Truth: Florida GOP tried to suppress Minority Voters

I knew it and you probably did too. GOP leaders in Florida admitted to some voter foolishness.

According to Former Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer, the GOP tried to suppress the vote in Florida.
Former Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer says he attended various meetings, beginning in 2009, at which party staffers and consultants pushed for reductions in early voting days and hours. 
“The Republican Party, the strategists, the consultants, they firmly believe that early voting is bad for Republican Party candidates,” Greer told The Post. “It’s done for one reason and one reason only. … ‘We’ve got to cut down on early voting because early voting is not good for us,’ ” Greer said he was told by those staffers and consultants.“They never came in to see me and tell me we had a (voter) fraud issue,” Greer said. “It’s all a marketing ploy.”
And there's more, please check out the rest of the post... MESS!

The only true surprise is that they're admitting it.

Let's remember this GOP obstruction campaign isn't limited solely to Florida.
