Eric Holder’s Demonization Of Honest Elections

Attorney General Eric Holder, who announced his resignation (on 9/25), leaves a dismal legacy at the Justice Department. Of all his legal innovations, one was especially pernicious: the demonizing of state attempts to ensure honest elections.

As a former U.S. attorney general under President Reagan, and a former Ohio secretary of state, we would like to say something that might strike some as obvious:

Those who oppose photo voter-ID laws and other election-integrity reforms are intent on making it easier to commit vote fraud.

Ensure Election Integrity

In-person absentee voting for the General Election begins in only 20 days, which means that poll observers are needed! These individuals will play a crucial role in preventing voter fraud in Milwaukee County. We want to ensure that the new voter ID rules are being enforced. Governor Walker is counting on us to preserve the integrity of the election and he needs your help now.

Election observers will be stationed at the Milwaukee City Hall which is located at 200 East Wells Street. Shift times are: 7-10am, 12-2pm, and 4-8pm. The dates are: Monday, October 20-Friday, October 24 and Monday, October 27-Friday, October 31.

There will be an online webinar on Thursday, October 16th at 12pm that will serve as a training session.

If interested, please let me know which shift and date you would like to observe. Contact me with any questions. This election is too close to leave to chance!

How Carter Beat Reagan in 1980

Washington Post admits polling was “in-kind contribution”; New York Times agenda polling.

–SNIP– That’s right. Jimmy Carter beat Ronald Reagan in 1980.

In a series of nine stories in 1980 on “Crucial States” — battleground states as they are known today — the New York Times repeatedly told readers then-President Carter was in a close and decidedly winnable race with the former California governor. And used polling data from the New York Times/CBS polls to back up its stories.

Four years later, it was the Washington Post that played the polling game — and when called out by Reagan campaign manager Ed Rollins a famous Post executive called his paper’s polling an “in-kind contribution to the Mondale campaign.” Mondale, of course, being then-President Reagan’s 1984 opponent and Carter’s vice president.

Scott Walker Campaign Readies for Final Stretch

As of now, he’s in a statistical dead heat.

At the end of August, the Marquette University Law School poll — which has developed an enviable reputation for predicting the behavior of voters in the Badger State — released results which again show the gubernatorial race in Wisconsin in an absolute statistical dead heat. Democrat candidate Mary Burke is about a percentage point ahead with “likely” voters, and Scott Walker is slightly ahead (by about the same margin) with “registered” voters. Dr. Charles Franklin, director of the poll, points out the remarkable lack of movement: upwards of 45% support Burke, and upwards of 45% support Walker, and it has been so for months.

America’s half-century of polarization, in one GIF

Alabama’s electoral votes will go to the Republican presidential candidate in 2016. We can say this with certainty, because we know that the state votes Republican almost without fail. But the extent to which it votes Republican does change. And in recent presidential elections, for example, it’s been more Republican than in the past, when you compare its vote to the national popular vote margin.

Beware Old Voter Registration Forms

Date: July 2, 2014

MADISON, WI – The Government Accountability Board cautions everyone registering voters for upcoming elections to make sure they’re using the new forms.

Many Wisconsin municipal clerks report receiving voter registrations on old forms that do not have space for newly required information about the voter’s proof of residence, said Kevin Kennedy, director and general counsel of the G.A.B.

For a Smaller, More Efficient Government

Dear Milwaukee County Voter,

You have a unique opportunity next Tuesday to affect the future direction of county government.

In a rare binding referendum on the Tuesday, April 1 ballot, your vote will set the level of pay Milwaukee County Supervisors will earn for the part-time job they occupy.

Over the past several weeks, a healthy conversation has taken place about the right-sizing of county board pay and the benefits of instituting a part-time county board just like every other county in the state.

This week the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial board joined the chorus of others endorsing a YES vote on the April 1 referendum. Read the entire editorial here: Our View | County Board Referendum: Voters can send board strong message Tuesday

Out of the community discussion on this issue has emerged a consensus view that our county works best when Supervisors are reasonably paid for the core part-time responsibilities they carry out.

Please join your neighbors and colleagues in voting YES on the referendum on Tuesday.

Thanks,
Forward Milwaukee County
