Recall Fraud: Both the Illegal and Legal Varieties
It seems like every day we hear more outrageous stories of how the Blue Fisters, the Marxist Democrats, and the unionistas are showing little to no regard for the voters in the state of Wisconsin or our election laws.
They tell us we're too stupid to be trusted to elect a governor so they decide to conduct a recall on him simply because they disagree with him. What ever happened to 'agreeing to disagree' and waiting for the next election to support another candidate?
Oh, it gets worse... The Government Accountability Board (GAB) declared that anyone can sign the recall petitions more than once. Why would they legalize election fraud?
Then the GAB declares that, even though they have just encouraged legal fraud in the form of duplicate signatures, they will not be responsible for finding and weeding out any of those fraudulent signatures. No wonder people in Milwaukee are bragging about cheating the voters.
Then, to top it all off, the GAB declared that they will not even weed out the obviously fraudulent signatures of fictitious or deceased people like Mickey Mouse and Adolf Hitler. Nope, as long as any name and signature appears on the petition with a Wisconsin address (even a junk yard has an address...) then it counts toward the number needed to force the election. It will be the responsibility of the Walker campaign to find those instances of fraud and challenge them... Oh, by the way, the Walker campaign only gets 10-days to do that.
Just to clarify, the director of GAB, Kevin Kennedy, stated that the recall organizations will be performing those kinds of verification for them.
"The person who's out on the street and looking at that signature, they should be catching those things," he explained. "That's going to be the single-biggest screen, because for the recall organization it's in their interest to weed these things out."
What?! The same people who slash tires. The same people who assault elected officials. The same people who issue death threats to public officials. The same people who defecate and commit other lude acts on our state government campus. The same people who scream obscenities at an event for the Special Olympics. The same people who turn their backs on our veterans during a Christmas event. The same people who stop traffic and harass citizens to sign the recall petitions. These are the people who are going to be allowed to police themselves?! The GAB is living in Bizarro World. If it is totally nonsensical then they say, "go for it" but they won't tolerate any reasonable or logical solutions.
During the Kapanke recall process I warned of the fraud that Jennifer Shilling's allies were capable of. She ignored the warnings along with the media who is complicit for the same reason as the GAB. They will see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil as long as it helps support their god: Big Government.
Just this week I was made aware of new instances where identity theft may have been practiced on Kapanke recall petitions. A Republican voter from Onalaska contacted me after finding his name in the database of recall signers that I created in order to search for discrepancies. He informed me that he did not sign that document and that the hand writing is not his own. How many times is this scenario playing out across our state today in this latest recall effort? The GAB has suggested that they don't care if fraud is committed and won't lift a finger to prevent it so how are we to trust this process? Here we are several months after the Kapanke recall and we're still finding discrepancies and outright fraud but the election is done and gone and we're all supposed to accept the results even though the other side cheated in order to win. No wonder so many voters are cynical these days.
It seems to me that the GAB is deliberately attempting to give every advantage that they can to the Marxist Democrats and all their allies. Why would they do that? Don't they understand the consequences if Wisconsin surpasses Chicago as the center for dirty politics? I suspect they don't care. All they care about is giving more power to their god, Big Government, even if it results in sacrificing the honor and integrity of our electoral procedures. Welcome to New Wisconsin, the center of dirty politics and corruption. Shame on you Blue Fisters. Shame.
