Video: Pres. Bill Clinton Says GOP Voter Suppression Targets Black Churches, Elderly

Appearing on CNN, on Sunday, former President Bill Clinton warned that Republican efforts to suppress voters were targeted against African-American church members and the elderly (video below), reports RawStory.com.

Clinton told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: “How much will the vote be lessened or reduced by the fact that in Florida except for four counties, the pre-election voting, advanced voting, has been cut down to and doesn’t include the Sunday before the election?”

"It's an arrow aimed straight at the heart of the African-American church, who pull up the church buses on the Sunday before the election and take elderly people who have no cars or people that are disabled to the polls so they can vote.”

“How much is all that going to affect the turnout? In my lifetime, nobody’s ever done anything quite this blatant. So, I think you have to assume it’s going to be close race, assume it’s going to be a hard fight, and then fight through it.”
