The battlefield is getting a little more crowded in a lawsuit filed by Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen against the Government Accountability Board. The Democratic Party of Wisconsin on Tuesday filed a motion in Dane County Circuit Court to intervene in the case.
Party officials says they are acting to protect the votes of eligible voters in the state who could be impacted by the lawsuit. DPW claims Van Hollen's role as co-chair of Republican John McCain's Wisconsin presidential campaign is the reason behind the lawsuit. The Attorney General is trying to get the GAB to use a statewide database to verify all voter registration records dating back to 2006.
The petition from the DPW asks a judge to allow the group to become a party in the lawsuit.
