Annals of Republican vote suppression

Posted By on Thu, Sep 8, 2011 at 2:55 PM

They just keep showing their (dirty) hands.

Told you yesterday about a story in which Wisconsin officials are trying to keep secret as much as possible the availability of free voter ID cards for people trying to jump through hoops Wisconsin Republicans have thrown up to suppress vote by older and minority voters.

Today we learn they fired an employee who tried to get out the word about free IDs. Is there really any doubt that Republicans want to make it harder to vote? And that they hope lack of knowledge about the Free ID will discourage people into thinking they have to pay $28 for the privilege? It's a de facto poll tax.
