The phone number in the above screen grabs belongs to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s campaign headquarters. (link and link)

The secret plan was to bombard Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s campaign headquarters with calls in order to shut down their phones, just in time to screw with the get out the vote effort so badly needed by the Dems... in order to combat voter suppression and millions in donations by the Koch brothers.

It worked, according to Think Progress.

    I'll bet that ABC/Diane Sawyer will headline this story! Right?

    ...oh ya...not.

  • Thanks for sharing this, Laffy.  Interesting how the level of dirty tricks in Wisconsin has escalated, considering the forces of darkness are spending 25 times more than the forces of humanity, the nasty folks must be really afraid of losing the recalls. 

    They bad guys control all the mechanisms of voting from registration to counting and we know how incompetent Republican counters have been in their own primaries this year, let alone Wisconsin's history of Republican counters mysteriously finding votes in strange places.  They even changed the laws to suppress the vote.

    Given every advantage the Rovians have in this election, they still either feel a need to cheat, or they must get off on cheating...either way it says a lot about the seriousness of the coming week in Wisconsin.  If Rove and the Koch brothers are able to buy this election, then Barack Obama and the Democrats are in trouble November.
