(CNS News) -- When asked whether people should be required to produce an ID in order to vote, just as they must produce an ID to buy alcohol, Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) said, "Sure."

At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, CNS News asked the senator, “Should someone have to show an ID to buy alcohol?”

Tuberville said, “Sure.”

When CNS News asked, “And what about to vote?” the senator said, "Sure."

Senate bill S.1, the For the People Act, would have allowed the federal government to override all state voter ID laws. The measure was successfully filibustered by the Republicans on Tuesday, June 22, preventing the bill from moving forward in the Senate.
