Ann Althouse has the whole breakdown here. But here is the part that I cannot believe:
The Government Accountability Board will only check the addresses and dates that accompany the signatures. It will "flag" names that seem suspicious — e.g. Mickey Mouse — but "will not strike them without challenge."
Since when is the name "Mickey Mouse" on a petition merely suspicious? We're just going to "flag" them? That sounds suspiciously like take no action, while counting that name towards the total.
Hey Wisconsin: I have a radical idea for you: If a name that appears on a petition is the name of a cartoon character or other fictitious person, the name should be automatically stricken.
|Hey everybody! I'm voting in Wisconsin!|
Maybe we should have some sort of requirement that people show ID. That's so crazy though, right?
