Chris Matthews to Kay Hagan: Does GOP Push Voter ID ‘Because They Don’t Like Blacks?’

‘Is this based on racism or on partisanship? Why are they trying to screw the black voter, to put it bluntly? Is it because they don’t like blacks?’

Chris Matthews To Dem. Senator: Does GOP Push Voter ID ‘Because They Don’t Like Blacks?’ (NewsBusters)

Chris Matthews continued to beat MSNBC’s voter suppression drum during an exclusive interview with Senator Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) on Monday night’s Hardball.

Matthews, who like much of MSNBC has claimed that Republicans want to block minorities from voting, made the issue a focal point of his discussion with the North Carolina Democrat. The Hardball host hyped the interview by playing a clip of himself asking Senator Hagan “why are they trying to screw the black voter, to put it bluntly? Is it because they don`t like blacks or because they don`t like Democrats?”
