SEIU: New Wisconsin Voter ID Bill Is Racist!
Somehow, it’s okay to have to show ID to the clerk at 7-11 for cigarettes and chewing tobacco, or at the liquor store and college bar to buy any form of alcohol.
Heck, you even have to show ID to a cop if you get pulled over.
“This anti-democratic bill is an attempt to silence minority voters in Wisconsin- women, people of color, students, seniors, people with disabilities, the economically disenfranchised and immigrants,” said SEIU Wisconsin State Council President Mike Thomas. “It is unconstitutional and irresponsible to limit the voting rights of our citizens. SEIU will work with our community allies to educate citizens of their voting rights and get them the resources they need to register to vote under this new, extreme law.”
God forbid, citizens who are responsible enough to vote should be responsible enough to get ID.
How about this, SEIU?…Instead of showing ID at the polls, voters can just show a pack of cigarettes or a bottle of booze because somewhere someone will have asked for ID.
