Not voter suppression

It is not voter “suppression.”(From the Publisher/August) It is voter integrity. Wake up, man. 

Voter ID is simply common sense. If I can get an ID to drive, get an apartment, earn a paycheck and pay taxes, I can sure as hell get a voter ID. This is to fend off voter fraud – simple as that.

The Constitution calls for a one day vote in a booth within a person's precinct. What exactly is suppressing anyone with these common sense policies? 

Enlighten me, please.
