Rand Paul Backtracks on Voter ID

Rand Paul wants to clarify recent criticism about the Republican focus on voter ID laws. Last week the senator said it was "wrong for Republicans to go too crazy on this issue because it's offending people." But speaking to Sean Hannity on Tuesday, Paul said his comments got wrongly overblown. “I know about voter fraud and that there have to be rules and states have the ability to do it,” Paul said. “But I’ve also said Republicans should be emphasizing the good things we’re trying to do to try to help minorities vote instead of the things many minorities feel is directed at them, rightly or wrongly."
