Kieler election official on voter ID laws

Saw this in the local paper today about one election official in Kieler (about seven miles northeast of the border with Iowa).

For 30-year local election chairman Gus Runde, a Wisconsin voter-ID law caused as much conversation as any candidate in last week’s elections.

“Some people got pretty angry,” he said of the law, which required voters to show photo ID as well as state their name and address. “They’d say, ‘What the hell is wrong with you? You’ve known me for 70 years.’”

Although the vast majority of voters knew about the law, fellow 30-year volunteer John Richard recalled a similar scenario.

“Somebody might come up to you who was your neighbor all your life, and they look at you and, ‘Geez, you know who I am,’” Richard said.


And I bet cash money some of these angry people were all about the voter ID laws when it kept "them" from voting and thought it was supposed to not apply to them. Some of these people are probably all about Scottie Wanker and the other Republicans up there in Wisconsin.

1. White privilege is all the rage with these people. Now, they get to face it.

Unfortunately, so do the rest of us and our election process is hacked.

2. OK, this polling place complied with the law - do we know they all did? Hate to think small rural

white communities would have an advantage over larger, more anonymous urban multicultural culture communities

"He likes to follow the law." Well geez - I should hope so!
