Friday quiz: Name the voting rights crusader

Which champion of voting rights said the following yesterday?

I'm disappointed at the lengths people will go to disenfranchise voters and to win at any cost.
  • Al Gore, recalling voting irregularities in Florida in 2000
  • John Kerry, recalling voting problems in Ohio in 2004
  • Hillary Clinton, complaining about the plight of primary voters in Michigan and Florida
Would you believe Jim Ogonowski? That's right, a Republican is concerned about the disenfranchisement of voters. Of course, he's worried about opponents disqualifying his voters. But still, it's refreshing to see a Republican in favor of growing the voter pool. I'm looking forward to his fervent support of same-day voter registration, mail-in voting, and strong opposition to identification requirements.



Edited to correct the spelling of "Ogonowski."
