Ernest A. Canning on the War on Wisconsin

Ernest A. Canning is a Vietnam veteran and
critic of Scott Walker and the GOP's war on voting

Update: Wisconsin Supreme Court refuses to take up voter ID cases (April 16, 2012)

If-ya-can't beat 'em, disenfranchise 'em. The purpose of photo ID can be seen in the adverse impact on the poor, the elderly, minorities and students, none of whom tend to vote for GOP candidates

Ernest A. Canning is a Vietnam vet (4th Infantry, Central Highlands 1968), and arguably the most incisive analyst on Scott Walker and the Republicans' attempt to keep registered voters from voting in Wisconsin. The war against voting is fought in a nationwide theater, but the Recall against Scott Walker has given Wisconsin voter obstruction national prominence as the most restrictive Voter ID in the nation, and for the moment the most important.

Check out his interview with Joan Brunwasser at OpEd News.

Two cases remain in federal court, and two in Wisconsin state court.
