Rest assured today, Eric Holder and his sterling team is on the ground in Wisconsin to “monitor” the recall election. In addition, Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod said “an army of lawyers” will be on hand “to protect” the vote.
For some reason, the Obama campaign thought it would be great to stick its nose in the Wisconsin race and, thereby, turn it into a referendum on the president himself. Now, the latest polls show that Republican governor Walker is likely to hold onto his job. And one gets the sense that the White House is starting to panic, sending its lawyers and poll station monitors out and pretending voter’s rights are threatened as if this vote were taking place in the Jim Crow south of fifty years ago.
This is from the same justice department that has suggested that asking someone to show their driver’s license as proof of identity amounts to a civil rights violation.
