They cheat to win, don't they

Republicans have become so accustomed to getting away with lying, sometimes they slip up and admit the truth. Take this Pennsylvania Republican who admitted in public Voter ID laws are really about suppressing the votes of Democrats.
House Majority Leader Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) suggested that the House’s end game in passing the Voter ID law was to benefit the GOP politically. [...]

“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.”
Guy was talking to the home crowd at a Republican gathering and apparently forgot not everyone in the room was a mindless supporter. It's a damning admission but don't expect to see it on the nightly news. They don't have any way to play the false equivalency game with that quote so they'll just ignore it.
