    Romney Co-Chair: Voter ID Would Have Won Us Wisconsin

    A state senator who served as co-chair of Mitt Romney’s Wisconsin campaign suggested this week that the Republican presidential nominee would have carried the state if a voter ID law had been in place.

    Voter ID “absolutely” would have made a difference in the outcome of the election, state Sen. Alberta Darling (R) told Mike Gousha of WISN on Sunday. She suggested that voter fraud helped President Barack Obama win the state.

    Obama won by 200,000 votes or 6% of the vote. That is a heck of a lot of "fraud".

    And this from Senator Darling:

    "But why, why can’t we have voter ID when the majority of our people in Wisconsin wanted it, we passed it, the governor signed it? Why should one judge in Dane County be able to hold it up?".
    HAHAHAHAHA! The majority of people in Wisconsin did not want it (or the $16 million price tag) but, yes, you passed it anyway and, of course, Scott Walker signed it: voter id is part of the ALEC agenda. Illegal laws are passed all the time and that is why we have three branches of government.

    Check the Wisconsin constitution if you are unclear on the answer to the question "why should one judge in Dane County be able to hold it up?". It is called "judicial review" and thank goodness not all of the judges in Wisconsin are like the state Supreme Court's majority: owned by Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce.

    Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.
