Democratic officials Wednesday launched a two-pronged attack on states with new laws requiring identification before voting, the highlight being a call to boycott Coke, Walmart and others that back a leading organization pushing for voter ID laws.
We are organizing. We are not agonizing, said Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., who is leading a parallel Democratic Congressional Campaign Committees effort to get government identification into the hands of the estimated 2-3 million Democrats who dont have one. We have staffed up, he said.
Officials from another party-backed group, Color of Change, kicked off a boycott of Coke and other financial backers of the American Legislative Exchange Council which supports new voter ID laws. Other supporters include Walmart and Koch Industries. The boycott call started with a tweet (@CocaCola is helping undermine voting rights. Tell them to stop) and a webpage. The group also has tied the Council to the Trayvon Martin shooting case.
Those efforts came on the heels of a new report released Wednesday by the Center for American Progress condemning new voter idenfication laws in Florida, Texas, Tennessee, Kansas and Wisconsin.

time to go to WalMart and buy a few cases of Coke...
This will be no different.
Their gangster tactics aren't scaring people any more.
I don’t drink coke but I’m on my way to Wallmart to buy six cases...
The Dems have hated Wal-mart since it first opened its doors.
Nothing new here.
“of the estimated 2-3 million Democrats who dont have one.”
presumably these would be dead Americans?
Someone should tell this dumbass Clyburn that 62% of blacks FAVOR voter ID laws.
African-Americans have been boycotting Coke for over a century.
Interesting that they’re only targeting a few of the states with voter ID laws.
All right, now I can go to WalMart and buy some Coke without shopping carts in my way! Libs think the isles at WalMart are one way.
Is that ture? Fill me in.
Its amazing to me that the same people who do not want documentation for voting in a general election, not only DEMAND identification in a union election, they want the voter’s choice made public.
The dead voters have proper ID,the Dems are more worried about illegals not getting to vote.
Was on my way to Walmart today anyway. Will be sure to pick up some Diet Coke while there.
I live on Coca Cola & I shop at Wal-Mart for a number of reasons. I live rural & there are 2 Wal-Marts which have a larger array of items all at ONE location for my shopping needs. With the price of fuel, I usually only shop one a month & I don’t need to be shopping at 7-9 stores to get wht I can get all at one time at Wal-Mart. I can even buy a newspaper & eat lunch at Subway or McDonald’s inside the store, where I am safe.
How does a person get medical care & get their medical records put online electronically without proper ID?????
I go to Walmart 1-2 times a week, and I've seen plenty of Coke in blacks' carts.
Boycotts are usually a childish form of retaliation.
