Then again, nobody expects Jackson to say something intelligent.
(CNSNews.com) — Reverend Jesse Jackson, founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, said that long lines at Pennsylvania polling places on Election Day were a form of voter suppression.
He added that he has not seen lines like the ones at early polling places in Ohio since the election of Nelson Mandela in South Africa.
Speaking on Election Day at a press conference in Ohio, Jackson said, “But they don’t have the early voting. They only vote today in Pennsylvania, so those will be very long lines. And very long lines, while they show one sign of commitment and the legality, also [are] a form of suppression.”
