LWV: Bitches Will Cut You

Most people think of the League of Women Voters as a nice group of old ladies who work at polling places on Election Day...and they are. But that doesn't mean they aren't stone cold killa's if you fuck with voting rights.

The League of Women was founded by Carrie Chapman Catt in 1920. This chick worked for years to get women the right to vote -  a right that could only be won by getting men to vote to say they could. Suckers.

Catt actually ran for President and marched against Jewish discrimination in Europe years before any American politicians had much to say about it. Catt was born right here in Wisconsin, a detail not forgotten by the modern day League of Women voters in Wisconsin.

So on Thursday, the Wisconsin League of Women Voters filed a lawsuit in Dane county stating the new Voter ID law is quite unconstitutional.

Many will just dismiss this lawsuit as a pro forma position on a law they don't like, so like recalls, it's just a whiny legal maneuver. The Siren offers caution. The League of Women voters takes their history and commitment to voting very seriously. Mess with votes - these bitches will cut you.
