MADISON (WRN) Some tough questions for the head of the state's elections agency.
Government Accountability Board Executive Director Kevin Kennedy testifying on voter registration lists to the Assembly Committee on Elections. Kennedy was on the offensive as GOP members tried to link GAB maintenance of the statewide voter registration system to voter fraud.
Kennedy called to testify because GAB had admitted that statewide voter registration lists would not be updated in time for the spring elections. Kennedy says GAB was constrained, because some 156 municipalities failed to update voter information after the November election - and 36 have still failed to do so. GAB had sent cards out to update the lists - although that job was to have been handled by local clerks.
