Wisconsin voting day quoting of the day

Mordecai Lee, a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee political scientist, says "single-digit turnouts" are possible, which he thinks tend to skew more conservative than higher turnouts.
Normally Mordecai Lee's "skewing more conservative" wouldn't make much sense in a Democratic primary election, which is what are taking place today in six Senate districts, except Republican chicanery put six non-entities — fakes — on the ballots and they're urging the faithful to interfere with the process. It's not illegal, but it is sleazy and dishonest.

It's how they roll.

After David Cameron made some namby-pamby remark the other day about the Murdoch scandal, someone remarked that the Prime Minister did not seem to understand that things have changed in the last 48 hours. The same could be said about Mordecai Lee, except he's had five months.

The Republican party, so concerned with voter fraud, changed the laws to protect the integrity of the election process. Yet they put FAKE candidates on the ballot? How disingenuous and deceitful.

Ethics? Integrity? Honesty? Why not stand in the light of day, strong to their positions on issues and let that be their platform to victory? Have they so little confidence that they resort to devious scheming?

The Republican party's fake Democratic candidates are the greatest fraud of all.
They dishonor the election process and the people that they are supposed to serve.

If Mordecai Lee says something, believe the opposite.

What John said. Turnout was on the order of 20%.
