VIP-NC Response to Passage of HB 589 (“Voter ID” legislation)

The only excuse that Thom Tillis’ indirectly gave us about his stunningly weak “voter ID” law is that Eric Holder was making him do it. We hope the voters will keep that in mind if they should ever see Thom’s name on a ballot again. . . . Now, the battle moves on to the Senate, where we hope they will approach this with more of an investigative mindset and avoid any up-front concessions that there is no vote fraud in North Carolina.
