I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: this is just a poll tax by another name. As President, I will fight to restore the Voting Rights Act and stop this and other attempts at voter suppression.
King said: "Give us the ballot." Last month, You voted against the Voting Rights Advancement Act.
@AnthemRespect @HLAurora63D @scrowderems want to give voting rights to felons bc they believe freedom comes w/o responsibility. Generally, felons have lower understanding of responsibility, consequences, rule of law, morality, are prone to act impulsive, lower IQ than avg population. Sound familiar?
53 years ago today, the Voting Rights Act was signed into law by President Johnson. I shed a little blood on that bridge in Selma and friends of mine gave their lives so that no person would be denied their right to vote. Now do your part—get registered, and vote. #goodtrouble
Yesterday I asked Kavanaugh whether or not he believed Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act — which prohibits state and local voting laws that discriminate on the basis of race or color— was constitutional. He refused to answer.
