Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock said Thursday that he has never opposed the legal voter identification guidelines and that he also doesn't know anyone who opposes them.
Senator Raphael Warnock: “I have never, never been opposed to voter ID,” Warnock told reporters on Capitol Hill.
“And in fact, I don’t know anybody who is—who believes people shouldn’t have to prove that they are who they say they are,” the Georgia Democrat continued. “But what has happened over the years is people have played with common sense identification and put into place restrictive measures intended not to preserve the integrity of the outcome, but to select, certain groups.”
Senator Raphael Warnock's comments contradict previous statements by the senator showing that he has refused to identify voters for years.
“More than a decade ago, Republican legislators in the state of Georgia, ironically the home state of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., led the way in turning the clock back on voting rights by passing unnecessary and discriminatory voter ID laws,” Senator Raphael Warnock said.
