Senator Concerned With Voter Intimidation

Wisconsin state Senator Jon Erpenbach has asked the state’s top election official what lawmakers can do to stop voter intimidation. Government Accountability Board director Kevin Kennedy

spoke to a newly-created Senate panel which is taking a look at voting in Wisconsin. Kennedy was asked about election observers who challenge what Democrats call “every single thing under the sun” at a polling place, including voters who are trying to register. Kennedy told the committee members there has to be a legitimate reason to challenge a registration. Otherwise, the challenger can be removed. All members of that panel are Democrats.
