DMV – Voter ID Free? Keep it Secret
The Madison Capital Times reports that in the latest development in the controversy over the state’s new Voter-ID law, recently passed by state Republicans, a memo written by a state Department of Transportation official instructs employees at the Division of Motor Vehicles not to directly offer app...
EMAIL FROM MIKE TATE | Chair Democratic Party of Wisconsin
"A state Department of Transportation official has told employees not to alert people they can get identification cards for free under a new law requiring people to show photo IDs to vote.
"While you should certainly help customers who come in asking for a free ID to check the appropriate box (on a Division of Motor Vehicles form), you should refrain from offering the free version to customers who do not ask for it," says a memo from Steve Krieser, who at the time was the DMV's operations chief for field services."
Fellow Democrat, we need your help:
The new Republican voter suppression bill is off to a disturbing start, with news reports that Scott Walker's administration has instructed DMV employees to deliberately conceal the fact that IDs now necessary to vote should be free, lest they constitute a flatly unconstitutional "poll tax."
In full damage-control mode, his administration has since said that they've put up some signs to comply with the spirit of the law.
Do you take him at his word?
I didn't think so.
That's why we're asking you to go to your local DMV and take pictures or videos of the signs the Walker administration claims it has displayed.
Is it displayed? Where is it displayed? Is your DMV even open?
We're collecting evidence that we assure you will be used down the road to return Wisconsin to a place where the franchise is valued-not suppressed.
Send your pictures, videos and accounts to our research director, Melissa Baldauff, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your help on such short notice.

Yeah, that's it! We'll call it "personalized" and they'll never know the difference! (so I'll explain it to them)

In Scott Walker's Wisconsin: the governor uses the people's house to take a phone call from who he thought was an out-of-state oil tycoon billionaire and discusses his plans to incite violence at a peaceful protest and jokes about dropping "the bomb" on Wisconsin's working families = OK.
A state employee spreads awareness about the constitutional right to vote = fireable offense.

Paul Ryan NEEDS to be held accountable for his actions against the people!! Please keep sharing this, the world needs to know how our representative treats the people who dare to disagree with him.
"As Congressman Paul Ryan cracked a joke about him, Tom Nielsen found himself face down on the floor being handcuffed by police. The 71-year-old retired plumber from Kenosha was thrown to the ground, placed in handcuffs, and arrested for trespassing and resisting arrest after objecting to Ryan's plans to gut Social Security and Medicare during his congressman's only public appearance scheduled during the August recess -- a $15 Rotary Club luncheon in West Allis on Tuesday.
