This just in from Votelaw.
The wisconsin voter ID law veto stood, when an override vote only got 61-34, needing 2/3. Now WI, unlike Indiana, actually does have a vote fraud problem. In Milwaukee
(where I plan to move by this time next year) there is a culture of dead people voting reflecting Cook County practices. But that doesn't mean that voter ID is the right solution. Some narrowly tailored approach, based on something like reasonable suspicion or probably cause, could be found to deal with the actual problem. Anyone have a workable proposal?
The Assembly's 61-34 vote fell short of the two-thirds required to override Doyle, a Democrat who said in his veto message Friday the bill would disenfranchise 100,000 senior citizens who do not have the type of photo ID required in the legislation.
