Voter ID Would Have Allowed Romney To Win Wisconsin Says Campaign Co-Chair

Romney campaign co-chair and Wisconsin state senator, Alberta Darling, said that voter ID would have allowed Mitt Romney to win her state. TPM reports:

Alberta Darling - AP PhotoVoter ID “absolutely” would have made a difference in the outcome of the election, state Sen. Alberta Darling (R) told Mike Gousha of WISN on Sunday. She suggested that voter fraud helped President Barack Obama win the state.

“We’re looking at all sorts of different precincts and all sorts of same-day registrations,” Darling said. “I know people will go, ‘We don’t have fraud and abuse in our elections.’ But why, why can’t we have voter ID when the majority of our people in Wisconsin wanted it, we passed it, the governor signed it? Why should one judge in Dane County be able to hold it up?” – Romney Co-Chair: Voter ID Would Have Won Us Wisconsin, TPM

Keep in mind that President Obama won Wisconsin by nearly 7 percent. And if you look at the county election map for Wisconsin, you will see Obama won half the counties, which means he didn’t just win in major urban centers. Out of the over three million votes cast in Wisconsin, over 200,000 would need to be fraudulent to make up for Obama’s margin of victory in the state. State Senator Alberta Darling needs to focus a little less attention on conservative bubble nonsense and instead put a lot more emphasis on reality and a little thing called arithmetic.
