Scott Walker Is in Kentucky

For anyone wondering where Scott Walker is as Wisconsin Republican legislators launch another war on voting, Scott Wartman reports, "Northern Kentucky Republicans brought in Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to help raise funds for state House and Senate races in 2014."

"Gov. Walker is very tuned in to what’s happening to Kentucky," Sen. Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown said. "He has a Republican House and Senate in Wisconsin. He knows the importance of that."

No idea where Walker is now.

MLK Fought for Voting Rights

"So long as I do not firmly and irrevocably possess the right to vote I do not possess myself."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Republican and Tea Party agree.

And they wish to obstruct, suppress and prevent the right to vote of those who would dare vote non-Republican.

This is an attack on democracy itself: Such is the Republican Party. Cantor, Walker, Ryan—sick and cowardly as those in the Party who go along with the attack on civil rights for the sake of political convenience.

The anti-equality party lost the war on civil rights, on liberty.

But the civil rights of America remain under attack.

King would suggest we defend these rights and that decent people in the Republican Party join, rise up and condemn the attacks.

As any sentient American can see, the civil rights movement today will find very few allies—can we name one—in the Republican Party.
