Actress Kerry Washington joined the chorus of celebrities denouncing Republican-backed voter-integrity laws, arguing that they disenfranchise minorities and people of color. In a tweet on Monday, Kerry Washington urged her 5.5 million followers to reach out to Sens. Tim Scott (R-SC), Kyrsten Sinema (R-AZ), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Rob Portman (R-OH) and demand they vote “Yes” in favor of the “For the People Act.” “Black and brown voters are being specifically targeted when it comes to voter suppression. PLEASE. #CallOutYourSenators. Tell them they need to be on the right side of history when this vote goes down, they need to vote YES. Your voices and your votes need to [be] heard,” she said. Despite the Left’s insistence that election integrity laws, such as the one enacted in Georgia, discriminate against minorities, the evidence says otherwise. In fact, some of the proposed requirements, like the voter ID requirement, have majority support among black voters, per reports. “Nearly 70% of black people living in America support laws that require prospective voters to provide an ID, such as a driver’s license, before being allowed to cast their ballot,” reported The Daily Wire.
