“The governor said yesterday that Bob Brady should resign as chairman of the Democratic Committee in Philadelphia if he doesn’t get 50% turnout. We want to make sure that they don’t get 50%, keep that down.” — PA Gov. Tom Corbett (before he was elected Gov.)
Pennsylvaniajoins the GOP plot to suppress the Dem vote.

About even the pretense of being fair.
