Don Yelton, a member of the NC Republican Executive Committee, appeared last night on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show on a report exploring racism and NC’s new anti-voter Monster Law. The interview started as one would expect, with Mr. Yelton reciting a well-known line: “as a result of this law, the process is going to have more integrity.” But pretty soon he went off-message and admitted that the goal is not to stop voter fraud.
“The law is going to kick Democrats in the butt,” said Yelton. “If it hurts a bunch of college kids that’s (sic) too lazy to get off their bohunkus and get a photo ID, so be it. If it hurts the whites, so be it. If it hurts a bunch of lazy blacks that wants (sic) the government to give them everything, so be it.”
Mr. Yelton confirms what others in his party deny: NC’s new law targets Democratic-lending voters, particularly students and African Americans, and that’s good. Watch the entire video clip below.
