Wisconsin GOP plots vote suppression
by: JOHN BACHTELL
MILWAUKEE – A coordinated plot by the Republican Party, tea party and billionaire Koch brothers to suppress the vote in Wisconsin on Election Day has been exposed. One Wisconsin Now, a progressive voter advocacy group which exposed the plot, has sent a letter to the U.S. Justice Department requesting an investigation.

GROUPS TIED TO KOCH INDUSTRIES TRYING TO UNDERMINE DEMOCRACY IN WISCONSIN
Voters of Wisconsin be warned: organizations affiliated with a pair of out-of-state oil billionaires are attempting to undermine the functioning of your state’s democracy. Writing at Think Progress, Josh Dorner of Progressive Media exposes the network of organizations that helped kill a Wisconsin law intended to prevent voter suppression– a network which not coincidentally overlaps with the people and groups now alleged to have plotted to suppress the Wisconsin vote. And following the money trail points in the direction of the Koch brothers. The entire post is essential reading, but it all boils down to this:
“To recap, it appears that a network of Koch-backed groups killed a proposed Wisconsin law to protect voters, which then cleared the way for an overlapping set of Koch-backed groups to move with an alleged voter suppression plan. What’s more, Koch-funded AFP is currently attempting to further influence the outcome of the election by airing millions of dollars in attack ads targeting Democratic U.S. House and Senate members in Wisconsin and other states.”
