FollowUp 4: Voting Rights

Talking Points Memo, today, posted a video to YouTube of Mr. and Mrs. Lee and Phyllis Campbell of Tennessee testifying before Congress.

 They described the ordeal of obtaining a free voter photo ID, now necessary to vote.  As Mr. Campbell describes, the DMV tried to convince them to pay for identification that was supposed to be free.  Please watch the video.

A poll tax is prohibited by the United States Constitution.  The Republican efforts to deny citizens their legitimate right to vote is simply wrong.
