Hillary Clinton Opposes Outrageous North Carolina Voter Suppression Law
Hillary Clinton attacks Voting Rights ruling
“By invalidating pre-clearance, the Supreme Court has shifted the burden back onto citizens alleging discrimination,” Clinton said in a speech to the American Bar Association which was honoring her.
Clinton denounced what she called a “phantom epidemic of voter ID fraud,” saying that the damage brought on by the court’s decision could affect citizens at a very local level.
“Throughout our history, we have found too many ways to exclude people from their ownership of the law,” Clinton added.
At the same ceremony, where the association presented Clinton with a medal for her own legal career, as well as aiding to advance the legal career of other female lawyers, Clinton announced the start of a speech tour, surrounding policy in the next few months.
The series of speeches will range on topics like transparency, national security and their impact on America’s leadership abroad. Clinton’s next speech reportedly will be in Philadelphia in September and will be on the topic of national security, her positions on which have inflamed the left wing of her party in the past. Clinton’s position on the Iraq War was a key issue that hurt her primary campaign in 2008.
