The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported a few problems with voter information and drivers license information. This brought out the voter fraud sharks, generally frightened Republicans, calling for tossing the bums out.
One in five voters who registered to vote this month do not match driver's license records, state officials said today. Between Aug. 6 and Tuesday, 22% of voters who registered did not match driver records.
So that prompted a call to disqualify 22% of the voters. Fraud apparently is rampant.
“Republicans urged the board to take a harder line to make sure they prevent
fraud. Democrats argued such a stance would prevent legitimate voters from
It’s so simple to these knuckleheads. If the records don’t match, you don’t get to vote. It’s like living in a perfect world where nothing can ever go wrong: the Republican economy, the Iraq war, Cheney’s energy plan, deregulation and health care. Oh sure, Wisconsin Republicans might have been told that:
“Many of those matches are likely typos or other problems, such as someone
appearing under a name and a nickname - David and Dave, for instance - in
different state databases, transposed numbers, missing middle initials.”
… but that’s not the point. You should have anticipated the database problems by getting a state ID. Fortunately, smarter heads prevailed.
The Government Accountability Board couldn't agree on what to do about voters
whose information doesn't match other records, and so decided, 5-1, not to
require voters to show ID at the polls if they don't correct that information.
Creating Wisconsin's voter database faced significant delays and wasn't fully
functional until earlier this month.
It’s funny the GOP wants smaller government and no gun owner data base, but salivate over a public data base where everyone’s personal information can be tapped instantly by Homeland Security without a warrant. Why am I trying to make sense out of all this? Maybe they just want to drive us crazy with inconsistencies?
Voter fraud lives on to thwart the poor and picked on Republican Party again.
