Former Attorney General Eric Holder is warning people of the danger of the powerful influence of conservative politicians. Calling the modern American political landscape a “political apartheid system,” Holder pointed out that conservatives have greater influence than their numbers would suggest.

During an interview with Washington Post Live, Holder cautioned, “a minority of the people in this country will have disproportionate amounts of power and be able to put in place things that are not supported by the majority.”

Pointing in particular to abortion rights being rolled back, the former attorney general said, “The minority [of voters] will be represented by the majority that was put on the Supreme Court by two presidents who did not win the majority of the vote because of our Electoral College.”
