MADISON, Wis. A prosecutor said Wednesday he is investigating allegations that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Doyle's campaign traded food and money to secure votes at a bingo party.

WTMJ-TV reported Tuesday that Doyle campaign workers set up the party and offered free soda, coffee and pastries to residents of a low-income hotel in Kenosha. After the bingo, the residents were told they could vote by absentee ballot in another room.

I understood WTMJ-TV went "undercover" for the film.

In the 2000 election it was cigs for votes and students voting multiple times. Nothing has changed.

If Doyle is elected it will be like the day Clinton took office
From GOPAC: The ™ "REAL" Doyle on gun ownership:

001 State Legislature: Doyle had Senator Jim Baumgart introduce an "anti-terrorism" bill, Senate Bill 363. On page 37, line 9, and page 39, lines 6 through 16, Doyle makes the mere possession of a PRIMER or a cartridge containing a primer, a FELONY! Then, on page 41, lines 16,17, 18, 24 & 25, Doyle makes exceptions for citizens who own primers and/or ammunition as long as the ONLY guns they own are SINGLE SHOT FIREARMS! (View the press release) (View page 37 of the bill) (View page 39 of the bill) (View page 41 of the bill)

2001 State Legislature: The "Gun Lobby" supported a constitutional amendment to hunt, fish and trap. Introduced by Senator Baumgart, it was known as Senate Joint Resolution 2. DOYLE OPPOSED THE WORDING! When Baumgart accepted a change in the wording proposed by Doyle, the intended "protection" to hunt, fish and trap became invalid and worthless. The State Legislature killed SJR-2, but later passed an improved version by Senator Dave Zien known as SJR-5.

2000 State Legislature: Assembly Bill 605 (Gunderson) and Senate Bill 293 (Zien) would have made Wisconsin the 45th state to issue permits to law-abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons after they pass background checks and training. DOYLE OPPOSED this legislation, and continues to block efforts to allow the law abiding to get the permits to carry concealed weapons. (View article)

1999 State Legislature: Doyle had Senator Brian Burke introduce Senate Bill 301. This legislation prohibited any non-dealer transfer of possession of any handgun. A husband who gave his wife a handgun would GO TO JAIL. A father, allowing his forty-year old son to hunt with his handgun, would GO TO JAIL. The son, too. Exceptions for transfers involved both the transferror and the transferee submitting to background checks run by a gun dealer who had purchased a special $500 license. Both parties would have to be fingerprinted and subject to waiting periods longer than those of the Brady Bill. (View page 1 of the bill) (View page 2)

1997 State Legislature: DOYLE OPPOSED the passage of Assembly Joint Resolution 11, the second consideration of amending the state constitution to guarantee the Right to Keep and Bear Arms for hunting and self defense. DOYLE STRONGLY OPPOSED citizens in Wisconsin having a right to possess firearms. (View the committee hearing document) (View the article quoting Doyle).

1995 State Legislature: DOYLE SUPPORTED Assembly Bill 504.This bill would have required that if you transferred ownership, or just possession, of a handgun (to your wife, to a friend), then that gun would have to 1) have a trigger lock ON the gun, and 2) the gun could ONLY be transferred if it had a "LOADED CHAMBER INDICATOR" built into the gun! This bill outlawed the sale or transfer of 99% of the existing handguns in Wisconsin. (View the bill)

1995 State Legislature: DOYLE OPPOSED Assembly Bill 69. This bill called for uniformity of gun laws throughout the state. The intent was also to repeal certain local ordinances, such as the one in Madison that made the possession of ammunition required by the WI DNR for deer hunting a violation. Deer hunters traveling through Madison on I-94 would have been fined $1000 for each prohibited cartridge! (View the article)

1993 State Legislature: DOYLE TESTIFIED AND TRAVELLED to support passage of Assembly Bill 728. This legislation would ban the possession of any handgun with a barrel less than four inches. This bill would have outlawed 80% of the handguns in Wisconsin, with no provision to "grandfather," or pay any compensation for the surrender of, any handguns that Doyle wanted to ban. (View the committee hearing document)

1993 State Legislature: DOYLE SUPPORTED Assembly Bill 726, which would have separated gun possession and alcohol. Even beer would be banned after shooting at a gun club or range, or even at gun shows. It would have been a violation to merely drive into the parking lot of a restaurant that served alcohol if you had an unloaded and cased firearm in the trunk of your car!

