Democrats Take a Hit in the Badger State

Purging of out of date voter registrations in Wisconsin is a win for fairness and for the president.

It is a truism in American politics that Democrats cheat.

Dead voters, repeating voters, voters with false IDs, and the new angle of “ballot harvesting” are just some of the ways that the leftist party has devised to subvert the will of the American people.

Historians, even liberal ones, now mostly agree that Democrat John F. Kennedy stole the 1960 presidential election from then-Vice President and Republican standard-bearer Richard Nixon in Texas and Illinois by using the political machines of Kennedy’s own running-mate, Lyndon Johnson, and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley to add voters to the Democrats’ count and suppress the GOP vote.

To be fair, some say the Nixon campaign stole Ohio in 1960. Even if true, it was petty larceny compared to Kennedy’s bigger heist of Texas and Illinois.

We won’t even mention (does this count as a mention?) how old Joe Kennedy, the nominee’s dad, made deals with unions and the mob to give his son primary victories that otherwise were out of his political reach. It is reminiscent of the brilliant Vaughn Meader comedy album “The First Family.” The record parodied the Kennedy Administration’s political tactics by intoning, in a fake public service announcement, “Election Day is near. Go to the polls and vote. Vote for the Kennedy of your choice, but vote!”

As a former political consultant and veteran of Pennsylvania political wars, I can tell you that the Democrats’ voting corruption in Philadelphia is so rampant they might as well do away with municipal elections and instead stage coronations. At least that way, it would be less hypocritical.

Other counties in Pennsylvania, where there are more deer than people, have similar voting patterns. It’s a game Democrats play all over the state, especially if they are the majority party in a county and they are fairly confident of getting away with it.

In Wisconsin, however, Judge Paul Malloy is having none of these hijinks. Milloy on January 13 ordered the Wisconsin state election commission to purge 209,000 non-residents from its voter rolls. For good measure, he held three Democratic election commissioners in contempt of court.

As fair voting always helps the GOP and President Trump won the 2020 battleground state by less than 23,000 votes in the 2016 general election, this is a major win for his reelection effort. Imagine how much he could have won by in Wisconsin if the voter rolls had been purged before November 2016?

To add pleasure to the decision, most of the out-of-date voter registrations come from heavily Democrat cities and areas with college campuses. What a surprise.

This will not be the last shot fired in this fight, as other courts will have their say. But it’s a victory for the president and for those who value electoral fairness nonetheless.
