Scott Brown, Voter ID supporter, frets over perceived “insult” to discrimination victims

Scott Brown is trying to work up some outrage over the fact Elizabeth Warren has claimed that her heritage is in part Native American and that, based on information she provided, she was listed by the Association of American Law Schools as a minority faculty member from 1986 to 1995. This “is an insult to all Americans who have suffered real discrimination and mistreatment,” says a Brown spokesperson.

Really. Well, since the subject of insults has been raised, what does the NAACP consider to be an insult to those who have suffered discrimination? In a report issued late last year on new barriers to the right to vote, the NAACP discussed:

The push for laws requiring voters to present valid government-issued photo identification at the polls in order to cast a ballot [, which] amounts to an effort to create a modern day poll tax and represents the heart of the modern block the vote campaign.

And who advocated for (indeed, was the lead sponsor of) Voter ID legislation in each of his three terms as a Massachusetts State Senator?
