The Justice Department keeps its eye Superglued on South Carolina, a state that historically has been never accused of being color-blind.
Not surprising then that the Justice Department today rejected South Carolina’s law requiring voters to show photo identification, saying the law makes it harder for minorities to vote.
Critics of the law claim it would have a disproportionate impact on minorities and is aimed at suppressing turnout of voters who tend to support Democrats. Supporters generally cite a need to fight fraud.
Perhaps I’m naive, but this day and age, is getting a photo ID all that difficult? Over the years I’ve actually seen minorities board a plane and sit behind the wheel. Yes, even in South Carolina.
So perhaps not.
While the folks at Justice are at it, why don’t they keep a closer eye on street vendors who sell mayonnaise-and-shrimp sandwiches?
