Wisconsin Republicans go to U.S. Supreme Court to block extended absentee voting.

Wisconsin’s Republican-led legislature refused to delay Tuesday's primary election, formally rejecting on Saturday a call from the state's Democratic governor, Tony Evers, to halt in-person voting amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The move comes as Republicans on Saturday also asked the U.S. Supreme Court to block a lower court ruling that expanded absentee balloting in the state.

State Republicans on Saturday gaveled into a special session called by Evers then immediately closed the session without taking action. Republicans indicated they had adjourned until Monday.

It is now up to the governor to try to find other emergency measures to delay the election. Evers suggested on Friday that he would attempt to do so.

“If they take no action, we’ll be looking at whatever action we can take," Evers said. “We will continue to find ways to make sure Wisconsinites are safe, and that’s the bottom line.”

1. They are a freaking death cult

 

Seriously they are forcing Bernie's hand if he has any common sense. I would think this could be used in the general election. You risk your life to exercise your franchise. It doesn't effect the Republicans because their primary is not competitive, but what about the down ticket races? Are they voting now as well?

be a sure ticket to victory since they and their base are the only ones stupid enough to ignore good “social-distancing” sense to stand in line to vote.

9. They'd have to sit on that one for a while before it would even come up onthe docket

 

to be considered for cert. at that point and it probably would be rejected.

8. Gov. Evers Could Perhaps Follow DeWine's Example

 

And shut it down as a public health measure....

Failing that, make damned sure the people know who killed them, when they take a front line role in defense of Democracy....





"When things are not called by their right names, what is said cannot make sense. When what is said does not make sense, what is planned cannot succeed. When plans do not succeed, people become uneasy. When people are uneasy, punishments do not fit crimes. When punishments do not fit crimes, people cannot know where to put hand or foot."

10. They know that people in the larger cities like Milwaukee and Madison

 

will be more likely to stay home because of the virus and that the rural population will vote and they will have a lock on the Supreme Court vote.

13. Can't say what I want to

 

So, the republicans are saying that you can vote, and also run a one in fifty chance of dying, or caring Corona home with you. Of course they won't let the people have mail in voting--that's safe. And they know exactly what they are doing. The Republicans message to democratic voters; die!
I hope that when their election time comes around that people will remember that they addressed the public trust given them by their position as state senators with the morality of death camp guards.

vote. We didn't cancel elections for the Civil War. I don't like seeing elections postponed or cancelled. It's a very bad precedent.

18. Wisconsin COVID curve is not as exponential

 

The daily number of new cases is approximately stable.

If Wisconsin was not practicing the current social distancing, the number of daily cases would be increasing.

Wisconsin needs to increase social distancing, as well as every place in the world.
