He is either one slimy politician, or one sick puppy.
Either way the statement made by the Governor of Wisconsin is a slap to the people of this state.
“I’ve always thought in this state, close elections, presidential elections, it means you probably have to win with at least 53 percent of the vote to account for fraud. One or two points, potentially … I mean there’s no question why they went to court and fought (to undo) voter ID.”
You have to be kidding me with this BS!
Scott Walker is trotting out the same slop that others in his party have tried to spin into a narrative that is supposed to make citizens feel fondly about suppressing the vote in Wisconsin.
Problem is there is no truth to the lies–bold out-right lies–that Scott Walker is spewing about vote fraud in this state. That his “Christian’ lips can utter such lies make me think his religion is more a prop than a life-altering experience.
So Scotty, let me set you, and your wayward friends straight.
There is not now, nor has there ever been, a long list of offenders when it comes to election fraud in the Badger State. In fact, there are very few such cases that can be held up as an example. But to hear Walker tell the story one would think that nothing but pure mayhem is lurking about at polling places. I can state no such mayhem ever was seen by myself when working the polls. I hear of no such reports from my friends who work the polls. The Attorney General can not produce evidence of such nefarious activity either!
This is pure BS from Walker.
Let us look at the numbers.
There were 2.2 million votes cast in the 2010 election for governor, and it’s reasonable to assume that turnout on June 5 will be close to 2.2 million again. Each percentage point represents 22,000 votes. Since Walker believes he needs 53 percent, he is alleging 66,000 fraudulent votes will be cast next week.
If there are so many examples of voter fraud why can’t the conservatives come up with a quick list of 100? If there are 66,000 why not produce court records for 1,000?
There are no such lists of voting offenders, because vote fraud is nothing more than a political gimmick ginned up the desperate partisans on the nutty right-wing side of the spectrum who fear the electorate is onto their games.
Walker owes the citizens of Wisconsin an apology for making the statement he did about their civic-mindedness and integrity.
