    Penn. Republican House Majority Leader Mike Turzai finally confirmed what many people suspect about why Republicans are clamoring for voter identification laws:

    “We are focused on making sure that we meet our obligations that we’ve talked about for years,” said Turzai in a speech to committee members Saturday. He mentioned the law among a laundry list of accomplishments made by the GOP-run legislature.

    “Pro-Second Amendment? The Castle Doctrine, it’s done. First pro-life legislation – abortion facility regulations – in 22 years, done. Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.

    It's not about maintaining the sanctity of the voting booth. It's about getting a Republican into the Oval Office.
