Break: Rand Paul Denounces Voter ID Laws, Offensive to Blacks

Senator Paul of Kentucky gestures at the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor, Maryland

MEMPHIS — Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky broke Friday with fellow Republicans who have pushed for stricter voting laws as a way to crack down on fraud at the polls, saying that the focus on such measures alienates and insults African-Americans and hurts the party.

“Everybody’s gone completely crazy on this voter ID thing,” Mr. Paul said in an interview. “I think it’s wrong for Republicans to go too crazy on this issue because it’s offending people.”