As attorney general, Jim Doyle has been a leading enemy of gun owners' rights. Doyle advocated raising the legal age to buy a gun (View article), to extend the waiting period from 48 hours to seven days (View article), to require dealers to store their guns in vaults (View article), and to have the names of all gun owners sent to police. Doyle appeared in Milwaukee as a stand-in for Jim Brady of Handgun Control, and travelled to Washington to join with Bill Clinton in attacks on gun owners. (View letter)

Jim Doyle is a real threat to gun owners. There is yet another choice in the governors race: Ed Thompson. But with just 2% of the vote in the primary, and just 6% of the vote in recent polls, he won't win! A vote for Thompson will only help Jim Doyle win a very close election. Ask Thompson to support McCallum.

Authorized and paid for by the Gun Owners Political Action Committee of Wisconsin, Robert Powers-Treasurer

If they would find some really hot looking women to trade sex for votes, I may be tempted to even vote for a RINO. Sorry but Bingo, a soft drink and a pastry just won't do.

Please help out FREEPERS, there's tons of evidence we can post there from the public record.

Enough of it and who knows, perhaps she'd do a show on some of the stories some of the evidence is about.

Nothing new here Democrats have been doing this since the 1960s or sooner.How do you think they have become so powerful? The Democrats have a base the other parties cant crack regardless. So that automatically gives the about 10-15% of the votes before ever holding an election.This cuts the numbers they need during an actual election. This is fact tried and true.

Bush lost Wisconsin by about 5,000 votes. Gore won by handing out cigarettes, recruiting students who voted 4 times, and filling out absentee ballots for the senile and the mentally handicapped.

This is how Democrats win elections. Tell your Democrat friends to take a hard look at the party they support.

Presumably, you are not mentally handicapped. This scheme was targeted at mentally handicapped citizens and they were ushered into a room immediately after their "party" to vote absentee for their benefactor, Democrat Jim Doyle. It's disgraceful.

Its saddening that this story may go by the wayside for lack of honest reporting by Wisconsins' main media outlets. The Journal/Sentinel was defending Doyle in todays edition. The only voice we're hearing in Milwaukee is from the radio commentators. There is no other source for getting out the story. The urinal doesn't subscribe to a message board anymore. There is basically no outlet for informed voters to discuss the issues.

The bias of Wisconsins' print media has a lock on the information being distributed. It even defends, if not outright hides the facts from its readers. It's no wonder why this state has been overrun by clintonistas. It was an easy mark, and to think the President lost Wisconsins by only five thousand votes. Democrats can make that up in a few absentee ballot parties.
I'm sick of being screwed by criminals disguised as politicians.

Here's the media spin, grab the air sick bags, you're gonna need them!

This ad is no indictment of Doyle. But it is an indictment of McCallum and his strategists, who apparently are so desperate that they're attempting to unfairly tar Doyle in the so-called pay to play scandal

The supposed pay to play has the democrat state senate leader facing ninety years behind bars. All democrats are felons.

Reasonable questions can be raised - in fact, this editorial page raised some of them - about Doyle's decision to direct proceeds from a multistate vitamin price-fixing settlement to groups and individuals who later donated to his campaign. But Doyle has denied that he did anything wrong, and authorities have chosen not to investigate.

Nothing wrong with selling influence for power, to democrats it isn't. Plus it wasn't investigated because all the state attorneys are not only democrats, but also under the direction of Wisconsins' state attorney general, doyle himself. The same state AG who doesn't see anything illegal about selling influence. It was the feds that charged that little weasel Chvala. Just freaking shoot me! My state will soon be in the hands of the mob, only this mafia goes by the name democrats.
