An American woman writes to her city alderman, requesting his help in facilitating access to voting booths for lower income citizens. The alderman completely ignores her request and launches into a racist, Islamophobic non sequitur, demanding she demonstrate that she is not a terrorist or terrorist sympathizer.

Would this scenario have been acceptable, much less imaginable, if that American woman had been Christie Smith?

His ‘apology’ was awful too.He has a history of this and more stupid shit and I don’t know how he keeps in power other than his voters support this garbage.

During football games — no longer confined to Sunday afternoons, but also Sunday, Monday and Thursday evenings — anywhere from 25-45 percent of a given voting audience is not inclined to answer phone calls, Maslin said. And in Wisconsin, it’s more like 60 percent during Green Bay Packers games. The programming schedule narrows the scope during which pollsters can get “a clean look,” he said.

from here.

All right, funny headcanon (Which is pretty much canon.)

Every personification in the state from as left as Dane County to as right as Waukesha County, urban as Milwaukee or somewhere in southwestern or northern Wisconsin - will get pissed if they get interrupted when they’re watching the Packers. (And other sports to a lesser extent.) Sometimes they might just pick up the phone and hang up just to stop the ringing. Green Bay’s rage would be especially legendary. 

Passionate Wisconsin might be for politics, but you do not interrupt the Packers.

Wisconsin on this principle would be miffed if he got a call that time.
