Holder: Voter-ID Laws Being Used for ‘Partisan Advantage’ to ‘Depress the Vote’

While some proponents of voter-identification laws act from ”a good faith perspective,” Eric Holder indicated that he believes many of the laws are aimed to “depress” non-Republican voters.

Even though he supports the laws in a vacuum, the attorney general said studies show there is not enough actual voter fraud to merit such provisions, and believes current efforts are being done for the sake of a ”partisan advantage.”

“They’ve come up with a remedy in search of a problem,” Holder told MSNBC on Friday. “I think it is being used in too many instances to depress the vote of particular groups of people who are not supportive of the party that is advancing these photo-ID measures.”​
