Oops! Wisconsin Congressman Glenn Grothman (R-Campbellsport) gave away the nasty little weapon that Republicans plan to use in November. In an interview with WTMJ-TV at the Ted Cruz victory rally Tuesday night, he explained how Republicans can win the Blue state even if the voters prefer the Democrat.
“I think Hillary Clinton is about the weakest candidate perhaps they’ve ever put up and now we have photo ID and I think that photo ID is going to make a bit of a difference as well.”
This isn’t the first time that someone let slip the real reason behind “voter fraud” prevention laws. Back during the 2012 election, Pennsylvania House Republican Leader Mike Turzai spoke to applause celebrating the accomplishments of his party. “Voter ID, which is going to allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania… DONE.”
