In an interview with Al Sharpton, former Vice President Joe Biden claimed that Republicans don’t want black people to be able to vote… because they want voter ID’. And apparently black people are incapable of getting IDs?
“Let me ask you about voting rights. That was another thing the Obama-Biden administration was heavy on under attorney general well as Lynch going in with lawsuits against voter ID and doing in to deal with voter suppression. They have said that foreigners are voting,” said Sharpton.
“It’s a lie. It’s a flat lie. The assertion the president made from the beginning is a flat lie. Every study, every program -every commission that looked at it said it’s simply not true. It’s part of the big lie,” claimed Biden.
“It’s what these guys are all about, man. These Republicans don’t want working-class people voting. They don’t want black folks voting,” said Biden. Wow.
“You have George Will making the argument that felons should have their—after serving their time—their right restored to vote. What is the one thing we want people getting out of prison to do? We want them to engage in society again. What’s the most significant thing you can do to engage? Get in and vote. These guys, you’re talking about 1.5 million people who have served their time who are unable to vote. Of those there are 30% or more that are African American,” explained Biden.
