Our friends at PoliticsPA have reported on a statement that House Majority Leader, State Rep Mike Turzai made at the Republican State Committee meeeting this past weekend. Here is what he said:
“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.”
A couple of things to say here. One, so the abortion facility regulations were not, as was claimed at the time, about making legal procedures safer, but intended as decreasing access to legal procedures. That's what I suspected but it's nice to have formal verification.
Second, so much for VoterID being about voter fraud.
