Clinton Slams Walker, Other GOP Wannabes On Voter Rights

I'll be the first to admit I'm more of a Bernie Sanders kind of liberal, but I do appreciate the way Hillary Clinton isn't afraid of the whole damn clown car of GOP wannabes, including Scott Walker:
“Here in Texas, former governor Rick Perry signed a law that a federal court said was actually written with a purpose of discriminating against minority voters,” Clinton said. “He applauded when the Voting Rights Act was gutted. And said the lost protections were out dated and unnecessary.”

“But Governor Perry is hardly alone in his crusade against voting rights,” Clinton added. “In Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker cut back early voting and signed legislation that would make it harder for college students to vote. In New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie vetoed legislation to extend early voting. And in Florida, when Jeb Bush was governor, state authorities conducted a deeply flawed purge of voters before the presidential election in 2000.”
For the record, Walker hasn't stopped mewling long enough to make a reply.
