“Thank God, it’s the… Department of Justice.”

All eyes are on Wisconsin tomorrow, including completely objective orbs from the US DoJ:

State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, a Republican, announced over the weekend that the Wisconsin Department of Justice will be sending assistant attorneys and special agents to polling locations.

“The June recall election is a significant event in our state’s history. The people of Wisconsin need to have confidence that their rights are being protected and the laws are being followed,” said Van Hollen.

Seven teams will be assigned to Milwaukee and two will be assigned to Madison. Teams will also go populated areas of the state such as Appleton, Green Bay, Eau Claire and La Crosse.

The U.S. Justice Department also is sending observers to monitor the election.

The US DoJ put out a press release confirming they’d be in Wisconsin on Tuesday, among other states.

Also, David Axelrod said the Dems would “have an army of lawyers there [Wisconsin] ready to protect the vote on Tuesday.” Whew — I can feel the election getting more fair already.

Meanwhile, the closest President Obama has gotten to the recall election in recent days is this Tweet. Obama’s standing by Walker’s opponent Tom Barrett… just not literally.

I was going to post a link to the latest Wisconsin poll, but at this point it doesn’t really matter. The vote begins soon, and we’ll keep up to speed with everything tomorrow as it’s happening.

(alright, if you can’t handle the suspense, that poll is here)

Get out and vote, Wisconsin!
