MILWAUKEE A U.S. lawmaker's son and three Democratic campaign workers were sentenced Wednesday to four to six months in jail for slashing tires outside a Bush-Cheney campaign office on Election Day 2004.
The men pleaded no contest in January to misdemeanor property damage. A fifth worker was found not guilty.
"This case had to be a public example of what can happen when you interfere with voters' rights," said Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Michael Brennan, who rejected prosecutors' recommendation of probation for the four men.
The Wisconsin state Republican Party had rented more than 100 vehicles to give rides to voters and poll monitors on Nov. 2, 2004. The cars were parked outside a Republican campaign office when the tires were punctured. The vandalism left the drivers scrambling for new vehicles.
Among those sentenced Wednesday were Sowande A. Omokunde, the son of Democratic lawmaker Gwen Moore, and Michael Pratt, the son of former acting Milwaukee Mayor Marvin Pratt.

I can't believe they were actually found guilty and sentenced.

You know 3 things should happen if you get caught screwing someone over on election day.
 You get a minimum of 5 years in prison.
 You lose your right to vote for 14 years.
 Giving 4 psychopaths 1 hour to use their imagination on the person.
That is the easiest way to do it. My preference is for them to shoot anyone on site caught messing with an election.

"I can't believe the families of elected Democrats could be so dishonest."

Not enough punishment, but good news nevertheless. Thanks for posting.

Frankly, I am surprised there is any punishment. I guess four months is better than nothing.
One punishment should be permanent loss of voting rights. But I don't think that is going to happen.
and the RATS take another one in the...
