As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Breitbart:
Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) claimed Thursday that he has “never been opposed to voter ID,” ignoring his own history of bashing “unnecessary and discriminatory voter ID laws,” describing them as both “secretive” and “subversive.”
Warnock, speaking of Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) compromise proposal to the far-left’s “For the People Act,” praised the measure and said he was “encouraged” by recent developments. However, Warnock also claimed to have never opposed voter ID — a blatant falsehood, as he has spoken out against it routinely in the past.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I have never been opposed to voter ID,” Warnock claimed.
“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. 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 group,” Warnock added.
The report notes that Warnock wrote an op-ed on October 19, 2018 titled “Attacks on voting hit at soul of our democracy.” He wrote in the piece, “More than a decade ago, Republican legislators in the state of Georgia … led the way in turning the clock back on voting rights by passing unnecessary and discriminatory voter ID laws.”
Why is @ReverendWarnock lying?
