A former Alabama democratic congressman who ran to try to become the state’s first Black governor last year, has come out in support of the state’s new controversial voter ID laws.

Artur Davis, who many compared to President Barack Obama and Newark Mayor Cory Booker, came out in support of the state’s controversial law which would prevent many African Americans from casting a vote.

In a recent editorial, Davis alluded to numerous instances of voter fraud in some of Alabama’s predominantly Black precincts.

“The truth is that the most aggressive contemporary voter suppression in the African American community, at least in Alabama, is the wholesale manufacture of ballots, at the polls and absentee, in parts of the Black Belt.”

“Voting the names of the dead, and the nonexistent, and the too-mentally-impaired to function, cancels out the votes of citizens who are exercising their rights —that’s suppression by any light. If you doubt it exists, I don’t; I’ve heard the peddlers of these ballots brag about it, I’ve been asked to provide the funds for it, and I am confident it has changed at least a few close local election results.”
