I guess what with the tea they've been snorting, there's nothing a Wisconsin Republican won't threaten these days... like getting outside help from the MacIver Institute... soon to be an officially branch of the Wisconsin Security Police?

CONTACT: SENATOR GROTHMAN
[West Bend, WI]- Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) released the following statement today on the subject of legal voting requirements in the upcoming Recall elections:
“It has come to my attention that absentee ballot applications have been filed on college campuses, last May, by students in dormitories and other areas on the La Crosse, Oshkosh River Falls and Stout campuses.
“Young people who move frequently, and college students in particular, should remember that when they vote on Aug 9th, they are legally required to have a residence in their ward on Aug 9th. A dorm contract that expired in the spring or a lease that begins in September is not enough.”
“I strongly encourage Clerks and law enforcement to crack down on any voters who may try to influence elections in wards in which they don’t even live.
“I am also reminding all clerks that if applications were made for all elections for the rest of the calendar year, that if a voter did not vote in the July election, they should not be receiving an absentee ballot in the August election unless they notified the clerk that they wanted a ballot in August.
“I would also point out that independent organizations such as the MacIver Institute may also be on the lookout for election scofflaws.”
