Dan Sebring: conservative majority on U.S. Supreme Court conspiring against Scott Walker

This is bizarre, even for a fringe candidate like Dan Sebring.

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.”

I’m not sure what tortured logic Dan Sebring employed in order to surmise that the conservative-led United States Supreme Court is conspiring to keep Scott Walker from running for president in 2016, but Sebring’s comments were telling in that they made it abundantly clear that Republicans believe they can’t win an election in which they don’t rig the rules to disenfranchise groups of voters (the poor, the elderly, minorities) who tend to vote for Democrats.
