Virginia House of Delegates Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) issued the following statement Thursday on the Democratic Party of Virginia’s lawsuit against Virginia’s voter photo identification law.
“This is another politically-motivated lawsuit funded by George Soros and out of state interest groups who are seeking to manipulate the court system in order to benefit the Democratic Party.
“Public polling suggests that three quarters of Virginians support our photo ID law because the measure just makes sense. It protects the rights of individuals and the integrity of the democratic process. More than a dozen states have enacted photo ID laws, which have been upheld by the United States Supreme Court on multiple occasions. I am completely confident this law will withstand this disingenuous challenge.”
