Transcript:

1:43:00 Rep. Elijah Cummings (MD): One year ago today when my mother’s dying bed at 92 years old, former sharecropper, her last words were, do not let them take our votes away from us. They had fought, she had fought and seen people harmed and beaten, trying to vote. Talk about inalienable rights. Voting is crucial, and I don’t give a damn how you look at it. There are efforts to stop people from voting. That’s not right. This is not Russia. This is the United States of America, and I will fight until the death to make sure every citizen, whether they’re Green party, whether they’re Freedom Party, whether they’re Democrat, whether you’re Republican, whoever has that right to vote.
