Why Tuesday?

Enough Is Enough

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

Before we headed to Iowa to ask the 2012 GOP candidates how they’d protect our right to vote, I stopped by the Current TV studio of The Young Turks to talk about why we were hitting the road. Host Michael Shure asked me about how new restrictions on the franchise this election cycle play into our work. I told him they go hand in hand:

Enough is enough with some of these laws in some of these states. People are trying to roll back the Voting Rights Act of 1965 which said we’re going to take a good hard look at any proposed changes in states with a history of discrimination… from Texas to Florida, wherever. Any attempt to restrict the franchise. Whether it’s voter ID or taking back early voting is terrible, and it’s very closely connected with what we’re doing at Why Tuesday.

Watch our entire conversation.
