Surprise: DOJ to Monitor WI Recall Election
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.
