Green's Shameless Voter Supression Tactics

Mark Green doesn't want you to vote and the US DOJ is going to let him get away with sending you home from the polls. The Help America Vote Act allows you to give a social security number to vote if you don't have a driver's license.

The Wisconsin Elections Board made a ruling that if you left your driver's license at home, you could give your social security number and still vote.

Mark Green, candidate for governor, APPEALED that decision to the US Department of Justice.

He argued (and WON) that if you HAVE a driver's license, and you leave it at home or can't remember the number, YOU CANNOT REGISTER TO VOTE with a social security number. So, if your purse or wallet is stolen or misplaced on your way to the polls, and you don't have your driver's license number memorized (who does), YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO VOTE ON ELECTION DAY WITHOUT FIRST GOING TO THE DMV AND GETTING A NEW LICENSE!!!!

Why is this important? Green does NOT have the vote of most young people, economically disadvanged, or minorities.

So who moves most frequently? Young people, economically disadvantaged and minorities.

Because they move frequently, they often have to register every time they vote and usually do it ON ELECTION DAY.

The more reasons he can find to turn these LAW ABIDING CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE STATE OF WISCONSIN away from the polls on Election Day, the easier it will be to selectively suppress the vote in certain communities around the state.

I'd like to see after the November election where the Green Machine (GOP) stations it's poll watchers to make sure THIS new rule is being enforced...

How much do you want to bet that they won't be in Ozaukee County???

Shameless. If you are a citizen of the United States, every effort to prove that should be given to you to ensure that your right to vote is protected.

If NOT, we no longer live in a Democracy... Of the People, By the People and For the People.
Apparently those words mean nothing to the disgraceful Green.

And this guy who wants to stop rightful citizens from voting by making up ridiculous technicalities wants to be our GOVERNOR???

If you can't win the vote with an honest majority, you have to find ways to suppress your opposition. Classic tactics used in a totalitarian state...

and not the first time the GOP has used tactics like this to steal an election...
