Rep. Joel Kleefisch voted for absent Republicans on the floor of the chamber, and the video tape of his act went viral. Remember, these are the guys protecting the integrity of the vote, except on the floor of the assembly. That clip is included in the video below.
On top of that, the Advancement Project filed a lawsuit today challenging the states voter ID law. Al Sharpton talked to co-director Judith Browne-Dianis and the plaintiffs daughter Debra Crawford:
CapTimes: A Capitol insider tells me it’s not an uncommon practice, done by members of both parties. There are not rules that forbid casting proxy votes, as long as the legislator is present somewhere in the chamber, say, the bathroom. In addition, legislators have the opportunity to review their votes as part of the legislative process to guard against any monkey business.
But after all the GOP’s recent carping about voter fraud and the passage of the voter ID law, the video provides GOP critics with a little ammunition for payback.
