Shorewood A Shorewood man has been charged with 13 counts of voter fraud, allegedly using other peoples' names and addresses even driving to Indiana to cast multiple ballots in multiple elections.
According to a criminal complaint, 50-year-old health insurance executive Robert Monroe cast two ballots in the April 2011 Supreme Court election between David Prosser and Joann Kloppenburg, two ballots in the August 2011 recall election between Alberta Darling and Sandy Pasch, five ballots in the Gov. Scott Walker recall election in June 2012, one illegal ballot in the August 2012 partisan primary election and two ballots in the 2012 presidential election.
Each of the 13 charges carries a maximum prison sentence of three years and six months, as well as a $10,000 fine. The investigation into Monroe's voting history was conducted in part under the auspices of a John Doe proceeding into Walker's campaign activity, according to the complaint.
Although the criminal complaint does not state Monroe's partisan affiliation, a search of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign website shows he contributed $50 to Darling's campaign in March 2011 and another $50 to the River Hills Republican in July 2011.
Monroe's illegal voter fraud began in the Supreme Court election between Prosser and Kloppenburg in April 2011. He is accused of registering at his address in Shorewood, as well as in Milwaukee, using his mother's former Lake Drive address and a fake social security number. He is also accused of taking his son to vote in Shorewood, even though he was registered in Waukesha but was living in a college dormitory in Milwaukee at the time.
During the Pasch-Darling recall election in August 2011, he cast an early absentee ballot using his Shorewood address and in Milwaukee using his mother's former Lake Drive address.
Monroe allegedly voted five times during the Walker recall election in June 2012. He cast an early absentee ballot in Shorewood, and on Election Day, he cast ballots in both Shorewood and Milwaukee. He sent multiple messages to his two sons asking them to vote.
Posing as his girlfriend's son, Monroe requested Shorewood Village Hall send an absentee ballot to his address in Shorewood, even though his girlfriend's son actually lives in Milwaukee. Monroe voted and signed the absentee ballot with a false name without the knowledge of his girlfriend's son.
Monroe allegedly pulled a similar trick using the name of his own son, who lives in Waukesha. After receiving multiple text messages pleas from his father on Election Day, Monroe's son voted on Election Day in Waukesha, which caught the attention of the Waukesha Clerk's Office.
The Waukesha County District Attorney's Office contacted Monroe's son about the June 5 voting discrepancy on Aug. 1, just days after Monroe once again used his son's name to cast an absentee ballot in Shorewood in the August 2012 partisan primary election. Monroe did not cast any additional ballots once his son received the letter about voting fraud.
Monroe allegedly gave up false names and chose to go to another state in the 2012 presidential election. According to the complaint, he cast an in-person absentee ballot in Shorewood on Nov. 1, and then several days later, voted in person in Lebanon, Ind., where he owns a second house. He used his Indiana photo identification card at the polls in Indiana.
Monroe, who is not in court custody, is scheduled for an initial appearance in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Thursday, July 17.
Liberals have told us that voter fraud is not a problem, thus KO need for voter ID laws.
Voter fraud in Wisconsin
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Ironically, he would not want Republicans on his jury, one suspects.
I think the fact that it was a Republican actually makes a stronger case for voter ID laws... the Dems won't challenge the validity of the charge against this perp.
I knew he was a pub (or acting like one) when I saw the headline.
They don’t bust liberal vote fraudsters..
In an age of “open primaries”, him having registered as a republican means absolutely nothing.
Throw this guy in jail. Voter fraud i wrong regardless of which party they vote for.
We have to keep pushing for what is right as good. I know it’s hard to stick toe out values when we know how much the dems cheat.
If we stoop to their ;eve; we are no better than they are
Oh, I’m all for throwing this guy in jail. He’s a jerk who deserves what he gets.
Throw this guy in jail. Voter fraud is wrong regardless of which party they vote for.
We have to keep pushing for what is right and good.
I know it’s hard to stick to our values when we know how much the dems cheat.
If we stoop to their level we are no better than they are.
Liberals see no irony in telling us they know what is good for us, and then doing whatever illegal actions they think are necessary to force it on us.
You can tell he is a Republican because no one is making excuses for his crimes.
We don’t have party registration in Wisconsin.
Let me add - I wonder if he is a REAL republican or just registered as one to vote in their primaries and recalls
Where is the in-depth investigation into New Yorkers voting both in NY and at their FL addresses? When FL tried to clean up this mess, along with the dead vote, the DOJ was all over them for “voter suppression.” The Dems love voter fraud when it helps them.
Of course, we have NO idea of his party affiliation. Do we ever?
Party affiliation is moot.
Anyone who commits voter fraud should be put in a front of a Firing Squad, IMO.
They do when the fraudster is brazenly open about it (i.e. Melowese Richardson). But they are released after a few months and applauded with open arms at Democratic events.
Kinda calls post #1 into question, doesn’t it?
