PolitiusUSA was one of the first to report voter fraud in Wisconsin with dead men signing recall petitions. On May 1st, 2011 we reported,
Bill Pocan, is the father of Democratic State Representative Mark Pocan from Wisconsin. Mark’s father passed away long ago, but that didn’t prevent him from signing a recall petition for Representative Pocan’s colleague, State Senator Bob Wirch of Kenosha. On page 362 of the Wirch recall petition, you will find the address and signature of Bill Pocan. The date this was signed was March 3rd.
In a press release by the Democratic Party Of Wisconsin,
MADISON – A formal challenge to be filed later today against Republican recall petitions asks the Government Accountability Board to disqualify thousands of invalid signatures, and reject recall elections against three Democratic state senators, because widespread and systemic election fraud has tainted the entire GOP operation.
“The overwhelming evidence clearly shows a pervasive pattern of election fraud committed by the shady out-of-state organization hired by Republicans to collect recall petitions,” said Senate Democratic Leader Mark Miller. “Thousands of Wisconsin citizens fell victim to lies and misinformation spread by the circulators, and the papers submitted by this operation contain a river of omissions and wrong information.”
Miller continued: “We believe that when the facts are reviewed, the GAB will throw out thousands of flawed signatures because they were fraudulent or defective. The vast depth of this misconduct calls into question the legitimacy of every signature collected by these circulators, and shows that the GOP effort failed to gather the valid signatures needed for recall elections.”
The GOP in their old fashioned ways OUTSOURCED THE JOB of collect signatures to a corporation named, Kennedy Enterprises. The Republican Party of Wisconsin paid this corporation nearly $100,000 to circulate recall petitions.
Not only are there fraudulent names, but actual people who did sign the petition were told it was a recall for Governor Scott Walker.
“Affidavit of voter in Senate District 30 attesting that circulator Richard Madrill claimed the petitions were to recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker.”
“Another voter has filed an affidavit attesting that circulator John Prijic claimed the petitions were for work to be done on a local park.”
Affidavit of voter in Senate District 30 attesting that circulator Annette Lord claimed the petitions were to recall Republican Senator Cowles, when in fact it was to recall a Democrat.
Republicans have a long history of claiming Democrats using ACORN and other organizations to commit “voter fraud”, but it seems as though they only say that to divert attention away from their own fraudulent behavior.
The interesting issue here is also the Republican’s fetish with outsourcing, can they not find people to volunteer? The actually hire out of state contractors to do the work for them.
Wisconsin Republicans are beginning to look fairly shady in this election cycle and subsequent recall effort. Be careful in 2012 everyone, the Republican voter fraud in Wisconsin will spread to your state if you’re not vigilant.
