Please limit discussion in this area to local and state politics.

SHOW ME THE PROOF! :lol: :lol:

This is a great example of why I keep posting on leftist forums--to show their leftist lunar logic in action.

Thanks. :D It's always my pleasure.

New survey by the Pew Charitable Trust shows that 63,000 eligible voters in Milwaukee County alone lack the kind of ID that would be required to vote.
The findings also revealed the rates of inadequate identification were significantly higher than the countywide figure among minorities but lower among white voters:

* 14.9 percent of eligible and 11.3 percent of registered Latinos.
* 13.2 percent of eligible and 15.3 percent of registered African-Americans.
* 7.4 of eligible and 6.0 percent of registered Whites.

EXCELLENT POINT! I trust you will join us in eliminating unverifiable touch screen machines and electronic tabulation methods, 2 systems already proven to have stolen elections in various states. Interesting to note that 2 guys in a strip mall in Minnesota control the votes to 46 Wisconsin counties (2,000 machines) and that Walker walked away with the election when these counties results were "tabulated." BTW, the mother-in-law (fired from her last job for refusing to take a required annual ethics examination) of one the fellows in the mall is the sole programmer for these machines.

Their company, Dominion, is the new name for ES&S, formerly Diebold. They've offered 2 free electronic machines to Wisconsin districts for every old machine turned in. That's a bit interesting, isn't it?

State Reps. Robin Vos (R-Burlington) Bob Ziegelbauer (I-Manitowoc) violated state ethic laws by accepting free legal counsel related to their efforts to join a lawsuit over the state’s Jim Crow-era voter identification legislation, according to a complaint filed today by One Wisconsin Now with the state’s Government Accountability Board.

Apparently the complaint has had an effect:
Rep. Vos Pulls Out Of Voter ID Lawsuit
Rep. Robin Vos, Assembly Republican co-chair of the powerful Joint Committee on Finance, announced late Thursday that he is withdrawing from a lawsuit regarding voter ID legislation amidst a growing ethics scandal about how legal work being done on his behalf was being paid.

One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross commented, “One Wisconsin Now filed a complaint calling for an investigation because state ethics laws are crystal clear – it is illegal for elected officials to get benefits like free legal work because of their position. Rep. Vos apparently thought the rules didn’t apply to him.”
...
Rep. Vos has refused to reveal who was paying for legal work ...


Ziegelbauer dropped out earlier.

"If" has always been such a huge word, hasn't it?

Whole worlds have changed on what supposition/conjecture that follows that little, two letter word.

[i]Algoma service center

Algoma, WI 54201

Hours: 7 a.m.-5 p.m. - Monday, Wednesday

Do you live in Algoma?

Your argument is rather silly. Did you have to search the internet long and hard for that one? Totally silly, really.

Do you know how big algoma is? If one lives there and works "normal" hours, 8-5 or 9-6, etc. one can make it to that place, get an ID, then make it to work EASILY.

Man, leftists are even too silly for themselves, and that's saying something.

And they keep on fabricating up bullshit to prop up their lunar worldview of what normal people live like.

BTW, just how does someone living in Algoma drive if they don't have a DL? Or cash a check? Or get a phone? Bank account?
OK, fish on lake fluking michigan?

Leftists are such clowns. No wonder no one takes them seriously.
Thus, no wonder they are so angry.....
