I have no words. Well, yes I do, and they all begin with F.
A 91-year-old Tennessee woman couldn’t get her Voter I.D. because she literally could not stand in line long enough. That’s right, she’s being penalized because she’s frail, too frail to do the bidding of the GOP.
Lasater told The Daily News Journal that she has voted and worked in campaigns for 70 years.
The clerk said there was nothing anyone could do. Well, yes, there is. Voters, get out there and vote these partisan, one-party rule sadists out of office.
Voter ID laws are intended to keep Democrats away from the polls. That’s because they are aimed at the poor, students, the elderly, minorities, and rural voters, who tend to vote Democratic. Let’s not forget those who can’t afford to pay a fee, get a ride, own a car, or otherwise have access to a Department of Motor Vehicles. They’re targets, too.
And of course, one of the results of these laws are things appalling injustices like this: 96-year-old Tennessee woman gets no Voter ID. Why? No marriage license.
Tennessee might want to look up the words “voter suppression”.
