This is really rich–the Busheviki searching high and low for evidence of
Democratic “voter fraud” in Wisconsin: where, in 2004,l there had been copious
election fraud committed by the GOP, in (as far as we know now ) Madison,
Milwaukee, Kenosha and Racine. (See my Fooled Again, pp. 141-42, 187-88.)

Making Sense of the Georgia Thompson Ruling
April 12, 2007
Thursday’s ruling by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, which immediately freed former state worker Georgia Thompson, was a stunner. Not only did the three federal judges immediately give Thompson her freedom, but they also delivered a smack-down to the Milwaukee office of U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic, calling the evidence in the case “beyond thin.”
So how did that happen? Why would a prosecutor, working on the taxpayers’ dime, press charges when the evidence was negligible? Why did a jury convict based on that same evidence? And why was Thompson given the unusual punishment of going to federal prison while her case was being appealed?
Why? Because the political climate-in George W. Bush’s America, in Wisconsin and in Milwaukee, in particular, where the case was decided-is so poisoned by political games that the jury sent a message that wasn’t based on the evidence introduced in the courtroom.

    Sen. Menendez Asks Sen. Feinstein to Investigate EAC’s Altered, Buried Report on ‘Voter Fraud’

    UPDATE: Feinstein Sends Letter of Inquiry on both Matters to the EAC…

    Guest Blogged by John Gideon

    As previously reported by The BRAD BLOG [1] (here [2] and here [3]) the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) is being accused of altering a report that they commissioned and that did not meet their expectations.

    In this case the EAC was apparently hoping to show widespread voter fraud had taken place in recent elections but the report that they commissioned revealed just the opposite. The EAC buried the report and issued one of their own that came to no conclusion at all.

    Today Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) sent a letter to Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, which has oversight over the EAC, “expressing his concern over the revelations and asking her to examine the process by which the EAC report was produced. Menendez maintains that the use of the EAC to advance a political agenda is a blow to the integrity of the electoral system and that an investigation into the motivations behind the panel’s report is warranted.”

    Mendendez’s press release on the matter is now posted here… [4]

    LATE UPDATE: Feinstein sends letter of inquiry on these matters to EAC, demanding all communications and processes leading to the alteration and/or hiding of both the EAC’s “Voter Fraud” report and the report showing that Voter ID laws depress voter turnout. Announcement and Letter to EAC posted here… [5]

    ADDITIONAL NOTE: The BRAD BLOG [1] will have an EXCLUSIVE new report next week, on yet another recently discovered and astounding failure by the EAC on the heels of a few questions we had ourselves for them over the past week or two…
