Wisconsin GOP looks for cops, vets to monitor polls
October 16, 2008
As Wisconsin is more high risk than ever for the potential of voting fraud, the Wisconsin GOP is vowing to beef up its volunteer corps to monitor the polls in Milwaukee, but the Democrats are still not convinced and accusing the GOP of possible voter intimidation.
Andrea Kaminski, executive director of the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, a nonpartisan group that advocates for fair elections, said the GOP’s recruitment strategy sounded “heavy-handed and inappropriate.”
“It certainly sounds like an attempt to intimidate voters. It does,” she said.
