Skip to comments.Dane Co. (Madison, WI) Sheriff says he won't stop felon voters
Posted on 10/09/2012 4:54:40 PM PDT by Wisconsinlady
In a battleground state where voter fraud has been an issue in previous presidential elections, one leading county sheriff is saying his office wont stop ineligible felon voters from casting a ballot. An internal memo from the Dane County Sheriffs Office instructed deputies and other staff assigned to the county jail to facilitate the absentee ballot requests of inmates. Sent from Lt. Mark Twombly, the memo specifically instructed law enforcement officials to not check on the felony status of inmates and to help everyone vote regardless of their criminal record. In Wisconsin an individual serving jail time for a felony or under parole or supervision for a felony may not cast a ballot.

If this gets enough publicity, it could get the criminally liberal sheriff fired. Let’s get it enough publicity.
Not just "law enforcement officers - unionized law enforcement officers.
So is this how it works now? Pick and choose the laws you want to enforce? Seems everybody is doing it.
We’re too complacent about voter fraud. We hear stories and say “there they go again” but it’s too serious to blow off as business-as-usual.
Voter fraud is illegal and therefore this guy is helping his already incarcerated population to break the law yet again, partially with his blessing.
We all need to hit every instance of voter fraud with everything we’ve got. Otherwise, like Chavez, Obama will win whether the American people vote him in or not
This kind of lawlessness is hard to address by the public, but I wonder if the Governor could have the state police pay the sheriff a visit or some other arm of government that has leverage over him?
And you think that you still have a republic of laws?
Everytime I hear anything bad coming out of Wisconsin, it seems to be coming out of, or caused by, Dane county and its inhabitants.
What a wonderful state Wisconsin would be if they could excise Dane county and drop it into Illinois.
Wisconsin voter fraud being aided by Dane Co. Sheriff. This is the same jerk who refused to arrest law breakers during the Capital Building takeover last winter and refused to protect our Republican Senators as they tried to get to work while the Dems were hiding out in Illinois.
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Dane County (Potsmoking, dirty hippies)and Milwaukee County (3rd generation welfare families) continue to keep Wisconsin blue, while the rest of the state is conservative and red. Unfortunately, all the fraud is coming out of these two counties also. Plus, they drive up from Illinois in busloads to vote in our southern counties.
If this is a state law, the Sheriff doesn’t have a say about enforcing it.
The Governor and his Attorney General need to get on this and read this clown the Riot Act.
Dane County has been in a state of lawlessness long enough.
The VOTERS have leverage over sheriffs in WI. In this case, the voters live in Dane County which is a little center of insanity.
Madison - 30 square miles of liberal swamp surrounded by reality.
This would seem to go beyond “officer discretion” into flat out abdicating to enforce the law?
writ of mandamus?
Aiding and abetting.
I’m shocked, shocked to find out....nah, not really.
LEOs will be LEOs.
Well, then, how about a Republican state Governor sending in State Police to remove this ahole’s badge and gun and his ass from office?
Is there NO “controlling legal authority” willing to do anything to stop this crap?
Still, he could help prevent an illegal act (felon voting), but it looks like he gets his marching orders from Democrats. gotta' get those Bammy' votes in, even if they are illegal! Will the sheriff go dig up some dead voters, too?
