Complaints about election observers in Wisconsin

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports on what Assistant District Attorney Bruce Landgraf "the usual array of complaints" to Milwaukee County's voting integrity hotline: 

Three or four people had called in with complaints of overly aggressive election observers. Teams of one attorney and one police officer each had been dispatched to deal with those situations, Landgraf said.

Meanwhile, partisan poll watchers in Milwaukee's Merrill Park said they could not hear voters stating their names as they signed in -- a common complaint due to limited seating.

Milwaukee is one of 51 jurisdictions in 23 states being monitored by the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division.
