Elections Matter, But Not To The D's

About that voter reform in my Neighbor to the North, Wisconsin, From DANE and Redstate:

Wisconsin rivaled WA in fraud-u-votes, upon which the (D)'s rely... so this is no surprise:
Gov. Jim Doyle(D) Friday vetoed the voter photo ID. Today, the State Assembly failed to override his veto.
Although the photo ID bill was one of the most hotly debated issues during Tuesday's session, the outcome wasn't a surprise. Republicans had expected to fall short of having a two-thirds majority - 66 votes - to override Doyle's veto of the bill.

The final vote was 61 to 34. Four Assembly Democrats - Reps. Peggy Krusick of Milwaukee, Tom Nelson of Kaukauna, Tony Staskunas of West Allis and Bob Ziegelbauer of Manitowoc - joined Republicans in supporting it. Two Republicans - Reps. Terri McCormick of Appleton and Suzanne Jeskewitz of Menomonee Falls - weren't present for the vote.
While Doyle gets to maintain an election status quo Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker and Rep. Mark Green both get a popular issue to hammer the incumbant with. 80+% of likely voters back a photo ID requirement before voting. 70% of municiple clerks, the people who run local polls, also back the measure. Yet Doyle is too politically tone deaf or too beholden to Democrats who don't mind shenanigans at the polls.
You have to show ID to vote in Mexico... you have to be registered with a work permit to have a job in Mexico...

Oh... and Wisconsin went for Kerry(D) by 11,384 votes out of almost 3 million cast. Funny all we heard about was Ohio where the gap was over 118,599...

Amazing how the will of the people doesn't matter to the Dem's at the state level or in the Senate isn't it! Elections matter and as long as they fail to realize that they will continue to be a minority party!
