Amazingly, sometimes in politics the truth is uttered

Remember what we've been telling you, that voter ID laws are just a way for Republicans - once they've gained political power - to game future elections in their favor. You know else is telling you that? Republicans.

Amazingly, sometimes in politics the truth is uttered

Remember what we've been telling you, that voter ID laws are just a way for Republicans -- once they've gained political power -- to game future elections in their favor. You know else is telling you that? Republicans. Right here in the Keystone State:

Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai (R) said that the voter ID law passed by the legislature would help deliver the state for Mitt Romney in November.

“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,” Turzai said at this weekend’s Republican State Committee meeting , according to PoliticsPA.com.

A spokesman for Turzai confirmed the accuracy of the quote for TPM but argued that people were reading too much into it.

That settles that, I guess. Next? How about admitting that vouchers are a plot to destroy public education?
