Mike Turzai, the Pennsylvania GOP House majority leader, said that a strict new voter ID law will help Republicans win the state for the first time since 1988:
"Pro-Second Amendment? The Castle Doctrine, it’s done!
First pro-life legislation -- abortion facility regulations -- in 22 years, done! Voter ID, which is going to allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done!"
Turzai said to applause at a Republican State Committee this weekend.
The comment contradicted the usual Republican line that voter ID laws are for guarding against voter fraud -- which is extremely rare if not nonexistent in practice -- and not to help elect Republicans. Pennsylvania passed a new law in March through its GOP legislature requiring voters to show a driver's license or government issued photo ID before voting.
