Texas Republicans Attempting To Slam Six Week Abortion Ban Through Legislature During Special Session
Remember all that conspiracy around the election when Democrats were saying that Republicans were trying to suppress democratic voters and Republicans were all, "Naw, mang, we just really care about voter fraud from predominantly minority populations." But then officials kept accidentally spilling the beans on the true intent, like Pennsylvania GOP House Leader Mike Turzai who said that the new voter ID law, "is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania." Whoopsie.
