Quote of the Day 3/26/2015

“In Oklahoma and across the United States, we had this frantic, contrived debate about voter fraud. We’re finding out … that all of the arguments for the need for these laws were completely conflated and false. It was all designed to attack a problem that did not exist. I think the lawmakers of Oklahoma looked up and correctly surmised that they could march to the past with a new version of Jim Crow, or they could look to the future and the inherent intelligence and ability of the Oklahoma voter to go to the polls and cast a ballot.”
