Wisconsin Congressman Admits Voter ID Law Will Help GOP Nominee Win In November

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/wisconsin-voter-id-2016_us_5704a2eee4b0a506064d90cf



Kinda like the election is stolen before it even starts.


Right!


In a moment of extraordinary honesty, a GOP congressman from Wisconsin said a new voter ID law will help the eventual Republican presidential nominee win the state in November.

Rep. Glenn Grothman’s prediction, made in response to questions about Tuesday’s primaries in the state, gave credence to critics of voter ID laws who say they are tools used by conservatives to disenfranchise the poor and minorities, many of whom vote for Democrats.

Grothman told WTMJ-4’s Charles Benson that despite past GOP candidates’ poor showings in the Badger State, this year will be different. “Now we have photo ID, and I think photo ID is gonna make a little bit of a difference as well,” he said.


P.S. By all means, continue to argue about whether or not you will vote in November.

Just as we know most young voters support us but won't bother to vote, ID or no. As Bernie knew the DNC would give special support to its most promising candidate. As Hillary knew going in that she was both the most admired and the most hated woman in America and nothing she could do would change that. We all work with what we have.

for the sole purpose of making it harder for Democrats to win.

We dont have a democracy at the moment.
