US Justice Department to monitor Tuesday's election in Wisconsin
Wisconsin State Journal ^ | 4-2-12

Posted on 04/02/2012 2:20:26 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

The U.S. Justice Department says it is dispatching observers to watch over Wisconsin's presidential primary on Tuesday.

The Justice Department said Monday its poll watchers will be in Milwaukee to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and other federal voting rights laws.

The Voting Rights Act prohibits discrimination in the election process on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group. Milwaukee is required under the law to provide assistance to Spanish-speaking voters.

The Justice Department sends hundreds federal observers to monitor elections around the country every year.

Wisconsin US Justice Department observing Tuesday’s election ping

FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.

I wonder why they are not going to observe how the election is conducted in Dane County? Remember, these are Holder’s folks observing thhis election. They turn a blind eye to infractions that most folks would find objectionable.

Because we have no voter fraud here and we don’t need no stinkin photo IDs — sarc/off

They’ll probably arrest any poll worker who looks at a photo ID...

We have voter ID laws here in Michigan now too and there hasn’t been a peep out of the administration about it.

We also have a tough as nails secretary of state who is dotting all the Is and crossing all the Ts.

Absolutely. Note they are going to be monitoring the wards where they generally have the most trouble with bogus registrations, etc. No law will be enforced I’m sure.

Will Eric Holder— or Obama ask the New Black Panthers to be the ones monitoring things?Everyone knows blacks and Democrats can’t commit voter fraud or a Hate Crime.That side of the House divided against itself can do no crime -not even Fast and Furious kind of crime nor Islamic Jihad kind of crime.But they sure do benefit from such—eh?
