    Davis wants the reader to suppose that he is taking a courageous stand by crossing the politics of both his party and his race. In fact, he seems to be interested in being elected state-wide in Alabama: Artur Davis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. If so, changing his past position and supporting Alabama's presumably popular voter ID law seems less politically courageous than politically opportunistic. Davis has been accused in the past of pandering to white voters as he sought the governorship in 2010, and I'm inclined to attribute this politician's change of heart to politics as much as principle. Of course, I'd never heard of Davis before and I know little about Alabama politics, so perhaps I'm missing something.

    Even if Davis is sincere, it hardly changes my own views on voter ID laws. I'm far more informed by statistical studies from academic researchers than anecdotal evidence offered by politicos.

    Why does it matter that he is black?

    I love when repubs find a few dems that agree with their position then claim that all dems are brainwashed.

    Finding a dem that agrees with repubs is easy peasy. If you really want a challenge try finding a repub that agrees with a dem. You won't, dems being in lockstep shows they are brainwashed (and it never happens) but repubs voting in lockstep means solidarity.

    Isn't politics funny.?

    then, since all the polls shows voters are in favor of voter ID laws by a wide margin, you must concur.

    I have a Dem who said he was wrong not to support voter ID laws.

    I have the majority of voters who support voter ID laws.

    I have the SCOTUS who found voter ID laws Constitutional.


    You have your dick in your hand.

    Your title should be "A democrat supports voter id laws"

    Color has nothing to do with a law being good or not.
