(Possible) Election Fraud in Wisconsin

    Have you guys been following the ongoing saga in Wisconsin (centered around the upcoming recall elections for replacing state senators)?

    First, we had the passage of a GOP-backed Voter ID law, which enforces stricter requirements (photo ID) to vote. Democrats are saying that this law was aimed at their constituents, specifically college students and the poor (Link).

    Next, we had a building burn to the ground just 10 days before the election. The building just happened to hold campaign offices for a left-leaning PAC (Link).

    Now, mailers were sent out to voters with information about absentee ballots. The problem is, the mailers had the wrong date (deadline listed as day after the election), and a mysterious address for sending in ballots (ballots would go to a conservative advocacy group, not an official government office). (Link)

    So, is this all a string of coincidences, or is there real election fraud being perpetrated by the Wisconsin GOP? Why is this not getting more national attention? What can be done?

    yes, too bad congress won't investigate because the house is controlled by republicans who only investigate democrats.

    Any bets that the Wisconsin GOP tries to get rid of recall elections next?

    That sounds like a reasonable course of action by them.... They already are passing laws to help their elections in the future. For example, they created a bunch of strict voter id laws which require you to go to the DMV and then they closed a bunch of DMVs in democratic districts.

    If I were the Democrats, I'd challenge that law with a proposal that the government provides FREE photo ID's to all eligible voters

    My mom is having carpal tunnel surgery on the ninth.
    We had fun voting in the forced primary & flashing our ID's.
    Not sure what time the surgery is scheduled for yet, but she isn't worried.
    The surgery is being done on her left hand and she favors the right.

    We won't be voting in favor of the iron fist of the Right, though.

    It's not the GOP doing it, it's a group of professionals hired by the GOP by the nod of a GOP head and with other groups' interests and money in mind. Keep listening for what all will happen next.
