Jesse Jackson: Voter ID Laws Like Removing Troops From South After Civil War

“Here in Texas, you cannot use a student ID to register,” Jesse Jackson said on MSNBC today. “You can use your gun ID to register, for example. What a switch that is. Or in some instances, they want seniors to show their birth certificate and they don’t have it. They’re on fixed income, and so they have to buy one, and that’s a poll tax, in effect. Or they want to make it more difficult for students to vote. What they found in South Carolina and across the South, they want to remove Section 5, which is like removing the troops from the South after the Civil War, which makes it more difficult for students and seniors and immigrants to vote. And so, why tamper with what’s working?”
