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. Why? Because it’s just simple. The people most apt to not have a photo identification? The elderly and non-whites.
The head of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, Republican Mike Turzai, admitted (among other things) that:
Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.
This is disgusting. Turzai, you should resign. And any laws you helped pass – including the voter ID one – should be thrown out. You’re a coward, rigging the fight so it’s not a fair one.
