[See NewsBusters for more.] Host of The Late Show on CBS, Stephen Colbert was joined by non-voting D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton early Wednesday morning to discuss Democratic efforts to fight back against GOP election laws which, according to Colbert, are analogous to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.

Colbert declared, "In the 1960s, you fought with people like John Lewis for civil rights and for voting rights for black people. Right now, bills are being passed all around the country that will effectively disenfranchise people, especially people in minority areas or minority districts."
