Wisconsin Rep. Brags About Voter ID Helping Republicans Win In November

Glenn Grothman just had to go there.

Remember the Pennsylvania state representative who bragged in 2012 that their voter suppression law would deliver the state for Romney? Well, meet Rep. Glenn Grothman, a Wisconsin wingnut who actually brags that the Wisconsin voter suppression laws will help deliver the state to whoever the Republican nominee is.

When asked why 2016 would be any different for the Republican nominee than other years have been, Grothman told his interviewer, "Now we have photo ID, and I think photo ID is going to make a little bit of a difference as well."

In other words, Mr. Interviewer, because Republicans in Wisconsin have worked terribly hard to suppress the votes of the poor, students, and people of color, Republicans might win?

I wouldn't hold my breath on that one.
