Arizona isn't the only state with GOP disenfranchisement; where are the bros on Wisconsin

When the Bernie Bros spout out there conspiracy theories about the states that have voter fraud or voter trouble they don't even mention Wisconsin, perhaps because it doesn't fit into their narrative, as Bernie won this state. But Wisconsin has one of the most brutal GOP disenfranchising laws that there is. But as of yesterday, we are very close to overturning those laws.

In a article in progressive magazine reveals that Judge Posner one of the judges in the case regrets his decision in 2007. Thanks to some dramatic testimony from Todd Allbaugh a former intern in Walkers office who said Walker and his repugs were "giddy" at disenfranchising voters. You might have seen this publicized on MSNBC on hardball and in The New York Times so kudos to those organizations for their reporting.

2. Many colleges were printing out new IDs for the kids before they voted....

disenfranchisement is only a problem when the privileged have to suffer like those who are not. They don't care about the hundreds of elderly individuals and African Americans that are actually disenfranchised.

3. I totally agree

When I hear the Bernie Bros using disenfranchisement to describe closed primaries it makes me a little sick at heart. That's not what that word is supposed to mean.
