The Wisconsin State Journal (AP) and Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (Jason Stein) ran dumbed-down pieces on the Republican and Tea Party's vacuous claims of massive voter fraud in the last 24 hours.
Both pieces lack the rigor, facts and scope of the Brennan Center for Justice's routine work on the GOP's effort to steal elections by obstructing voters by demanding unconstitutional remedies for a problem invented in the minds of GOP strategists.
And these pieces represent a vast improvement in coverage of the GOP's effort to steal elections by stopping voters—especially the black, brown and homeless-veterans' types of voters.
Self-deport yourselves from the political process, is the GOP-Tea Party project.
Packer fans are rightly outraged by the scab officials' absurd calls on the field that take the integrity out of football and cost us a game last night.
We ought to be similarly outraged by the GOP and Tea Party's efforts to take the integrity out of our democratic system, and obstruct the rights of millions of Americans in virtually every state controlled by the GOP-Tea Party axis.
