Moreover, it has been upheld as constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, in an opinion written by former Justice John Paul Stevens, a liberal stalwart.
States such as Georgia and Indiana have had voter ID laws similar to the Texas law in place for years. The turnout of black and Hispanic voters in their local, state and federal elections was not affected by the ID requirement, disproving the claims of critics that ID requirements suppress anyone's vote.
But as Governor Rick Perry of Texas states the Holder DOJ is not going to let anything stop its pursuit of Texas:
"The filing of endless litigation in an effort to obstruct the will of the people of Texas is what we have come to expect from Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama. We will continue to defend the integrity of our elections against this administration's blatant disregard for the 10th Amendment," said Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry. Abbot added: "Eric Holder's outrageous claim that voter ID is a racist plot to disenfranchise minority voters is gutter politics and is offensive to the overwhelming majority of Texans of all races who support this ballot integrity measure."
If you agree with Governor Perry and Hans vote for his argument and against the other arguments.
