The young rising star on the political scene, Madison Kimery, appeared on Politics Nation with Al Sharpton and explained why she is out there fighting for voting rights in North Carolina!
The most important issue for her is the ability for 16 and 17 year-olds to be able to pre-register to vote. NC Governor Pat McCrory recently signed a sweeping voter suppression bill that removed and restricts many of the voting rights that were in place, including pre-registration.
Madison started a petition last summer, before the bill was signed into law, and she requested a sit down with McCrory to discuss why pre-registration was important. The petition has over 12 thousand signatures and when asked about her request, McCrory wrote it off as “ridiculous” and called Madison a “liberal prop.”
A recent video of Madison speaking to an enthusiastic crowd went viral and is helping to shine a spotlight on this amazing, articulate young girl.
Pat McCrory picked on the wrong girl.
