Russell Brand doesn't get it
Following last week's elections, reports surfaced in dribs and drabs of voters being turned away from the polls in Virginia and Texas, two states that instituted draconian voter ID laws. It's an off-year election, and the evidence is too anecdotal to understand what kind of effect these laws—designed to disenfranchise the poor, elderly, minority and student voting blocs—actually had, but it got me thinking about Russell Brand.
