Oh it's on now. In retaliation, the Racing Presidents delivered the "Federal Employee of the Year"' award to Anthony Fauci

How is a team mascot electioneering?

So athletes aren't allowed to vote now?

"Bango Bernie Brewer or Racing Sausages" is my "30 Seconds to Mars" tribute band, but we play everything with a neo-polka twist.

It's at Fiserv Forum.  Electioneering is already taking place.

/f*ck fiserv, they can't figure out how to do auto bill pay checks right

Encouraging early voting is not electioneering.  This is just another desperate GOP lie.

GOP Logic:

Voting is the cornerstone of a democracy, therefore it unfairly hinder the GOP.

FTA: "But Maistelman said it is clear what Hitt's true intent is: keeping down the number of people who cast ballots in Democratic-heavy Milwaukee during a presidential election"

Ah, the GOP proving once again they are an anti-democratic group of un-American asshats.

They know that the more people are allowed to vote the less likely they are to get elected.

Ya know I hate 'em.

Bernie Brewer should ride people to the polls in his bullpen cart.

Nope, having them there doesn't seem to include any of the prohibited election practices in Wisconsin.

If someone can point anything out that I missed, please do.

Well, maybe this:
" yler Barnes, a spokesman for the Brewers, said Wednesday that he was aware of Hitt's letter. He said the team had no plans to have players or mascots at its early voting site."

It's basically all bullshiat - they had no plan to do it to begin with. So it's moot.

Technically if, and only if, there is a stadium bond measure or equivalent sportsball provision on the ballot.

This however is perfectly fine at early voting locations.

Not sure they want to hit the state courts after Hagedorn dissented in May and Kelly got the boot.  Unless he can find David Prosser to choke him out.

Absolutely. Keith Richards is always too fried to play drums.

But Maistelman said it is clear what Hitt's true intent is: keeping down the number of people who cast ballots in Democratic-heavy Milwaukee during a presidential election. President Donald Trump faces off against former Vice President Joe Biden next month.

Look, I'm as pissed off as anyone about the 10000 things that republicans are doing to try and suppress the vote... but this is NOT one of them.  No one who was going to vote is going to stay home because the mascots won't be there now.

Not that there's ANYTHING wrong with the mascots being there, but not EVERYTHING is a conspiracy against you.

I would have thought that Republicans would enjoy a sausage party.

At least that's how I interpreted their wide stance on the matter

That's not the worst part: those chucklefarks drove in on a caravan of trump flag draping pickup trucks, honking horns and blaring music.

Oh yes, and most of them were from the derpy county next door.

Nowadays either Bonnie is likely old enough to volunteer at a polling place.

The modern-day equivalent would be Front Row Amy.

stoli n coke: How is a team mascot electioneering?


It encourages people to vote.

Since people overall are less supportive of Republicans than Democrats, increases in people voting is bad for Republicans and therefore electioneering.

Remember, Republicans don't want you to vote for them, they just want to rule you.

It isn't, they are just evil farks who will hold sway over the legislature for the next generation or 2 because of gerrymandering.
