Wisconsin GOP Senator: Voter ID Law Would Help Romney

Recently Pennsylvania Republican House Leader Mike Turzai said that voter ID laws will allow Mitt Romney to win in his state. Also looking forward to the results of GOP voter suppression is Republican State Senate Minority Assistant Leader Glenn Grothman of Wisconsin. Grothman supported the voter ID law, which deprives citizens of their voting rights in his state. The law was blocked by a state judge, but Grothman hopes it will be upheld by November, since it would help Romney. Grothman explained to Scott Keyes of Think Progress, "...people who vote inappropriately are more likely to vote Democrat.” Listen:

KEYES: If it were upheld and in place in time for the November election, do you think — polls have shown a pretty razor-thin margin — do you think it might ultimately help Romney’s campaign here in the state?

GROTHMAN: Yes. Right. I think we believe that insofar as there are inappropriate things, people who vote inappropriately are more likely to vote Democrat.

KEYES: So if these protections are in place of voter ID, that might ultimately help him in a close race?

GROTHMAN: Right. I think if people cheat, we believe the people who cheat are more likely to vote against us.

So, the only appropriate votes are those for Republicans? I swear these clowns have got to have a book of "Dumb Things To Say Today" that they refer to each day. They do not seem smart enough to come up with so much stupid all by themselves.

Hi there Jeff. You surviving the heat of summer?

We got the news yesterday that the city of Tampa will essentially be off limits to all but the heathens this August.

Major roads into and out of the city will be closed. Restaurants and attractions, including the aquarium and history museum, will be closed to the public.

Downtown businesses are giving their employees an unpaid 3 or 4 day vacation because access to the city, not to mention lack of parking, will be the order of the week.

What fun!

Hi Jon,

I suppose I've been an "inappropriate" voter my entire life.

It's not as bad in NY as it was earlier.

Quite an inconvenience about Tampa. Is there anything that Rick Scott can do to rectify the situation? ; )

Good to hear from you, as always!
