Yeah Actually If I Can Briefly Mr.
Chairman you said in your remarks that that my my questions were a partisan diatribe and and I do want to briefly point out. I just want to quote from the United States Supreme Court. Justice Stevens opinion for the majority for six justices where he described laws preventing voter fraud as quote protecting public confidence in the integrity of the electoral process, which has independent significance because it encourages citizen participation in the democratic process. As the carter Baker report observed and hear the court quotes from Democratic President Jimmy Carter and Republican Secretary of State James Baker.
Quote The Electoral System Cannot Inspire
public confidence if no safeguard exists to determine to deter or detect fraud or to confirm the identity of voters. So apparently the views of President Jimmy Carter the views of a sixth justice majority of the Supreme. court are deemed by some members of this this committee to be simply a partisan diatribe and and and if that’s the case I would ask the chairman you, you talked about the laws in Connecticut? Why is it that Connecticut has lower African-american registration and lower African-american turnout than Georgia and Mississippi. You know I’m really not here to debate you Mr. Cruz I subscribe to justice Steven’s opinion and to the views of former President Carter, a distinguished Southerner and i’m going to turn to another distinguished Southerner, Senator Cornyn that speaks volumes thank you Mr.
