Sen. Jones calls on Congress to “put seem teeth back” in VRA

Pointed remarks from Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) on today’s Face the Nation:

Well, you know I think if you look at– carefully you have to look at the state legislatures, governors and members of Congress that are Republicans. For whatever reason they do not want African-Americans and other minorities to vote. I assume rather than- rather than trying to get those votes, they seem to want to restrict those votes. And I think that that’s incredibly unfortunate. We need to have more dialogues in this country rather than monologues and then we can do it about Voting Rights Act. We talk a good game about everybody having the right to vote and a duty to vote. But at the end of the day we seem to be working to try to restrict that and that’s just wrong.
