Racist Republicans Block Access to Polls?

by Peter Kirsanow

DNC chair and Florida representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz told Roland Martin yesterday that Republicans “want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally — and very transparently — block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic candidates than Republican candidates.” Wasserman Schultz also claims that voter photo-ID laws are similar to poll taxes. Barely two weeks ago, former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile made a similar charge  in a USA Today column.

Clearly, the charge will be a Democratic theme for the 2012 campaign. When the race card is played this early in the campaign cycle, there’s also a good likelihood it will be played often.

This campaign will not be pretty.
