Judge orders WI to investigate itself, but...

Is the Federal Court's direction to Wisconsin to investigate Wisconsin's possible violation of Federally-ordered Voter ID procedures giving too much authority to the foxes known to have been in that hen house and fighting to seat there, for years, as I wrote yesterday:
Walker's people have been using the DMV as their blunt, ballot-busting cudgel from the earliest days of their corrupt, power-grabbing State Capitol occupation.
From five years ago:
Top DOT official tells staff not to mention free voter ID cards to the public — unless they ask
And while big-city DOT/DMV offices are open during most business days, offices elsewhere are open only a few hours or days a month.
Here's the official list, and we'll start with Abbotsford, the first location charted: 
  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday: Special Rules - 3rd Tuesday of the month 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday: Closed
  • Thursday: Closed
  • Friday: Closed
  • Saturday: Closed
  • Sunday: Closed
Not to mention Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel's long history supporting voter suppression. He would not be a neutral investigator, given his ties to Walker. 

I wish the US Justice Department and its agents had been assigned the task.

We need federal supervision of the November election. Why do you think big dark money intended when it made sure Walker and his allies were re-elected?

Turning purple Wisconsin red and scooping up its swing state electoral votes.

"The investigation concludes that there was no wrongdoing." Call me prescient.
