They're more interested in divisive politics.
And ensuring that no one's -- his disenfranchised.
By fraudulent ballot.
This -- Is not about what we're RB.
It is -- -- seven pages.
To create and manipulate elections.
Through voter suppression.
And moments after it was signed the legal challenges began to talk about it now with our panel -- I would got this new -- North Carolina it's not just about voter ID but it cuts down.

Get by Coleman isn't anything yet that you should be required to have a difference in my mind is -- course that voting is a constitutional right.

To pursue your constitutional rights.

I think maybe -- an eye -- from Jason.
Play disagreements Lydia -- out of the expression I was going for it but I'm -- the problem here is that there's no evidence that laws of the sort actually -- The black vote black voter participation has been going up it's been trending up a trend that began before Obama.
And last year's presidential election black voter turnout exceeded white voter turnout even as -- as these laws have been passed.
In various things there's simply no evidence that these laws suppress black voter -- states like.

It does happen -- well no it.
Everything happens people follow up buildings people you don't blow up bridges -- but I think it's a matter of influencing we're changing election outcome.
When with the -- and we heard about that.
You think that so many cash thing about it.
Users in frequent as somebody falling off a bridge correct I think -- 400.
