OWS: Hilary Shelton on the need to stand up to the Koch Conservatives and voter suppression

Keith and Hilary Shelton, senior vice president of the NAACP, discuss renewed efforts by the Koch brothers and the American Legislative Exchange Council to dampen turnout by voters more likely to support progressive causes on Election Day. According to Shelton, the Koch brothers’ attempts to underwrite disenfranchisement are “unprecedented.” He says, “it’s sad to see that rather than get people to support their agenda, rather than working with the American people under our democratic process, they would undercut the entire process by suppressing votes.”

  1. Thanks for the share. I’m so tired of our so-called election system that I feel like voting only for Third Party candidates from now on. Voted for Obama because I fell for his charisma and mantra of “Change.” He is a sell-out in my opinion and perhaps if enough of us didn’t vote Democratic, it might wake-up the apathetic & craven Democratic representatives?
