Wisconsin Election Fraud: Fool Me Twice, Shame on Me
August 9, 2011

As Wisconsin’s recall election results are coming in, an editorial in the Sheboygan Press calls out a new and pervasive kind of voter fraud. Before the election, letters and phone calls went out to some Wisconsin voters (guess which districts) giving false information about how and when to vote.
In some cases, there have been incorrect addresses for where to send the application, or an incorrect date that the ballot must be returned by in order to be counted. The [Wisconsin Government Accountability] board said it also has received complaints about automated phone calls that have contained incorrect dates and other election information……When confronted about the false information, the group sponsoring the mailer or robo-call has claimed it was an “honest mistake” or typographical error.
We saw this before in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race.
