Wisconsin Democrats held in contempt for refusing to purge voter rolls

Across America, there is a constant war being waged over voter rolls.  Democrats resist any effort to purge the rolls, contending that any diminution of names on the rolls constitutes voter suppression and is manifestly intended to keep minorities from voting.  Conservatives strongly support existing laws to purge from voter rolls names associated with people who have passed away or moved on.  They argue that doing so preserves voting integrity by making it more difficult for the cemetery vote to affect election outcomes.

In Wisconsin, a battle is being waged before an Ozaukee County judge who has reached the end of his patience with the Elections Commission and three of its members because they refuse to abide by his December order that they remove thousands of non-viable names from the state’s voting records:

“I can’t be any clearer than this,” Judge Paul Malloy said. “They need to follow my order.”

He said the commission must pay $50 a day until it starts taking people off the rolls. In addition, he’s charging the three Democrats on the commission who have fought taking people off the rolls — Ann Jacobs, Julie Glancey and Mark Thomsen — $250 a day each.
