Incoming Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Fears Tooth Fairy Voting

Scott Fitzgerald wants voter photo ID because he knows there has been phantom voting by people using multiple ballots.

How does he know this?

The fortune teller who brings his weekly delivery of magic beans heard it from a unicorn - - and that's how legislation will be written in the new Legislature.

The newspaper finds his claim false.

Will this dissuade Fitzgerald from codifying voter photo ID, banning same-day registration and other voting suppression schemes designed to tamp down turnout in Democratic student and low-income wards?

Not a chance. Like the Amtrak like from Milwaukee to Madison that Scott Walker killed purportedly over the annual operating costs, voter photo ID and the related legislation is not about facts.

It's all about partisan advantage and power politics.
