Spotlight: Racine’s ‘partisan’ voting van

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON —  Racine’s “polling booth on wheels” has gotten a lot of mileage since the liberal voting activist group funded by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg dropped a generous “safe election” grant on the city in 2020.

    As quoted in the article of August 11, 2022, Abraham Lincoln once said, “A law without enforcement is just a suggestion.”
    It is clear that the city of Racine believes election laws are merely suggestions to be manipulated to advantage Democrats politically. They are not. Like all laws, the election laws must be enforced, or they don’t need to exist at all,” the senator said.
    So where was the enforcement of this so-called law?
