NC NAACP: Voter ID is a "ridiculous" first step by Republicans

NC NAACP President Rev. William Barber says it is “ridiculous” that the new leaders of the General Assembly plan to make voter ID [1] an early priority this session.

Rather, Barber says lawmakers should focus all their energy on finding a balanced approach to the state’s budget crisis and creating new jobs.

He says legislators who believe voter fraud should be a top issue this session are merely “pandering to fear and prejudices.”

Barber’s comments followed a Tuesday press conference, announcing the fifth annual HKonJ [2] march. To hear Rev. Barber’s full remarks on Voter ID, click below:
