TPM reports that a disillusioned ex-GOP staffer has confirmed that voter ID is a con and a fraud. An excerpt (emphasis added):
While Schultz, Allbaugh’s former boss, has notably spoken out against more recent restrictions on voting, he voted for the 2011 bill. According to Allbaugh, at this point in the point of meeting, Schultz brought up his own concerns with the voter ID legislation.
“He was immediately shot down by another senator who said, ‘What I am interested in is getting results here and using the power while we have it, because if the Democrats were in control they would do they same thing to us, so I want to use it while we have it,’” Allbaugh said.
Allbaugh said Schultz left the meeting in frustration after that, while he stayed behind to continue taking notes.
“It left a pit in my stomach to think that a party that I had worked for for years and years and years was literally talking and plotting to deny someone, a fellow citizen, their constitutional right,” Allbaugh said.
That, of course, surprises no one who has been paying attention. What is notable is that Republicans are starting to admit it, some inadvertently and some, as in this case, shamefacedly.

Speaking of voter fraudsters . . . .
