Wisconsin GOP tries to stop Racing Sausages from promoting civic participation

The Wisconsin GOP sent a letter yesterday claiming that it would be improper “electioneering” and/or vote buying for MLB and the Brewers’ Racing Sausages to encourage early voting.

The legal citations in the letter seem … off.

The assertions with respect to campaign finance seem … at odds with the rather emphatic views of the Wisconsin GOP in particular on uninhibited election-related spending as a core component of free speech.

But I’m most baffled by the political calculation. Picking a losing legal fight with MLB and the Racing Sausages seems like an odd late-September strategy.
