Toomey defends Pennsylvania voter ID law

Sen. Pat Toomey (R) defended his state's controversial voter ID legislation, telling the Washington Post that critics who claim the law disenfranchises voters without the proper photo ID cards are misguided.

"The law makes it easy for someone to get an ID," he said. "It's going to be easy for anybody who wants to to vote, as it should be. But it's going to be a little bit harder for the system to lose integrity." 

Toomey (R-Pa.) spoke with The Post's Nia-Malika Henderson in Tampa, Fla.
