But don’t take my word for it – that’s what one of the top Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania just admitted.

Several studies including one by the Brennan Center for Justice have found that Voter ID laws will take the right to vote away from tens of millions of Americans who currently don’t have IDs, like low-income, minority, or elderly voters – people who tend to vote for Democrats.
