One More Dangerous Right Winger Running For Office

I just saw this ad, last evening, on television, for one Republican Will Kraus running, as I'm told, for Secretary of State.

And he is, once again, dangerous as so many Right Wingers and Republicans are.

And here's why.

First, he begins by injecting (infecting?) religion into what is a race for a government position by saying he's "Sustained by faith in Christ..."

Could we have at least a LITTLE separation of Church and State?  Please?

Next, he comes out to support the Republicans' voter ID laws and we know what those are.

Proposed voter ID law is both 

unnecessary and expensive

He follows that up by saying he will "... report Liberal schemes to cheat at the ballot box", all the while showing a sign for the Acorn group.

Investigations and facts from these have since shown that the group that tried to "expose" the Acorn group lied and that Acorn was doing good and important work.

Voter ID laws are famously, provenly expensive for governments, wasteful, unnecessary and discriminate against minorities, most notably Blacks and Hispanics but also the poor and elderly. Voter ID laws are created to take away the votes, disenfranchise Americans. Voter ID laws are decidedly un-American.

Finally, he ends this ad with the claim that he will "...protect the voting rights of our troops fighting abroad..."

Since when was that an issue? For whom is that a problem? Who is attacking American soldiers' voting rights?  Who's doing that?  No one I know. Not one person, not one group. I don't know where this is coming from.

It needs to be said. It needs to be clear. This guy, given this ad, is just either empty or out and out dangerous. Disenfranchising Americans, for one, to begin, is just un-American. 

He's dangerous the way Catherine Hanaway is dangerous and the word needs to get out.

Who knows what else he's for but just this one, brief ad shows he's dangerous and should be avoided at all cost.
