U.S. AG Eric Holder Slams Voter I.D. to NAACP in Houston

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke at the NAACP Convention today in Houston.

Holder talked about the Voter I.D. Law in Texas being “harmful” to minorities and that Texas is “the center of our national debate” on voting rights in America.

Holder also said, ‘The arc of American history has always moved towards expanding the electorate. It is what has made this nation exceptional. We will simply not allow this era to be the beginning of the reversal of this process.”

Holder was scheduled to speak yesterday, but was bumped to today for unspecified reasons. NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous told the crowd yesterday to get out the vote in November.

The NAACP is launching a campaign to stop to Voter I.D. initiatives across the country and a fall voter drive for the General Election in November.
