GOP to Use Cops & First Responders as Poll Thugs

From TPM:
Wisconsin Republicans are going to be going all out in their voter suppression efforts. The Wisconsin GOP is currently recruiting "Milwaukee area veterans, policeman, security personnel and firefighters to work as poll watchers on election day at inner city polling places."
Is Blackwater next on the urban voter intimidation agenda? If this gets to be standard GOP practice nationwide on and before November 4, the Republicans could single-handedly destroy all of the good will built between first responders and average people in the wake of 9/11.
