Wisconsin GOP Pol Reveals Real Reason for Voter ID

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.”

Whether it be voter ID, voter caging or Crosscheck – they’ll always claim that it’s to protect you from “voter fraud.” As we well know, voter fraud, is itself a fraud. Find out how you can protect your vote by downloading our comic book – Steal Back Your Vote!  And make sure that you support our film on all the ways that they’re trying to steal, buy, or trash your vote – The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
