What happens when a state passes a Voter ID law? Generally, it is intended to make it more difficult to commit voter fraud. And, the general rule of thumb is that a Republican has to win by over one to two percentage points to overcome fraud. So, putting that all together, reducing fraud would allow a Republican a greater chance of winning.
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.
So then, who exactly does this prevent from voting? Well, people voting in the name of the dead would have a hard time pulling it off. Of course, does that then mean that zombies are a key Democrat Party demographic? Or is it illegal aliens, or even illegal alien zombies?
I’ll let you be the judge.
