Since the restrictive Voter ID law in WI has been temporarily revoked, the GOP is doing all they can to suppress the Democratic vote, both legally and illegally. Legal or illegal - their latest actions have been morally questionable:
On Sunday reports started to come in from all around Wisconsin that those canvassing for Governor Scott Walker were informing residents that if they had signed a recall petition there was no need for them to vote on Tuesday - as their signature was their vote.
shortly afterwords, automated calls, also known as" robo" calls, began inundating Wisconsin residents with the same misinformation - telling them that their signature on a recall petition WAS their vote in the gubernatorial election.
In response to the robocalls Tom Barrett said, "This is a disgusting attack on our democracy and we need your help to fight back. Post this photo to your Facebook timeline and tell your friends that we need every eligible voter to cast a ballot."
Also, The "King Street Patriots," a group of Texas extremists, have arrived in Wisconsin. They believe that voter registration for the poor is "un-American," and would "destroy the country." They already came to Wisconsin once and intimidated recall petition signers -- and now they've dropped so-called "election observers" into polling locations across the state.
And last but not least, Republican Attorney General and Scott Walker bromancer, J.B. Van Hollen announced that he would also be sending field teams to "monitor" polls in mostly Democratic wards.
While the Republicans are sending out mindless liars to thwart democracy and suppress the vote, Democrats are knocking on doors and asking people to go out and vote.
While Republicans send out their clone troopers and strong-armed thugs to intimidate minorities at the polls, the Democrats are sending out moms and their kids, grandparents and their grandchildren and thousands of volunteers (from within the state) to knock and doors and ask people to vote Tuesday.
What a remarkable difference in tactics! One party wants only certain groups of white-washed WASPS to vote and will do anything to suppress the opposition, while one group wants as many people as possible to vote.
Voting should be the easiest thing you do to express your freedom and rights as an American, but not according to the GOP. According to the GOP, in order to vote, you should have to look a certain way, pray to a certain God, believe only certain passages from the Bible, while ignoring others, be a homophobic bigot, have certain colored skin, believe inly certain aspects of science while ignoring others, listen to certain radio stations and watch only certain cable news networks.
Scott Walker may not be personally responsible for the latest disgusting actions by these special interest groups who are lying to the people of WI, but the groups are backing Walker - And the rotten apple does not fall far from the tree.
With GOP-dunce JB Van Hollen as Attorney General, no doubt he will let the "people" behind this disgusting act of voter suppression gone wild to escape shall we say, "Scott-Free" back to whatever southern state or suburban McMansion they slithered in from.
p.s. Go vote Tuesday - no matter what you believe...
