Appreciating Ron Seely's Live-Tweeting Of Mining Hearing

Set your Twitter dial to Seely's feed for gems like this:

Sen. Grothman asked how close Ashland County is to Gogebic mine site. Informed by Chair Cullen that mine is IN Ashland County.
And yes, for the record - -  this is the same State Senator and Colbert Nation "Lady Hero" Glenn Grothman, (R-West Bend), who recently opined without a molecule of proof that there was massive voting fraud on November 6th in Wisconsin.

From a survey posting about these wild and unsupported claims:
In Maine, the suspect voters were black.

Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster is once again alleging possible voting irregularities, this time claiming that groups of unknown black people showed up in some rural towns to vote on Election Day.
Wisconsin GOP congressman and high-profile bad loser Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's running mate, was smart enough to say "urban" instead of black, but the message was the same.

Though in Wisconsin, the fraudmesiter with data is GOP State Sen. Glenn Grothman, the pride of West Bend:
...Senator Grothman says that he believes it's possible if not probable that 200,000 people committed voter fraud in Wisconsin this year. 
The last Republican to put a number to voter fraud in Wisconsin was national GOP chairman Reince Priebus - - the same guy who helped steer Romney/Ryan on to the rocks - - and PolitiFact rated his claim "false." Five months later, an unrepentant Priebus was right back at it.

the "groth" in grothman does not refer to his brain cells.
