PA GOP Leader: Voter ID Laws Will "Allow Gov. Romney To Win"

Though Republicans contend that they are pushing for voter ID laws to combat "fraud," such cases are extremely rare. That didn't keep Gov. Rick Scott of Florida from pursuing his purges–and not surprisingly, most of those targeted have been black or Hispanic. Now Pennsylvania Republican House Leader Mike Turzai let slip the real aim: voter suppression of Democratic constituents to benefit Romney and the GOP. After running through a list of GOP victories at a Republican State Committee meeting, Turzai said, "Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.” Watch:



TURZAI: We are focused on making sure that we meet our obligations that we’ve talked about for years. Pro-Second Amendment? The Castle Doctrine, it’s done. First pro-life legislation – abortion facility regulations – in 22 years, done. Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done. (h/t: Think Progress)
