Re: Disenfranchisement in PA


There is no such thing as disfranchisement in a primary election. Primary elections are party business and it seems to me the political parties are private bodies and have no special claim upon the public coffer or law enforcement to uphold pledges of party loyalty.

In fact, I think the parties should be told they have to fund primaries on their own w/o public assistance. If this means caucuses open only to paid party members then so be it.

However, I understand your point is to show how Wisconsin is such an oddball when it comes to voter id and registration and the like.
