    It took Career Politician Scott Walker 4 extra months of obfuscating and obstructing and 3 court orders to finally follow the law! What a corrupt charlatan! Walker and republicans are scheming frauds that hate democracy, hate freedom and loathe the good people of Wisconsin’s fundamental right to vote. You LOSE republicans.
    Now hold the damn elections Walker!

    Freedom and Democracy-1
    Career Politician Walker-0

    Thank you Eric Holder and the good Wisconsin judges for spanking these corrupt clown’s butts for the whole world to see.

    ALL WISCONSINITES DESERVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE!

    Dump Walker 2018!

    I guess Democrats will NEVER EVER AGAIN have any credibility when it comes to complaining about “out-of-state-influence,’ then, huh?

    I’ll have to remember that!

  3. Terry says:

    @WashCoRepug, WRONG!! You mean the Wisconsin judges (some of whom Walker himself appointed) that ruled against republicans 3 times are now “out if state” influence? WRONG AGAIN!

    Newsflash republicans!

    There is a very BIG difference between Career Politician Scott Walker and Wisconsin republicans selling out the state to out of state billionaires, corporate interests and lobbyists for Washington DC special interest groups in return for millions in campaign donations and a group that was forced to sue Walker in defense of democracy, freedom, and Wisconsinite’s constitutionally protected voting rights simply because republicans and Walker wouldn’t follow the LAW and hold the damn elections. Put your partisan crap to bed. The law is the law. You, nor Walker nor anyone else is above it.

    Thank you Eric Holder and thank you Wisconsin judges for seeing to it that the law is upheld and that EVERYONE, republican, democrat or any other person is entitled the the right to vote.

    Dump Walker 2018
