Hillary Clinton official Secretary of State portrait crop hillary clinton joins condemnation of harsh north carolina voter suppression bill

August 13, 2013 – Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined the condemnation of the harsh and Draconian voter suppression bill that North Carolina Republican state lawmakers and Republican Governor Pat McCrory passed and signed yesterday, saying it "reads like the greatest hits of voter suppression". She also weighed in on the recent gutting of the federal voting rights act and the effort by Republican state lawmakers across the country enacting laws making it harder for people to vote. Speaking in San Francisco yesterday she said, "In the weeks since the ruling, we've seen an unseemly rush by previously covered jurisdictions to enact or enforce laws that will make it harder for millions of our fellow Americans to vote." 

JTMP urges our supporters to contact your state lawmakers and governor, and tell them you do not support voter suppression efforts, and demand they start making it EASIER for Americans to vote, NOT HARDER. The USA.gov website has a great place for you to find out how you can contact your state lawmakers and governor, check it out HERE. Watch the C-Span video of her speech yesterday at the American Bar Association conference below.  (Photo credit: US Department of State)
