Orlando Watson, the Republican National Committee’s communications director for black media responded to Hillary Clinton’s call for federal legislation requiring universal voter registration for everyone and 20 days of early voting by saying:
“Clinton’s rhetoric on voting rights “is misleading and divisive” because “in reality, the vast majority of Americans – including minority voters – support commonsense measures to prevent voter fraud.”
Clinton, speaking at Texas Southern, an historically black college, lambasted North Carolina and other states for instituting reforms to their voting systems and accused them of disenfranchising minority voters. She evidently didn’t get a chance to look at North Carolina’s turnout numbers for the 2014 primary and general elections.
In the Breitbart article Watson pointed out that it is Clinton’s “home state” that doesn’t offer early voting while “dozens of Republican-led” states do.”
“Clinton’s shameless attacks ignore the fact her Democrat-led home state of New York does not allow early voting while dozens of Republican-led states do.”
“Her exploitation of this issue only underscores why voters find her dishonest and untrustworthy.”
It really is simple – voting reforms such as voter photo ID are just plain commonsense ways to protect our fundamental and precious right to vote. In poll after poll, both statewide and nationally, voters agree with voter ID requirements and election reform that protects their votes. But, liberal/progressive leaders will continue to strive for chaos at the polls by pushing for such outlandish voting practices such as – universal voter registration, mandatory voting, voting out of precinct and registering to vote without validation or verification.
