Your morning funny

An anonymous advertiser has had billboards put up all over Milwaukee that proclaim "Voter Fraud is a Felony!".

According to community groups, this constitutes "another attempt at voter suppression".

You can't make this stuff up.

"Voter rights are under attack every which way possible," Wilder and others said, adding that a new state law requiring voters to show photo identification was halted in the courts.

Which right is that, the right to vote or the right to commit fraud?

I'm not sure I follow the logic of the groups that want the signs removed. Apparently, warning people that committing fraud is illegal somehow confuses them and discourages voting, rather than spurring them on to make sure they are legally registered.

The foundation that commissioned the signs is serious about it; they've purchased space on 85 billboards around town.

I fully expect this to get ugly, complete with calls to lynch the people who started this, if their identities are ever revealed. Hmm. Sounds like something right up our Community-Organizer-in-Chief's alley.
