gearing up for 2014 and 16 voter suppression, wonder how he feels knowing he was standing there lying to the people and then getting slapped down by those he pretends to look out for, i'm luvin' it.
WASHINGTON -- Wisconsin poll workers are speaking out against Gov. Scott Walker's (R) proposal to eliminate same-day votingregistration in the state, despite his argument that it would lighten the burden on these overworked officials on Election Day.In a speech on Nov. 16, in the wake of President Barack Obama's win in Wisconsin, Walker called for the repeal of Wisconsin's same-day registration law."States across the country that have same-day registration have real problems because the vast majority of their states have poll workers who are wonderful volunteers, who work 13-hour days and who in most cases are retirees," he said. "It's difficult for them to handle the volume of people who come at the last minute. It'd be much better if registration was done in advance of election day. It'd be easier for our clerks to handle that. All that needs to be done."
he's gone from lying about his own state to making up problems for other states, audacity of arrogance?
But nearly a dozen poll workers who spoke with The Huffington Post all had the same message: Same-day registration is not a problem, and Walker should not eliminate it.
"This whole idea that this is somehow a burden on poll workers is just not true, and I can guarantee you it's not the perception of the vast majority of the people who work at the polls," said Ruth Irvings, 61, who served as a poll worker in Milwaukee this year with her 24-year-old son.
"I've been a poll worker, and I've worked the registration table [in the last three elections]," added Lanore Rusch, 75, a Wausau resident. "We have no problem whatsoever. We aren't overworked. ... For Walker to say that the people who are doing the registration can't keep up is just foolish. He should come down and watch once in awhile."
will the Kochs ask for a refund on that one?
