NC Governor: 'We Didn't Shorten Early Voting, We Compacted the Calendar'
Views:

In today's edition of Republicans saying stupid things, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory came out with this one when asked by MSNBC's Chuck Todd about recent voter suppression efforts in his state. Included in the voter ID bill McCrory signed into law in August, they also reduced the number of early voting days from 17 to 10. His response was typical cynical Republican Doublespeak.

PAT MCCRORY: "First of all, we didn't shorten early voting, we compacted the calendar. But we're going to have the same hours in which polls are open in early voting, and we're going to have more polls available. So it's going to be almost identical. It's just the schedule has changed. The critics are kind of using that line when in fact, the legislation does not shorten the hours for early voting."
