Eric Holder: Voter ID Laws Are ‘Poll Taxes’
Kudos to Attorney General Eric Holder for telling it like it is about these Republican-sponsored Voter ID laws: Holder Calls Voter ID Laws ‘Poll Taxes’.
No wonder the right wing is trying so hard to take him down.
“Under the proposed law, concealed handgun licenses would be acceptable forms of photo ID, but student IDs would not,” Holder said, referring specifically to the voter ID law passed in Texas. “Many of those without IDs would have to travel great distances to get them, and some would struggle to pay for the documents they might need to obtain them. We call those poll taxes.”
