Cleek’s law is a harsh mistress


It is not surprising that a Wisconsin judge would rule against the legality of dropboxes. The remarkable thing is how recently this became Republican orthodoxy:

While drop boxes have become one of many flashpoints following the November 2020 presidential election, there was a time in the not-too-distant past when they weren’t considered controversial.

For example, a Sept. 25, 2020, letter from an attorney for Republican legislative leaders explicitly endorsed the use of drop boxes.

“We wholeheartedly support voters’ use of any of these convenient, secure, and expressly authorized absentee-ballot-return methods,” wrote attorney Misha Tseytlin representing Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and then-Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald.

Personality cults are, above all else, deeply weird.
