Mike Turzai admits GOP voter ID to suppress
Republican State Representative Mike Turzai Of Pennsylvania admitted that the voter ID laws were several of the required steps necessary to make Mitt Romney win Pennsylvania. This is something all Democrats knew even as Republicans kept denying it. PolitcsPA reports,
House Majority Leader Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) suggested that the House’s end game in passing the Voter ID law was to benefit the GOP politically.
“We are focused on making sure that we meet our obligations that we’ve talked about for years,” said Turzai in a speech to committee members Saturday. He mentioned the law among a laundry list of accomplishments made by the GOP-run legislature.
“Pro-Second Amendment? The Castle Doctrine, it’s done. First pro-life legislation – abortion facility regulations – in 22 years, done. Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”
The statement drew a loud round of applause from the audience. It also struck a nerve among critics, who called it an admission that they passed the bill to make it harder for Democrats to vote — and not to prevent voter fraud as the legislators claimed.
The reality is that there is not voter fraud of any consequence in America. The only potential fraud is in the machines that tally the votes with absolutely no traceability.
Ironically the manufacturers of these machines have generally had an affinity for the Republican Party. Maybe we should consider having VOTER MACHINE ID to ensure they are tallying the votes correctly and that they are not fraudulently giving elections to Republicans.
Giving that a vote for Republicans in these times are generally a vote against the middle class, and given that we must assume that the middle class will not disproportionately vote against its own interest, maybe that is where fraud is to be found.
