Right to Vote?

Of course you have a right to vote, unless you're Black, or elderly, or least that's the way it is in Ohio .

"Ohio Republicans pass new Jim Crow law disenfranchising 900,000 voters"
by Bob Fitrakis

"While Ohio public employees' rights to bargain collectively are under siege, the Ohio Republican Party executed a perfect sleight of hand by disenfranchising nearly 900,000 Ohio voters. In the most vicious and direct attack on voting rights since Bull Connor ran amok in the deep South, Ohio House Republicans passed HB 159 that requires Ohio voters to produce one of four state photo IDs at the polls."


Then weep for our country.
