North Carolina Republicans Introduce Another Voter ID Law

Speaking of voter ID and voter suppression — Republicans in North Carolina introduced another voter ID bill yesterday that will limit the forms of identification that are acceptable.

RALEIGH Resurrecting one of the legislative session’s most contentious issues, Senate Republicans unveiled a new voter ID bill Thursday that would further restrict the forms of photo identification accepted at the polls. [...]

It eliminates about half the types of photo identification allowed under the House version, including cards from UNC system colleges, state community colleges, local governments, private employers and law enforcement agencies. The bill would take full effect in the 2016 elections.

“We want a state-issued ID or a federal-issued ID,” said Sen. Tom Apodaca, the bill’s chief supporter, expressing concern that college IDs “could be manipulated” and allow out-of-state students to vote in two states.

This is a direct assault on the right of students to vote.

Students, as you might have heard, have predominately voted for Democrats in recent years.

      Can’t have mental whiplash without mental capacity. And that POS Apodaca is about as free of mental capacity as any brain-dead gooberheaded GODDAMN FUCKING IDJIT REPUBLICAN TURD on the planet.

    UNC is a state school, so any ID issued by the school should count as a state-issued ID. But that’s not the republican demographic so I guess fuck em
