Are Republicans Attempting to Disenfranchise Voters? [POLL]
Democratic candidate for President and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Texas last week when she accused Republicans of attempting to disenfranchise voters in America. Clinton pointed to laws such as Voter ID laws which Clinton said is aimed at poor and minority voters. On Sunday former Texas Governor Rick Perry fired back at Clinton according to Breitbart Texas.
Perry said, “Well, I think it’s way outside the norm of ridiculous, if you want to know the truth of the matter, to call out the people of the state of Texas, that’s what she did, I just happened to be the governor that signed that legislation and support it, and the vast majority of the people of Texas support it, and what Secretary Clinton did was saying the state of Texas didn’t.”
He continued, “Why would you say that you need a photo id to get a library book or to get on an airplane? This is a state issue, and this is an issue that the people that the state of Texas overwhelmingly support. so you know, I don’t know who she is playing to, but she is not playing to the people of Texas and I don’t think she is playing to the Americans that believe that the sanctity of the vote is really important and you need to have a photo id to go and vote. And the people of Texas wanted it, and whichever state Hillary Clinton considers to be her home state, she goes home and argues there to not to have it.”
“I think we make it pretty easy in the state of Texas for people to vote. again, I don’t know what her beef is with the people of the state of Texas about voter id but I think she is on the wrong side of the issue,” he added.
