Dirty tricks in Wisconsin? Ballots being thrown away in heavily pro-Prosser county
Washington Examiner ^ | 6/6/11 | Mark Tapscott

Posted on 04/06/2011 7:01:17 PM PDT by Nachum

Right on schedule, allegations that somebody committed voter fraud or other election illegalities in yesterday's Wisconsin Supreme Court balloting are being heard this afternoon in a county that voted heavily for incumbent conservative Justice David Prosser. Pundit Press, which closely followed the election balloting yesterday, offers this analysis: "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

And why wouldn’t this be happening? Each election they grow more brazen and the republicans quake in fear at the idea of calling them on it.

That’s why secretary of state races and appointments are so important. Secretary of state was one of our biggest wins in Michigan this year. We’ve already got two democrat bigwigs facing several fraud charges and an investigation is ongoing.

I’m sure the Justice Dept. will be investigating these charges of voter fraud, since Eric Holder is such a fine Attorney General. (mega-sarc)

The Republicans are in on it. They don't give a crap.

They just sit back and let the Democrats "find" votes.

It's not an accident. The GOP never fights back because they don't care.

Yep. Besides, they know it is the only way they can win, and since they are “nice people”, the end justifies the means.

Ok, people - you need to know exactly what happened - and how this might be a blessing in disguise. A kid from Mequon who attends college out of the area went to register to vote and request and absentee ballot. His father went with him. They registered the kid to vote, and he got his ballot, filled it out and returned it.

Shortly thereafter, the family was contacted by the clerk's office and they said the kid needed to provide a driver's license in order for his vote to be counted. The dad assumed he could provide this information on election day, and in fact presented a copy of his son's driver's license when he went to vote. He was told he was "too late" and that the kid's ballot had been shredded - a clear violation of the law.

What I need to know is this - is the driver's license thing a "standard" requirement? Because I believe we could get tons of provisional votes tossed in Milwaukee Co. if that is the case. I hardly think they are very careful about registering voters in some areas, and probably did not expect that it would come under scrutiny because they truly did not expect that the vote would be so close.

Check out this post I found as a comment on one of James T Harris' facebook posts:

Monica Suemnicht Sage Starwalker Congratulations! And a heads up for Wisconsin students, via the Ed Schultz Show: "Repost via Nick Ganser: If you are a student who voted in Wisconsin with a provisional ballot because you registered for the first time and did... not b...ring your driver's license or proof of residency, make sure you get that information to the municipal clerk's office in Madison, on MLK Drive downtown, by 4:00 today or your vote will not count in the recount. Your vote quite literally could determine the outcome."

Mark Belling, the occasional replacement host for Rush Limbaugh, has issued a statement:
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 driver’s 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

This is why $oros launched the Secretary of State Project. After 2000 and the Fla recount Soros saw the importance of getting in his stooges as secretaries of states. That's why the country is saddled with Frankinberry in the Senate. It's why virtually every recount always goes to the progressive. (Case in point CT governor's race)

We defeated one of the worst of the SOS project candidates. Jocelyn Benson was groomed to steal elections. Now She’s very likely one of those under investigation here in Michigan.

I wonder how many of these students don't have ID showing proof of residency in their Wisconsin school's district. Often paying in-state tuition conflicts with being a dependent on their parents' IRS return. Maybe some of the fraud perpetrated by claiming both residences will be eliminated. Students without proper local ID simply won't show up on MLK Drive. 'Rats will then claim voter intimidation...gag.

Brings to mind the universal expression: "Nothing good ever happens on Martin Luther King Drive."

Does this mean that provisionals are going to be added to Klipkloppers totals?

I was thinking maybe the Democrat Senators would run away again because Republicans would have to give them the 24 or 48 hours before a vote to avoid the suit.

This account is bogus. I live in that county (Ozaukee) and I’ve been an election inspector for 10 years. From what I hear, a college student came home on break and went to City Hall to register to vote and to vote absentee. New registrants must provide their drivers’ license number to register for the first time. The student did not have his DL with him and the deputy clerk told him to bring it back so that his ballot would be cast and counted. Until they had the number, his ballot would be considered provisional.

He did not bring his number back within the time allotted, and the clerks threw his ballot away. I have no idea why they did this because he should have had until 4 pm today to furnish his DL number. Clearly the clerk was out of line.

The alleged victorious Kloppenbug was shown on the news this evening in Chicago. I still cannot believe she has been given a seat on the WI Supreme Court for ten years. The union/leftists of WI have shown that we have progressed to “Every man for Himself” in our political process, if this is what can get elected.

Quite possibly. All of the required ID needed to be on file by this afternoon. If all is in order, the questioned ballot will be cast and added to the ballots voted yesterday.

I believe it was in 2004 that everyone had to re-register, providing ID. it may have been for the next election after that, but I think I recall the election people offering to re-register anyone right then and there in 2004, if they wanted that.

Of course, I live in a township with 504 eligible voters and the election ladies all know us by name, on sight.

That might be what the leftist WI judges are counting on. If you give them 24 hours they run away. Otherwise the judges delay the law until Klingonburger gets sworn in on the WI supreme court, to make a union goon majority.

Seems like the left is losing patience with Democracy,it looks like no matter how they spin the media and the education-people just don’t like the reality that they’ve created.

If they are down to fighting tooth and nail in Wisconsin,eventually they will be down to fighting tooth and nail in California.

I don’t expect the blue States to go easy,at the end of the day the Democrat machine views the people,the income from these people as basically their property or their rents for them to redistribute as they see fit.

And 204 votes...........that is not enough to constitute either a landslide or anything else major,maybe it will survive the recount and maybe it won’t.

Good idea. They should spring it on them when they’re all in the chamber. And have the Sargent at arms lock the damn doors.

So who’s the patron saint of stolen elections? Saint Chad perhaps. Maybe he call pull an absentee ballot/recount miracle. It’s about time one of those goes our way.

The problem is that you would have to lock the doors at least 24 hours, to avoid the same kind of lawsuit about the 24-hour notice.

Then abortion became the law of the land. If you can justify murder all the other thing seem like child's play.

Regardless of the validity of the claim here, from now on the recount and legalities are completely in liberal hands ...

The goof news is that if you throw out Dane County votes, the rest of Wisconsin is firmly Republican and Prosser won 53-47.

I guess the father taking the son to the Election Office thought that his word would be sufficient for the son’s eligibility. But anyone who believes that he is entitled to register to vote (he must have just recently turned the legal age) without showing adequate proof of identity is too much of a slacker to be entitled to the privilege of a vote.

Who goes out of the house for such an important event without his wallet/ID?

He couldn’t even get inside a Federal Office Building without ID!
