Al Gore: Voter suppression like 'racist Jim Crow tactics' 06 Nov 2012 Al Gore said Tuesday on Current TV that the attempt this cycle to stop people from voting has been "un-American" and a "disgrace," adding that it is a "strategy that is a direct descendent" of "racist Jim Crow tactics." Gore, who co-founded the left-leaning cable channel, said he hopes there will be a "reckoning for these governors and state legistures that have intentionally tried to prevent people from voting. It is un-American." The problem -- which he said included the long lines facing many voters, particularly in Florida -- must be addressed in a bipartisan way after the election.
