Rep. Daryl Metcalfe: Over 750,000 Pennsylvanians “Too Lazy” To Vote

I don’t believe any legitimate voter that actually wants to exercise that right and takes on the according responsiblity that goes with that right to secure their photo ID will be disenfranchised. As Mitt Romney said, 47% of the people that are living off the public dole, living off their neighbors’ hard work, and we have a lot of people out there that are too lazy to get up and get out there and get the ID they need. If individuals are too lazy, the state can’t fix that.”

— Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R-PA), original sponsor of Pennsylvania’s strict voter ID law that would disenfranchise over 750,000 people, echoing Mitt Romney’s “inelegance” to KDA Radio, via ThinkProgress.
