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.
