It’s the White ACORN

Just when I was contentedly glorying in the delicious schadenfreude of the Wisconsin spring elections, amid the predictable and plaintive wailing about election fraud from the usual suspects, I popped into the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel for another satisfying jolt but instead found this: In a political bombshell, the clerk in a Republican stronghold is set to release [...]
