Surprise: DOJ to Monitor WI Recall Election

2012 June 5

I’m sure Eric Holder & Company is looking for fraudulant voters. lol. 

The Justice Department will be monitoring polling activities in Milwaukee during the recall election of Republican Governor Scott Walker on Tuesday. According to a DOJ press release

WASHINGTON – The Justice Department announced today that it will monitor elections on June 5, 2012, in the following jurisdictions to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and other federal voting rights statutes: Alameda, Fresno and Riverside Counties, Calif.; Cibola and Sandoval Counties, N.M.; Shannon County, S.D.; and the city of Milwaukee.

The Voting Rights Act prohibits discrimination in the election process on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group.  In addition, the act requires certain covered jurisdictions to provide language assistance during the election process.  Fresno County, Riverside County and the city of Milwaukee are required to provide assistance in Spanish.  Cibola, Sandoval and Shannon Counties are required to provide language assistance to Native American voters.  Alameda County is required to provide language assistance to Hispanic, Chinese, Vietnamese and Filipino voters.


As reported in a previous Water Cooler post Obama Campaign strategist David Axelrod told reporters on Sunday that an “army of lawyers” will be in the Badger state “to protect” the vote during the recall election.

Hat tip: Washington Times

Scott Walker isn’t the only one facing recall today. So is Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. And, Rebecca is no Debbie Wasserman Schultz or Debbie Stabenow.

    hmmm…”and the city of Milwaukee” Interesting that the one part of Wisconsin that is called out is the home of the guy running against Walker??

    Nothing to see here, folks…move along.

    btw…and still on Wisconsin

    yesterday even MORE history got re-written…though you may have missed it

    the A/P in talking about the race declared that Barrett “easily united the Wisconsin Democrats since the Primary had not been very contentious”. WTF??? It was VERY “contentious”…and Barrett was NOT the choice of the Unions! But the A/P finds that history “uncomfortable”.

    JR –

    If you want to replace this with a directive from the Ministry of Truth, please do so.

    bc3b, the Ministry of Truth will, no doubt, weigh in tomorrow 🙂

    I expect that it Walker wins the Ministry of Truth will proclaim this to be just a local dustup…and nothing to see (with instructions to “Move along”)

    but if Barrett wins, I expect the Ministry of Truth will no doubt proclaim this to be a HUGE WIN FOR PROGRESSIVES AND OBAMA!!!

    of course, I’m merely a humble cubicle dweller in the Ministry 🙂

    #6 I would think it would have originated with “Fish”.

    The ONLY reason the DOJ is monitoring this, is so they can challenge a loss.

    They also need to know how many ballots to “find”.

    I fully expect Milwaukee to report late if not LAST…so they know exactly how to cook the books!

    Walker HAS to win big everywhere else.

    speaking of Milwaukee…there is a report of entire bus convoys headed there from Illinois and Michigan. Holder’s DOJ will ensure they all vote.

    There is a BIG REASON why a “Judge” forced the new Wisconsin voting laws to NOT be in force until November…and THIS is that reason!

    In the past the DOJ has worked to minimize voter fraud. Under Eric Holder, it is working to maximize voter fraud.

    Janet Reno was simply incompetent. Eric Holder is completely corrupt.

    #28—omg. Only the people who thought Obama had a stash of cash for them so he could pay their mortgages and other bills would believe you didn’t have to vote if you signed a petition.

    If, in fact, you are so stupid as to believe either that you didn’t need to vote if you signed a petition, OR that election day was on WED, when there has been nothing but recall election news 24/7 for months, well, you are too stupid to be a credible human and therefore should not be allowed to vote. In fact, you are too stupid to use up other people’s oxygen.

    sheesh. stupid people slay me.

    I want today to be over and the election called. I can’t stand the suspense. It’s obviously making me cranky.

    I was just sitting on my ass on my screened porch/sunroom and, not having anything better to do, checked in on MSNBC at EST. What a hoot. If it were not so serious, I would have ROFL’d through the whole thing. They started the show with Mr Ed (the horse who speaks from the wrong end of the horse) and others who joined Martin RashisMeare. They talked for 20 minutes about how awful the Republicans are using out of state millions to buy the Recall Farce today in Wisconsin, without one (That is zero,zilch,nada) mention of all the Union Money being spent in Wisconsin on behalf of the dim party. I could only stand it for a little while.

    Tip: If you want to see grown people cry, watch the Recall election tonight on MSNBC. I gaurentee you will get a kick out of it if you can stomach it.

    Not much trustworthy info out there so far on Wi….

    Walker is holding at 92% on Intrade, but was up around 94 earlier. They are probably still counting the union guys being bussed in, might take a lot of busses.

  39. 2012 June 5 2:20 pm

    Unions bussing in out of state voters:

    I would imagine a lot more will be coming from Illinois. Detroit is about 5.5 hours to Milwaukee. Chicago is less than two hours away.

    b3, not to worry, Holder will never see them.

    Yeah, KH, that’s on Drudge….

    Walker has slipped on Intrade, tho, was down to 87, back up to 88.8. Not quite popping the champagne cork yet. 🙂

    I predict Walker 54, Barrett 46.

    Book it
