This week's Cee U Next Tuesday winner, for female excellence in the male-dominated field of douchebaggery, is Carole Aichele (pictured above for her "happy school librarian" pic), Pennsylvania's Secretary of the Commonwealth (their hoity-toity way of just saying "Secretary of State"). As such she's also responsible for enforcing the recently-passed Voter ID law in the state, which requires specific state-issued photo IDs to be able to vote. This has created a maelstorm of controversy, since figures touting the amount of people who would be disenfranchised by the law seem to be fudged, and the effect of voter fraud greatly exaggerated. And of course a Republican promoter of the law was caught saying that this law would win Pennsylvania for the party. The department of Justice has been looking into this and holding hearings.
Now you can argue either way on the validity of suppression claims, as well as the threat of fraud (which the state has yet to prove at all, and even dropped that claim). The reason Aichele is an incompetent nutball is that when she's on the stand testifying in a state case against the bill...
[Aichele] said she wasn’t sure about the details of the law, but stood by her unsupported claim that 99 percent of voters had valid identification.
This isn't fifth grade, Aichele. You are fucking paid to handle this, and if you're so damn sure about your position, saying "I don't know what the law says" is reason you should be thrown the fuck out.
So Carole Aichele (and by the way, you have way too many fucking "e"s in your name), you win this week's Cee U Next Tuesday Award, in the form of having to watch Total Recall 50 times back to back.
