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]

    In my opinion, trying to disenfranchise voters is high treason. We need to prosecute these right wingers and teach them right from wrong with long prison sentences.

      I don’t know, they are like entrenched terrorist infecting America from within. Prison time may be unjustified, total removal may be required. Eternal sleep may be more appropriate.

      That’s the problem….they do it all the time AND NOT ONE PERSON HAS BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE…so why stop, they ARE above the law. Americans for Prosperity (of the 1%) have done false information mailers 7 times now…and still NOTHING. I think it may be time to take things into our own hands since our justice system gives them a free pass EVERY SINGLE TIME!

        The DOJ is on this like Wall Street fraud. Oh wait…never mind.

    Voting fraud in America today. Perpetrated by Republicans. Color me shocked.

    • Dwendt44 November 3rd, 2014 at 12:45 am

      technically it’s ‘election fraud’.

      • mea_mark November 3rd, 2014 at 10:46 am

        It is also mail fraud.

    She’s just following the example of a previous Milwaukee County Supervisor – Scott Walker.

    Reaching to the bottom of the sleeze barrel

    Haha. But Mary Burke doing the EXACT same thng is okay? Lefties are truly getting desperate with the hypocritical allegations and judgments.

    • ChaosRain November 3rd, 2014 at 9:05 am

      OK, Tim. Help me out here. First of all, when was Mary Burke a Milwaukee County Supervisor, and when did she send out false information at taxpayer expense regarding a citizen’s ability to exercise his/her constitutional right? How is “leftie” getting desperate? This ONE, SPECIFIC event is a single, observable, verifiable occurrence. How is this “hypocritical” or “desperate”? Seriously….I’m asking an honest question and I’m hoping that you can spell this out for me. Who knows….I MAY come to agree with you!

      • Tim blah November 3rd, 2014 at 12:10 pm

        Well, first of all Mary Burke was never a supervisor or anything else in government for that matter. She hasn’t held a single job for 7 years and now she decides she wants to come in and run the state, making her the most unqualified govenortorial candidate in history…but aside from that she is the democratic governortorial for the state so what she puts puts out has far more leverage and visibility than what Alexander does. And the fact that Mary Burke put out the exact same thing on a flyer and it gets totally ignored is astonishing. Read the bottom of the flyer…

        Burke also brought in Obama to try to get the black vote, which in this day in age i considered desperate due to the fact that almost all Democrats want absolutely nothing to do with Obama because
        they don’t want to be associated with all of his failed policies and outright lies

        • OldLefty November 3rd, 2014 at 12:24 pm

          In other words, you can’t answer the question.

          • Tim blah November 3rd, 2014 at 2:20 pm

            Well I guess not then…enjoy your shitseeking life where you make it your goal to make a fuss about a relevant or irrelevant topic. You scream about acceptance and openmindedness until you look in the mirror.

        • ChaosRain November 3rd, 2014 at 12:55 pm

          Sorry…but this doesn’t constitute an answer. This is a lot of false equivalencies. You initially said that “the left” was hypocritical for not calling Mary Burke out for doing the same thing as Alexander. But you didn’t address when Mary Burke abused public, political office to distribute false information at taxpayer expense. You told me your opinion of her qualifications, but there is no logical follow-through. She hasn’t held a job that YOU believe qualifies her, but that doesn’t speak to her overall qualifications—-a business degree from Georgetown, I believe and an MBA from Harvard vs. Walker’s dubious history at Marquette which ended in his exit with no degree.
          I’m going to need some clarification on your statement that “most democrats want absolutely nothing to do with Obama” as well. Looking at his campaign activities and those of his wife seem to prove otherwise—he’s been welcomed not just by Burke here in Wisconsin. Using a source other than a right-wing blog or Fox, can you please supply verification of “failed policies and outright lies”—again, something with verifiable, observable fact as opposed to your opinion?
          As a woman, I’m going to have to disagree with your “lesser of two evils” assessment of Walker, as well. He has made no secret of the fact that he opposes my right to earn equal pay for equal work. He has made it vastly more difficult for me to make my own choices regarding health care. He has dictated that MY tax dollars (yes, I am gainfully employed, full time, in a profession that requires a graduate degree) are funneled to his corporate funding sources who provide NO benefit for the citizens of Wisconsin, even though my CHOICE would be to fund health care and basic needs for Wisconsinites in need. Walker attacked the unions and rights of members that represent professions that are largely female dominated.
          I hope for you, the ability to see through the self-serving lies that you seem to surround yourself with and make decisions that will lead to more opportunity and fairness for you…..not continuing to be the echo-chamber of policies that are most probably keeping you from opportunities that should be the rights of all Wisconsinites.

      • Tim blah November 3rd, 2014 at 12:16 pm

        Most politicians running for any office our assholes regardless of party or affiliation. Scott Walker is just the lesser of 2 evils which , sadly, is normally the case.
