Showdown In Wisconsin: DOJ Monitoring Election
Typical Democrat strategy, why wait until the votes are counted? We already know we want a recount, if we don't win! "Wisconsin recall: Democrats prepare for recall recount" That's the mark of a sore losers party; Democrats are that. Sadly, their whiny persistence does pay off on the margins. Politics is getting increasingly worse in America.
Today is the day and I can't say I'm thrilled about this development. The right doesn't have much faith in Holder's DOJ for good reason. Can you say, Fast and Furious?
Wisconsin is one of four states whose elections the U.S. Justice Department is monitoring to ensure against discrimination. The federal officials will be monitoring the elections to make sure they comply with the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Frankly, the entire thing is a fiasco, with much of it going ignored beneath the headlines.
Also on the ballot today are five other Republican seats up for recall: the offices of lieutenant governor and four state senators. The possible outcomes are complicated and in some cases could leave the state’s voters with no consensus on which parties’ policies they prefer.
The polls in Wisconsin are now open. Like many, I'll continue to monitor events as they unfold.
