GOP LIES ABOUT VOTER SUPPRESSION:

Governor Chris Christie: Same-Day Voter Registration Is a “Trick”

Christie: “Republicans need to win gubernatorial races this year so that they’re the ones controlling ‘voting mechanisms’ going into the next presidential election.”

Christie complained that Illinois would become the 11th state to permit same-day voter registration this November calling it an underhanded Democratic get-out-the-vote tactic.

Christie: “I see the stuff that’s going on. Same-day registration all of a sudden this year comes to Illinois. Shocking. I’m sure it was all based upon public policy, good public policy to get same-day registration here in Illinois just this year, when the governor is in the toilet and needs as much help as he can get.” He added that the voter registration program is designed to be a major “obstacle” for Republican gubernatorial candidates.

Fran Millar: Georgia Senator Complains About Polling Place Being Too Convenient for Black Voters = promised to put an end to Sunday balloting in DeKalb County

Millar: “[T]his location is dominated by African-American shoppers and it is near several large African-American mega churches such as New Birth Missionary Baptist… Is it possible church buses will be used to transport people directly to the mall since the poll will open when the mall opens? If this happens, so much for the accepted principle of separation of church and state.”

Doug Pries, An Ohio GOP Chair:

“I guess I really actually feel we shouldn’t contort the voting process to accommodate the urban — read African-American — voter-turnout machine.” (And yes, he actually said “read African-American,” that wasn’t inserted.)

Greg Abbott: Texas AG Says Partisan Districting Decisions Are Legal, Even if There Are “Incidental Effects” on Minority Voters

FACT: 2010 Census = 89% of Texas population growth came from minorities, but “when it came to fitting those new seats in the map, Republican lawmakers made sure three of them favored Republicans, who tend to be white,”

Abbott wrote: “DOJ’s accusations of racial discrimination are baseless. In 2011, both houses of the Texas Legislature were controlled by large Republican majorities, and their redistricting decisions were designed to increase the Republican Party’s electoral prospects at the expense of the Democrats. It is perfectly constitutional for a Republican-controlled legislature to make partisan districting decisions, even if there are incidental effects on minority voters who support Democratic candidates.”

Ted Yoho: Only Property Owners Should Vote

Yoho: “I’ve had some radical ideas about voting and it’s probably not a good time to tell them, but you used to have to be a property owner to vote.” He also called early voting by absentee ballots “a travesty.”

Don Yelton: North Carolina GOP Precinct Chair: Voter ID Law Will “Kick Democrats in the Butt” and Hurt “Lazy Blacks”

Yelton: “there’s enough voter fraud to sway zero elections. Mmmm…that’s not the point….if it hurts a bunch of lazy blacks that want the government to give them everything, so be it. The law is going to kick the Democrats in the butt.”
