Biden On State Voter ID Laws: "Hatred Never, Ever Goes Away" Staff

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: At least 11 states have introduced legislation recently requiring voters to show ID at the polls, making existing voting laws more restrictive,. Laws like in North Carolina, which imposed a new photo ID requirement, shortened early voting and eliminating same-day registration. These guys never go away... For me, at least, you guys know, but it's an important lesson for me. Hatred never, ever, goes away. This is a constant battle, and it's so easy to think, "well boy, it's finally happened." The Alabama ID bill, which passed in 2007, was never implemented because the Voting Rights Act was still in power, but now it will be implemented. One lesson we've learned is that the zealotry of those who wish to limit the franchise cannot be smothered by reason.
