    ... please re-read my post. I said nothing about this actually being Jim crow laws. I brought up a serious point that the GOP is attempting to disenfranchise people that are generally not poised to vote for them.

    you claimed she had a point

    this actually does have some merit.
    I'm quite sure that democrats benefit the most from voter fraud, but I see no reason to try to link efforts to stave off fraud as reminiscent of jim crow. Anybody that defends her idiocy is an idiot themselves.

    what 'specifically' are the Republicans doing to disenfranchise 'certain people', and 'specifically' who are those 'certain people'?

    You posted an OP-ED piece by a leftist journalist and expect us to take it as fact?

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I find it interesting the DNC Chair would bring up Jim Crow. Dems have a negative history in race relations.

    As for the what she was saying, I don't understand how presenting photo ID will prevent anyone eligible to vote from voting. Some states give drivers licenses for free if you can't afford them. Am I missing something, or is the presentation of photo ID what initiated her comment?
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    I find it funny that nearly everyone even in poor communities have cell phones but they cant afford a one time per 10 years or so purchase of $10 for a photo ID from the DMV.

    OP-Eds have citations regardless, especially in the Washington Post. You can't just make something up and get your story printed in big time newspapers. You can find exactly what I said by googling it and reading it on another website if you'd like. This is a serious issue.
