomplished.
And these voter suppression laws are being approved and encouraged by the Corporate Arm of the Republican Party (formerly known as the U.S. Supreme Court). North Carolina's new Keep the Nigras Out of the Voting Booth law had been delayed until after the November election by a federal appeals court.
The Supreme Court justices, recognizing the urgency involved, took time out from their busy schedule to quickly overturn the Appeals Court's decision. So now it's full speed ahead for North Carolina in their mission to eliminate early voting and voter registration drives (the Voter ID part of North Carolina's Jim Crow law doesn't take effect until 2016).
