All along, people “in the know” have known that the only reason Republicans push for identification to vote – putting up the laws that require showing some sort of picture ID in order to cast a ballot – have been to suppress Democratic turnout. Â Why? Â Because it’s just simple. Â The people most apt to not have a photo identification? Â The elderly and non-whites.
Today, Republicans came out and admitted it.
The head of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, Republican Mike Turzai, admitted (among other things) that:
Â Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.
This is disgusting. Â Turzai, you should resign. Â And any laws you helped pass – including the voter ID one – should be thrown out. Â You’re a coward, rigging the fight so it’s not a fair one.
