Posted on 04/06/2011 1:44:56 PM PDT by therightliveswithus
As if the situation in Wisconsin wasn't tense enough, it appears that one county in particular is going to a new extreme. This comes after word that there may have been voter fraud in the nonpartisan State Supreme Court election yesterday between incumbent David Prosser and JoAnne Kloppenburg.
For some reason one of the counties in the state is destroying ballots that 'were not counted' yesterday. Apparently this is a very bizarre and egregious move.
There is now a call for an injunction to preserve the 'discarded' ballots:
I have filed a Wisconsin Open records request with the City of Mequon demanding any ballot submitted but not cast in yesterday's election, including any remnant of a shredded ballot. We have received reports Mequon poll workers destroyed submitted ballots before poll closing time, demanding a drivers license number from the absentee voter. This request is unusual and the destruction of ballots is of grave concern, given the closeness of the state Supreme Court election. I will consider seeking an injuction to back up my request if Mequon officials are not copperative [sic]. Mark Belling, April 6, 2011

There is no such thing as a non-partisan election.
Sounds a little like a police officer holding a robber at gunpoint, and then ordering him to stay put while he goes to get an arrest warrant.
DECLARE THE ELECTION A FRAUD.
And you are a racist.
Well, it’s cheaper to destroy ballots than to create new ones. They are saving the taxpayer money.
I just hope they recycle them instead of throwing them in the trash.

same crap, different election
I’m never buying WI cheese again!
Mark Belling will be reporting this LIVE on his radio show in ten minutes...........listen to WISN here (Mark is off today for some reason but is calling in at 4:05)
It’s time to throw this fraud out and conduct a do over. Bring in Admiral Jimmah Cahtah, the expert on Banana Republic “elections” and his United Nations Nobel “Peace Prize” Voter Machine Certification and Underwater Mess Kit Repair Battalion! You can’t slip no voter fraud past those boys. LOL!!! This country has become a flippin’ joke!
Pinged to the Drudge Report...
This must be why Mark Belling has a guest host today.
See the last few words of this article’s posting. Mark’s name is there.
God Bless him for doing something.
He’s said he’s going to be fighting as hard as the left from now on, and he meant it.

Looks like any local patriots up their need to grab a camera and document what is going on. This is not a surprise, but it needs to be fully exposed and fought against.
SHOCK! “There is gambling going on here!”
Now that Republicans have finally awakened to the marxist take over of all things political and economic, we will be engaged at last in exposing how marxists are able to win elections. Lights! Camera! Action!
We might, (I say “might”) even fight back. How would that be? Change you can believe in.
The Chief Justice is a Rat and JoAnne Kloppenburg was one of her interns. She SHOULD recuse herself for a conflict of interest, but that would require honor and honesty from a Rat. She will NEVER rule against JoAnne Kloppenburg.
“If you don’t allow Democrats to steal elections, you have disenfranchised them.
And you are a racist.”
In Chicago, you’re also Zombo-phobic.
We have become just another third world hellhole banana republic.
I refuse to believe any results in this election now.
1) Call a new one.
2) Insure that all illegal aliens don’t vote (this insures that there will be far fewer dim-bulb-crat votes.
Anything else is a crime.
I agree, except that we don’t grow bananas... and we’re no longer a republic.
The Democrats have become so bat-shiite crazy that they don't even try to conceal their election shenanigans anymore. Maybe this will be the impetus for some common-sense election reform.
Wasn’t it Stalin who said...
It’s not who votes, but who counts the votes...
>>>Im never buying WI cheese again!
Awesome!! More for me. :)
I think it would be a good idea if someone created a central listing of all reported fraud in this election. I hear everyone screaming fraud, but there are is no documentation. This is the first report I’ve heard where there’s some actual facts.
Ballots that were marked in error are turned in to the clerks, voided, and re-issued before they are fed through the ballot box. This is standard procedure. The ballots that were not cast normally are torn in half, or the word VOID written across them, when they are turned in to City Hall.
As I remember, a change was made last year about how to handle them. We used to keep them separate and turn them in at the end of the night. As I remember, in Nov. 2010 we were told to destroy them and then discard them before turning all the rest of the election materials back to City Hall.
In any case, the point is to be sure that they are not left around so that they could be merged back into the collection of valid ballots.
I did not work the election this year, so I don’t know who the clerks were told to handle the spoiled ballots.
Exactly. This is a long standing pattern with the Left. Don’t back down. Just do it.
Declare the election void and do it again. The
bastards just can’t stand a fair election.
We have ‘non-partisan’ school board elections here. The candidates can’t run ‘as’ Republicans or Democrats, but they all run with endorsements of one or the other party.
Non-partisan is just another way of saying ideological in poli-speak.
This is no way to live and Pinarin is right, the United States is no longer a viable country. We need to be talking about terms of divorce.
Every vote must count and every vote that was shredded must have been for the Rat.
If they broke the law, prosecute. It’s the only way we will come close to stopping this stuff. The Democrats will keep doing it, because they always get away with it.
I heartily agree. But in many instances, in many states, the type of fraud committed by Democrats covers its own footprints, by design. In instances where the number of ballots cast in a precinct far exceed the number of people registered to vote or who signed the voter roll, it would be claimed to be "disenfranchising" to those who did vote in good faith to disqualify the election - not saying that I agree with this desperate objection, as all those who voted for the "losing" candidate in a questionable election were, in effect, disenfranchised. Such are the weaknesses of a secret ballot.
What could help is uniquely numbered ballot forms which are accounted for by a central, bi-partisan, office. Only those ballots of a numbered range assigned to a precinct would be recognized as validly cast - no more ballots "found" off premises. Electronic voting would be another problem, but I think that needs to be done away with. A supporting document needs to be preserved as evidence.
I think you mean all or most shredded ballot must have been for Prosser.
Yes, I believe it was. This country has sadly sunk to the bottom of pit by allowing a regime style political corruption voting process to go on this long without being checked.
Has Drudge even covered the election?
Anyone thought this would be a clean election is in la la land.
I agree. If it can be proved that shredding of ballots was done, the whole election can be declared void.
Not on a recount silly.
When the ballot box no longer functions properly or legally it is time to move to the next box (jury), but I’m not sure that one is working either.
Those discarded ballots are long gone.
To a Democrat, there is no limit to the depths to which they will sink.
Don't worry, the democrats can discern who they were intended for.
The unions, and their allies, want to win by any means necessary.
