Biden pushes for voting rights on MLK Day | TheHill

Vice President Joe Biden on Monday launched a blistering attack on Republican-backed voter-identification laws during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day speech in Washington, and urged civil rights activists to fight to halt a “hailstorm” of new voting laws and restore recently-abolished provisions of the Voting Rights Act.

“Our opponents know, they know, the single most dangerous thing to give us is the right to vote! They know what that is,” an animated Biden told the audience at that National Action Network’s Annual Martin Luther King Day Breakfast, held at the Mayflower Hotel.
