Federal Judge Puts the Wood to Voter Suppression in Wisconsin

U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman absolutely shreds Wisconsin Republicans’ effort to suppress voting in their state (part of the national electoral strategy on the Right for several years now). In particular part, Judge Adelman points out the state presented zero evidence that the supposed voter fraud, which they claimed was rampant, existed.

As legal analyst Andrew Cohen discusses in this Atlantic piece, the decision will certainly be appealed and could likely be overturned at the appellate level, if not the U.S. Supreme Court, which has already blessed voter suppression via ID laws.

Cohen also links to some very good work done by journalist Jane Mayer on the subject, and the Brennan Center has extensive research into the pile of lies that are the foundation for voter suppression laws.
