  1. gulag Pittsburgh says:

    Corman can stick his “audit” and election “reform” up his ass with all the rest of his shit-for-brains ideas to destroy freedom and democracy.

  2. College Republican Hack says:

    My liberal friends want me to do blame Climate Change on white people . . . I’m thinking about it.

  3. Thomas Jefferson says:

    Senator Corman wanting social security numbers and voting records and private information of voters lends itself to ask where is this all headed? When voters surrender their privacy to political actors society begins the gradual process to eventually being questioned on who you voted for and why. It’s ironic Senator Corman was 100 percent for freedom if it meant stripping power away from Tom Wolf but he is 100 percent for taking the voter’s privacy away when it comes to his Republican Party gaining power.
