Political Rewind: Tributes Pour In For Georgia's Vernon Jordan; Battle Continues Over Voting Laws
Wednesday on Political Rewind: Reforms or restrictions? That's the question on the latest bundle of laws that would change the way Georgians vote. Voting access advocates are expressing concerns this legislation will make voting harder, and describe it as an attempt at voter suppression by state Republicans.
But first, we remember the life of civil rights leader Vernon Jordan. The Atlanta-born activist and powerbroker fought to desegregate Georgia’s universities and later served as an adviser to President Bill Clinton. He passed away Monday night at the age of 85 at his family home.
