"five times."
 
2014-06-24 10:03:47 AM  
A Wisconsin insurance executive and Republican donor was charged with voting illegally more than a dozen times in four elections.

Wow!  Good one.  And not even a "I forgot to register at my new address" thing.  This was massive and intentional.  And he almost got his son in trouble over his own misdeeds, to boot.

Swell guy.

Ha!

Nice try, libturdingos. It's not voter fraud when conservatives do it.

Check. Mate.

This is why the GOP is so sure there is rampant voter fraud going on.

Yeah, highlights a much deeper problem.  They are absolutely sure "the other side" does all these terrible things mostly because they are guilty of them themselves.

If only we had checked his ID when he mailed in absentee ballots.

You got 1 last chance to get rid of this turdburger this November, dont fark up again Wisconsin. I'm sorry i wont be there to help out Mary Burke.

Time to send the Black Panthers to Wisconsin as poll watchers so these uppity whites don't corrupt our elections.
 
2014-06-24 12:53:30 PM  
It can't be voter fraud if the person doing it is white, male and Republican

i take Medicine for ADD, and i can say that i don't think i've ever forgotten something that i did over 50 times, much less something illegally.

"We need to have better protection against voter fraud, it's the only way to stop us."
 
2014-06-24 12:56:06 PM  
The real question is exactly how voter ID would have stopped this.
 
2014-06-24 12:56:10 PM  
So we've conclusively proved then that maybe as many as a half dozen people in each state will try something stupid during each election cycle. Most are then caught and determined to be jackasses or mentally ill. This then results in fewer fraudulent votes than there are write-ins for "Mickey Mouse."

Got it.
 
2014-06-24 12:56:18 PM  
Look, there IS voter fraud, and we're going to prove it, even if we have to commit it ourselves to make it true!

Ever notice when the right is up in arms and claiming that the left is doing something wrong or bad, reality shows it was the right doing it all along?

For his part, Monroe insisted to investigators that he did not remember voting in the elections because he takes drugs for Attention Deficit and Obsessive Compulsive disorders.


Jesus farking Christ... Yet he drove to farking Indiana in this supposed blackout state? Let's get him for all of the people he endangered on the road, then...
 
2014-06-24 01:03:13 PM  
Of course, forcing him to provide photo ID would do absolutely nothing to stop it

Kind of when gun nuts accuse anyone in favor of basic gun regulations as reacting purely on emotion and unfounded fears, then they proceed to talk about how it's super important to carry a gun everywhere to defend the innocent against the violent criminals all around us and also it's important to own a semiautomatic assault rifle in order to stop the next hitler from taking over America?

Lost Thought 00: Of course, forcing him to provide photo ID would do absolutely nothing to stop it



I love how the GOP has basically outright admitted on several occasions that the only purpose of their voter ID laws is to prevent likely democratic voters from casting their votes.

And this, friends, is why Republicans focus on the sort of fraud (however inconsequential) that would be prevented by requiring voter ID. If they keep people looking at that sort of fraud, they *aren't* looking at the kind of fraud that ID wouldn't prevent...which is the kind of fraud that Republicans keep committing.
 
2014-06-24 01:09:08 PM  
The whole purpose of Voter ID is not to prevent voter fraud, but make it easier for Republicans to commit voter fraud while excluding woman and the old and the poor so the total numbers don't seem to change.
 
2014-06-24 01:10:21 PM  
False flag.  Fraud - any kind of fraud - is perpetrated exclusively by Libtarded democrat Libradors who lib all over the place.

He could spend up to 18 months in prison, and pay a $10,000 fine for each charge.

This is why the whole suggestion of rampant voter fraud is so idiotic. It's an enormous risk for such a minuscule reward.
 
2014-06-24 01:11:44 PM  
Isn't it fun when right-wingers try to spin preventing poor people from voting as a noble battle against voter fraud?

He's an insurance executive; can't you tell the Democrats drove him to do this by passing Obamacare? We can just chalk this up to another Democratic attempt to manipulate elections.

10,000x this.  This guy voted what - 30 times?  The chance of those 30 votes changing the outcome of any election is miniscule, and you compare that to the harsh penalties for being caught.  It is a crime with an extremely low incentive and a relatively high probability of being caught, combined with harsh penalties.

Whenever there's a Walker discussion, you'll find me. I love talking politics, and living in this state his farkups affect me greatly.

That said, glad that our Fark IndependentsTM will soon be here to defend him and identify how the GOP suggestions for voter ID would totally wow I can't even finish that sentence it's so full of crap.

If Walker wins again, this state will be, as eloquently stated in V for Vendetta, "buried underneath the inadequacies" of the Kochsucker extraordinaire. Mary Burke, save us.

This. Bribing a clerk to illegally tamper with the ballot bags and illegally bring election data home on her personal computer is cheaper and MUCH more effective.

No problem.  We just need electoral reform to make this ok.

Since the Supreme Court has ruled money=speech, clearly wealthy donors have more Constitutionally-protected rights than most people, so it just stands to reason that they should get more votes.  They have more "skin in the game" and besides, they are taxed at the highest rates, provide a greater than proportional share of tax revenue, and do all the "job creating."

Meanwhile, it's not at all clear that poor people who receive welfare should even get one vote, since they will just use it to vote themselves more money.

/how's my attempt at derp logic?
