Rev. Al Sharpton and Republican Rep. Jay Love Go at it Over Voter I.D. [Video]
On March 5th, Al Sharpton did what those of his generation do best – march. This time, the reason for the march was the disenfranchisement of African Americans by new Voter I.D. laws. While in Alabama for the march, The Rev. sparred a bit with local state lawmaker Jay Love.
Sharpton questioned Love, â€œHow do you justify Alabamaâ€™s new voter laws when widespread fraud just doesnâ€™t exist?â€ Love responds, â€œWell, Iâ€™ll disagree with you, in the last three years, weâ€™ve had three people convicted of voter fraud in Alabamaâ€¦ And what I am trying to do as a state representative is protect the sanctity of that vote.â€
What many wonder is, why the “sanctity” of the vote began to matter only after a black man was elected President? Sort of like how the Constitution began to matter only after President Obama was elected. See a pattern?
