NC’s new voting law lands the state on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (video)

In an effort to explain how states have responded following the Supreme Court’s decision to gut the Voting Rights Act, The Daily Show’s Aasif Mandvi traveled to Asheville.

Wednesday night’s segment featured Buncombe County Republican precinct chair and GOP executive committee member Don Yelton, offering an interesting defense for the state’s new voter ID requirement.

    Another republican turd exposing himself and his party for what they really represent. Who was that tool calling liberals un-American yesterday? I guess he thinks Yelton is a “real” American.

    David,

    According to these hicks, liberals are un-American every day… For they are the chosen ones.

    I think Mr. Yelton might have just bought himself a front-row-center ticket to a deposition in the voting rights lawsuit.
