Rand Paul: We Can Get Rid of the Special Voting Provisions Now Because They Work

The interesting thing about voting patterns now is in this last election African-Americans voted at a higher percentage than whites in almost every one of the states that were under the special provisions of the federal government. So really, I don’t think there is objective evidence that we’re precluding African-Americans from voting any longer.

— Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), quoted by WFPL.
