GOP voting reforms just another word for suppressing Democratic votes

The real GOP agenda behind Florida's voting "reforms" was revealed today. Shocking no one, it turns out nobody gives a flying leap about virtually non-existent voter fraud. The newly revamped Florida voting laws were designed solely to suppress Democratic votes:
Former Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer says he attended various meetings, beginning in 2009, at which party staffers and consultants pushed for reductions in early voting days and hours.

“The Republican Party, the strategists, the consultants, they firmly believe that early voting is bad for Republican Party candidates,” Greer told The Post. “It’s done for one reason and one reason only. … ‘We’ve got to cut down on early voting because early voting is not good for us,’ ” Greer said he was told by those staffers and consultants.

“They never came in to see me and tell me we had a (voter) fraud issue,” Greer said. “It’s all a marketing ploy.”
Okay. Greer is a crook and has a reason to exact revenge against the Republicans, you say. But this was also confirmed by former Gov. Charlie Crist. Yeah, I know. He quit the GOP so he's not that neutral either. But consider the possibility this was one reason he quit. And then there's the "two veteran GOP campaign consultants" who also confirmed the GOP's blatant supression scam. And they have everything to lose by confirming this anti-democratic scam.

Of course, we knew that already. So the question becomes, what are Republicans going to do next to try to steal elections? Considering 37 states are now totally under one party control, with 24 of them being controlled by Republicans, the possibilities are ugly to contemplate.

Also, too, 24 states voted to let GOPers run the place? What the hell is wrong with people? [Phillip Pessar photo]
