Republican Milwaukee Supervisor Sends Out False Information About Need For Voter ID
This is a voter suppression tactic as capper at Crooks and Liars notes.
Milwaukee County Supervisor Deanna Alexander is a Republican’s Republican.
Alexander won her office with a late race-baiting flier against her African American opponent. She’s appeared at CPAC, was named a “rising star” by dark money group American Majority, illegally accepted free legal representation from a Bradley Foundation funded lawyer, supports gay bashing Chick Fil A and has accused Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis of supporting infanticide.
Yeah, she’s a real pip, alright.
So it comes as no surprise to us in Milwaukee that she used taxpayer money to mail out 7,000 copies of her newsletter which included the information that a photo ID would be needed to vote on Election Day:
[su_center_ad]The first problem with this is the fact that US Supreme Court blocked the implementation of this voter suppression law for this election…
Despite the fact that it cost taxpayers thousands of dollars to send out the original mailer and thousands of dollars more to send out the correction, I have a feeling that we won’t hear from the conservatives about this waste and fraud.
For me, the unanswered question is that why Alexander sent out only 7,000 of these mailers when she represents more than 50,000 people. You don’t suppose that these mailers were targeted at a certain class of voters, do you?[su_csky_ad]
