Massive voter purge being attempted in Wisconsin right now.

A conservative group is helping a trio of "concerned citizens" purge hundreds of thousands of voters from the rolls. These are people who have already registered to vote but may have moved. Guess who moves a lot? People of lower economic means who tend to vote for Democrats. Now, unless the current decision is reversed by a higher court, all of these people will have to go back to the DMV, update their information, and get a new voter ID...EVEN IF THEY HAVEN'T MOVED!

PORT WASHINGTON - An Ozaukee County judge on Friday ordered the state to remove hundreds of thousands of people from Wisconsin's voter rolls because they may have moved.

The case is being closely watched because of the state's critical role in next year's presidential race. Circuit Judge Paul Malloy also denied the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin's petition to intervene.

Lawyers for the League and for the Wisconsin Elections Commission indicated they will appeal and asked Malloy to stay his ruling pending those appeals, but he declined.
