In other news, for some reason some places just don't seem to worry about voter fraud.
Last week Mike Sandvick, head of the Milwaukee Police Department's five-man Special Investigative Unit, was told by superiors not to send anyone to polling places on Election Day.

Gee, why would they do something like that just before a major election?
KTOK just announced that some of the bigger-area polling places have 40-45 minute waits. Which means, come afternoon...
Reminds me a bit of 1980. Second Presidential election I'd voted in. Wife and I got to the school right after work, big line. Before we'd been there 15 minutes, longer line behind us. That led, the next morning, to Ronald Reagan making leftists suffer strokes and cranial explosions.
