Grothman Disagrees With Federal Judges Decision On Election Laws

Congressman Glenn Grothman says he doesn’t see why a federal judge struck down Wisconsin election laws limiting early voting. He also feels there was no need to adjust the photo ID law. He says if you show up without an ID you can fill out an affidavit. He says that makes it a really “weak” photo ID law. Grothman himself authored law on limiting early voting to weekdays and regular hours when he was a State Senator. He says a judge appointed by President Barack Obama said the law is wrong because it discriminates against African Americans. He doesn’t feel that is the case. Grothman says the judge’s decision is based on disparate impact and anything could be interpreted as having an adverse impact on a race of people.
