Skip to comments.Pro-Walker signature verification effort needs your help this weekend
Posted on 02/19/2012 9:31:55 AM PST by Qbert
As I reported the other day, petition signature checkers supporting Gov. Scott Walker are on track to identify between 100,000-200,000 invalid signatures on recall petitions.
That number does not even include duplicate signatures, and we know that duplicates are a big problem.
Supporters of Gov. Walker, however, need more time to go through the approximately 1 million signatures, and quite unbelievably, a judge in Wisconsin just denied a request for two extra weeks, even though that still would have kept the recall process within the statutory time period:
A judge has denied Gov. Scott Walkers request for a two-week extension to review recall petition signatures, saying the election is likely to proceed.
Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess ruling was a victory for recall organizers who had said there was no good reason for another extension and that Walkers request was an attempt to delay the inevitable.
Walkers campaign argued it had only reviewed 330,000 of the roughly 1 million signatures and couldnt get through all of them by the Feb. 27 deadline.
As reported at Big Government, the pro-Walker petition checkers are seeking more volunteers starting immediately, and with the tight timetable, they need all the help they can get:
The effort to independently analyze hundreds of thousands of signatures on petitions seeking the recall of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is reaching a critical stage, one organizer said Friday.
More than 13,000 volunteers have signed up with the Verify the Recall project to help with enter the recall petitions into a search able database.
The response from Wisconsin and across the nation has been phenomenal, said Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote. One strong push this weekend could help us finish the data entry aspect of the project and allow us to begin our thorough analysis.
Engelbrecht says its not too late to sign up to help. In fact, this weekend is a crucial moment in the project.
If enough people sign up and give us two hours of their time this weekend, it will make a world of difference, Engelbrecht said. This is the home stretch.
Volunteers can sign up here.
Even if the effort to stop the recall fails, it is important to knock down the number of validated signatures as much as possible and to show that the recall effort submitted hundreds of thousands of fictitious, duplicate or otherwise invalid signatures, puncturing the anti-Walker narrative.
If you can help, now would be a good time.
What’s a little eyestrain? You can do a hundred in a couple of hours.
I have been entering names all afternoon now. Everyone should do this so you could see with your own eyes how much fraud is going on: Illegible signatures, illegible printed names, wrong dates, incomplete adddresses, wrong municipalities, and my personal favorite, out of order dates signed with the circulator “verifying” signatures before they are even signed.
OK, I’m back into Verify the Recall and keying data. Join the fun folks!
How long does it take for them to process the form?
It has been over an hour since it was submitted.
Yep, I found a bogus address yesterday.
Wisconsin Cry for Help from Verify The Recall Ping
If you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list, please FReep Mail me.
Everybody who has not entered names, please sign up with 13,000 other freedom lovers and enter a few names this afternoon. Every name must be entered 2 or 3 times for the software to work properly. We haven’t finished Scott yet, and we still have to do Rebecca.
One of the things I’ve noticed is that 85% to 90% of the signers seem to be women. ???
I noticed that too. That is because the entire charade is emotion-driven and unfortunately, very few women think before they "feeeeeel".
Agreed. Sometimes I end up typing what it looks like, even if it makes no sense. Uff da!
Thank You for this thread. Signed on and been busy all evening and I even called my friend. Now she wants to help too.
Thanks for all of your help lula.
DH and I have been working on the lists for the better part of three days.
Thought we were helping the cause until an email tonight from “True the Vote”. Seems like they’ve changed the rules in the middle of the game. No more disqualifications. Anyone else disheartened?
