Wisconsin Republican State Senator Glenn Grothman Says His Voter ID Law Will Help Mitt Romney ‘In A Close Race’
With polls showing a surprisingly tight presidential race in Wisconsin, the state’s new voter ID law could make the difference for Mitt Romney, according to the State Senate Minority Assistant Leader Glenn Grothman (R).
Grothman helped pass voter ID in Wisconsin last year, which disenfranchises citizens who don’t bring a certain form of photo identification with them to the polls.
In an interview with ThinkProgress on Sunday, the number-two Republican senator argued that voter ID could be a boon for Republicans’ electoral prospects if the controversial law, which was recently blocked in state court, is reinstated in time for the November election. “Insofar as there are inappropriate things, people who vote inappropriately are more likely to vote Democrat,” argued Grothman.
