Why are voter ID laws unpopular with Dems? Because most of those who DON'T have IDs have a warrant against them. Getting one would expose them to the state.

The racial and ethnic inequity of felon disenfranchisement is striking. One in eight black men are disenfranchised by these laws, a rate seven times the national average. In some states it is one in four.

Good point. Felons are "disproportionately" negroes.

Sucks to be a criminal. Do you think they were worried about their voting rights when they were shooting up a Seven-Eleven or raping some random woman?

I feel SO SORRY for them.

From what I've seen I don't think they worry about much of anything.

I can't believe Perry Stein is presenting this bullshyt and actually expecting Americans to be all ripped apart that a bunch of CRIMINALS don't get to vote!

Hey Perry, they're criminals first, Obama supporters second.

Get it??
