Gallegos reacts to decision on voter ID
Sen. Mario Gallegos, D-Houston, had this reaction to today's Supreme Court ruling upholding voter ID laws:
"I'm saddened that the Supreme Court has chosen to legalize discrimination. But just because the court's decision indicates that it's legal, doesn't mean it's right. I have opposed voter ID legislation before, and I'll oppose it again. As long as my constituents are in danger of suffering the indignity of being disenfranchised by an unjust law, I will oppose that and all similar legislation."
