Former U.S. Marine Turned Away From TN Poll For Refusing to Present Photo ID Under New GOP Law

55-year old former U.S. Marine Tim Thompson was turned away from the polls today, Super Tuesday 2012, in the state of Tennessee, after refusing to present a photo ID before voting, as required by a new law recently passed by Republicans.

"This is my voter registration card," Thompson said as he challenged the poll supervisor. "I've used this for 37 years. This was good enough for my father. This was good enough for my grandfather, and I refuse to show you a picture ID"...

After refusing to vote on a provisional ballot, which may or may not be counted after an election, Thompson tells the supervisor, "I'm objecting to the law that they implemented on my right to vote."

"I served my country. I served my country so you can vote. I've earned my right to vote. This is my ID," he is seen explaining angrily in the video, as he points to the U.S. Marine insignia on his jacket.

"I'll be damned if I'll stand here and allow you to not let me vote because some governor of this state decided he wanted to eliminate my right to vote --- and put conditions on it --- that I fought for."
