By now many of you have read noise of rain’s diary Recall Kicks Off At Walker's House, But Watch Your Back: Teabaggers Already Talking Trash, about Teabaggers that will go to any length to disrupt the recall process. Well, on Monday, November 14, 2011, the Republican Party of Wisconsin has announced the opening of the “Recall Integrity Center.”
It is a website designed to protect the integrity of the signature gathering process and be a valuable resource for Wisconsin voters who have witnessed any wrong-doing or suspect foul play by Wisconsin Democrats or big government union bosses. Voters can submit videos, recordings, photos and incident reports, which will be investigated by RPW staff and retired law enforcement and FBI agents, to ensure that any Democrats who attempt to use any type of fraud in order to meet the required number of signatures by law will be held accountable for their actions.
Nice to see the Republicans are so concerned with election integrity—I mean, someone could hire someone from out of state to collect signatures, a convicted felon, perhaps, or maybe the signature collector could trade alcoholic drinks for signatures. The Republican Party did all of these things in that last round of recall elections. Pot meet kettle.
The hypocrisy of the Republican Party and its followers in Wisconsin continues to astound me. Their Voter ID law was allegedly to restore integrity at the ballot box—yet these yahoos will do anything and everything they can to disenfranchise voters and will do anything and everything they can do to intimidate signature collectors in a legitimate recall election. If they want to restore integrity to the election process then they need to clean up their own house first!
