GOP Consultant: Voter ID And Long Lines "Help Our Side"

Pennsylvania Republican State Representative Mike Turzai and former Florida GOP officials Jim Greer and Charlie Crist have made statements pointing out that changes to voting laws and procedures have nothing to do with "voter fraud" and everything to do with voter suppression. On Monday, Republican consultant Scott Tranter cheerfully commented during a Pew Center panel discussion that voter ID and long lines "help our side." Watch:

TRANTER: A lot of us are campaign officials — or campaign professionals — and we want to do everything we can to help our side. Sometimes we think that’s voter ID, sometimes we think that’s longer lines — whatever it may be.
