This amazingly partisan article got a few good chuckles out of me. Notice how Democrats are “ramming” legislation through, unlike the Scott Walker Republican legislature with voter ID. The Democratic push back in Colorado is refreshing and encouraged:
Free Beacon: Colorado’s Democratic-controlled state legislature is ramming through an election bill that critics say will open the door to voter fraud and intimidation.
The “Voter Access and Modernized Elections Act” is under consideration amid accusations that Republicans in other states have tried to suppress the vote by passing laws that require some form of identification in order to vote. The Colorado law would make mail-in ballots mandatory while eliminating local polling places and allowing people to vote on the same day they register.
Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, a Republican who has been an outspoken opponent of the bill said the two main provisions of the bill are “a recipe for fraud” … Wisconsin and Minnesota both have same day registration, and they have both seen large problems with fraud, Gessler said.
Really? Gessler does know that people in Wisconsin can read his ridiculous comments through one of the many internet tubes we can access? Another blog post will deal with outright Republican hypocrisy on recall elections based on one issue. Namely, guns.
