Comedian Sarah Silverman has made a new PSA regarding the 2012 election and the Voter ID laws going into effect in certain states.
Sponsors of strict voter ID laws argue that these laws will serve as a way to cut down on voting fraud, even though cases of voter fraud are rare.
She contends that Voter ID Laws are actually voter suppression laws aimed at preventing President Obama’s reelection.
“There are these brand new, super f***ed up laws which are presented as ways to prevent voter fraud but are in fact designed to make it harder for specific people to vote: Black people, elderly people, poor people and students. Hmm ... I wonder what those demographics have in common? Oh yeah, they’re probably going to vote for this guy.”
The PSA begs the question, are Voter ID Laws merely tactics of the Republican Party to disenfranchise the kind of demographics that tend to vote for Democrats?
