But it’s only Democrats who rig elections, we are told.

Kris Teske, the city clerk in Green Bay, argued that her office lacks the resources to set up an additional polling location near the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay — but an email released as part of an open-records request found her cooking up a convoluted legal claim to prevent students from voting, reported The Nation

Teske — who was appointed by Republican Mayor Jim Schmitt, a close ally of Gov. Scott Walker — bristled at requests from a “very persistent” Democratic state lawmaker, Eric Genrich, to open an additional polling location near the campus…

“I have heard it said that students lean more toward the democrats and he is a democrat,” she wrote. “I have spoken with our Chief of Staff and others at City Hall and they agree that budget wise this isn’t going to happen.”

Teske explicitly asked the attorney from the bipartisan state commission whether she could deny students additional hours to vote because they were more likely to cast ballots for Democratic candidates.

“I would like to know your thoughts on this,” Teske wrote. “Do I have an argument about it being more of a benefit to the democrats.”

    Throw the b*tch in jail!…..This is a paid political announcement from people who give a sh*t about Democracy!!

  • Larry Schmitt

    They don’t even try anymore to hide their scorn for the Constitution.

  • Snick1946

    She is in a decision capacity for elections and she is this Goddamn stupid? Felling like this is one thing, being so dense you put it in writing on the net is colossal. Fire her ass. I assume the WI Dems are filing legal suit to remove her from anything electoral.

    God what is it with WI? For years it had a reputation as a Progressive state. Now it is starting to look like Appalachia at least around the edges.

    • Mike

      Something got into the water when Walker was elected…

    • Dwendt44

      Not only progressive but also a reputation for honest, fair and open elections.
      BUT Republicans can’t win that way.

    • Bunya

      We had the same problem in Illinois when the ill-informed voted for Bruce Rauner. He won’t win re-election, but he caused quite a bit of damage while serving.

  • amersham1046

    Well Mr Trump, here is somebody trying to rig the election

  • Mike

    Not so sure students favor the dems…they are certainly more liberal than the general population when it comes to social issues like gender equality and same sex marriage but I’m with em all day and they can be a mixed-up can of nuts … they go through pains to think outside the box and challenge logical assumptions.

    • whatthe46

      ann coltergiest once said that women shouldn’t be allowed to go to university or vote because of education and they tend to vote dems. well, i wonder the hell why?

  • Warman1138

    Why be concerned about voter fraud when all the frauds have been elected and appointed already……….as republicans.

    • Dwendt44

      They rant and rave about voter fraud. A large part of the reason is that it distracts the public’s attention away from the ‘election fraud’ they love to practice.

  • Foundryman

    It’s no secret that Wisconsin has the most corrupt republican party in the country. Stealing elections is a way of life for them.

    • granpa.usthai

      2nd most corrupt. NC leads the way for ‘christian’ religious based corruption!

      BAR NONE!

  • William

    She’s just trying to level the playing field. Hillary has already bought the election as proven by this recently released Russian…er I mean WikiLeaks document.

    • Larry Schmitt

      What, no tip?

      • StoneyCurtisll

        The tip is….(dont vote republican)

    • Mensa Member

      Did the conservative media work for free? Or is it hidden in Trump’s tax returns?

    • Scott S

      Oh you mean the Russians who are doing everything they can to elect the orange cheetoh? Nobody in the history of this country has been as inexperienced and dangerous as Donald Trump and yet normalized by the media.. the Republicans are getting exactly what they deserve for nominating the idiot .. your stupid, childish remarks and images won’t change that.

  • Budda

    This is great example of voter fraud/suppression

  • robert

    GB is another world

  • jybarz

    The BITCH should be charged for voter suppression.

  • StoneyCurtisll

    And it’s Trump and the right that are crying, “it’s rigged”…

    • granpa.usthai

      this is probably one of the reasons?

      {if one side is doing it, the other probably is too}

    • The Original Just Me

      If you want to know what the Republicans are up to, just look at what they are accusing the Democrats of doing.

      • StoneyCurtisll


  • Mensa Member

    Is it asking to much for conservatives to accept the basic American principles of democracy?

    Their efforts at voter suppression are a clear rejection of core American values.

    • Bunya

      When have republicans ever given a damn about American values? For them, winning must be accomplished, no matter how much they have to lie, steal and cheat. It’s been that way since the Nixon era.

  • fahvel

    the bitch should be tossed in a dumpster and sent off to some mini dictatorship where her dreams will all come true. It’s another sad commentary about the usa.

  • Stan Ubeki

    What amazes me is that this abomination of a public servant is stupid enough to say this out loud. We have normalized ignorance.
