Former Florida repugican leaders say voter suppression was reason they pushed new election law

From the "Tell us something we didn't know: Department:

Former repugican chair, governor - both on outs with party - say voter fraud wasn’t a concern, but reducing Democratic votes was. A new Florida law that contributed to long voter lines and caused some to abandon voting altogether was intentionally designed by Florida repugican staff and consultants to inhibit Democratic voters, former repugican officials and current repugican consultants have told The Palm Beach Post.
The repugican leaders said in proposing the law that it was meant to save money and fight voter fraud. But a former repugican chairman and former Gov. Charlie Crist, both of whom have been ousted from the party, now say that fraud concerns were advanced only as subterfuge for the law’s main purpose: repugican victory.
