Wisconsin's voter ID law was predictable loser to everyone but Scott Walker:
WPR: Judge Adelman decided to strike down the voter ID law, saying it violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act because it disproportionately affected black and Latino voters.
Walker’s insulting “only racist call other people racist” response is dog whistle politics at its lowest.
Walker: “I think that's an insensitive comment, to imply that one group or another is more or less likely to be able to get a driver's license or photo ID card,” Walker said. “I think it's pretty clear that people—regardless of race, regardless of income—have perfectly acceptable access to getting identification in the state of Wisconsin.”
Walker's “I know you are but what am I” comeback says more about his intolerant inner child than how desperate he is to win reelection. It was also pretty clear 9%, or 300,000 Wisconsinites didn't have what Walker demanded.
And when Judge Adelman found no evidence of voter fraud in Wisconsin (big surprise), Walker went over-the-top; not even one vote canceled by fraud would be tolerated. Who knew Walker’s Voter ID law made elections error free...perfect:
“The question I have for him or anyone else is, ‘Ok, tell me, identify which person it's alright to have their vote canceled on?' Because if there's one vote cast by someone who's not legal to vote in this state, that means at least one legitimate citizen of this state has had their vote canceled out by someone who voted illegally,” Walker said.
Heck, why even have elections then? But if we counted every fearful conservative worried about having their vote canceled…see, fraud.
