Earlier this year, Mike Turzai, leader of Republicans in the Pennsylvania Assembly boasted that the new voter ID passed “is going to allow governor Romneyto win the state of Pennsylvania now.” About 758,00 Pennsylvanians did not have valid photo cards. This means if this law was legal about 9% of voters could not vote in 2012.
Alas for Mitt, alas for Republicans, Judge Robert Simpson issued an injunction on the photo card requuirement. His injunction will only last for this election even though he personally thinks it is OK. The Republican nightmare is that ALL Americans can vote. Gee, I thought the Tea Party wanted to return to old American values such as all can vote.
