Congressman's Voter ID comment goes viral

Posted at 8:22 AM, Apr 06, 2016
In an interview with TODAY'S TMJ4 Tuesday night, Wisconsin Congressman Glenn Grothman made some controversial remarks about voter ID.
Since then, the video has been retweeted more than 500 times from the TODAY'S TMJ4 Twitter page and has been picked up by several national news outlets.
When reporter Charles Benson asked if a Republican can win the presidential election in November, Grothman said:
"Well I think Hillary Clinton is about the weakest candidate that the Democrats have ever put up and now we have photo ID. I think photo ID is going to make a little bit of a difference as well."

Many are wondering what exactly he meant when he made those comments. Here's what some people on Twitter are saying:

These accusations have long been made about the voter ID law -- that it's simply a Republican attempt to keep Democrats from the polls. Republicans maintain it simply cuts down on fraud.
