WI GOPer Candidate: SCOTUS Is Conspiring Against Scott Walker's Presidential Bid
October 20, 2014

Dan Sebring is running for the umpteenth time against US Representative Gwen Moore. Last go around, Sebring's claim to fame was running a racist ad against her. This year, he decided to let his proverbial hair hang loose by going with a full blown right wing conspiracy theory:

Republican Dan Sebring, who is running to represent Wisconsin’s 4th District in the House of Representatives, told ThinkProgress he suspects a political motive behind the Supreme Court’s recent ruling putting the state’s voter ID law on hold.

“The United States Supreme Court said we can’t implement it for this election,” he said at a Milwaukee County Republicans party this week. “My personal feeling is that this is a play to steer the outcome of the gubernatorial election so that Scott Walker wouldn’t have a chance of getting on the ticket in 2016 for the White House. I think that’s what they’re trying to do.”

Yeah, okay, Danny Boy, whatever you say.

Let's just ignore that the SCOTUS ruling was 6-3 to stop the voter suppression for November, which means that two of the five conservative judges agreed that it would be untenable to impose such restrictions on such short notice, especially since many of the DMV offices were only going to be open a day or two before the election.

But what do you expect from a guy who thinks it's a good idea to hold a gun raffle at a family-friendly fair?
