Scott Walker Is Alleging 66,000 Fraudulent Votes Will Be Cast In Recall Election

May 29, 2012

There is something seriously wrong with Scott Walker.

He is either one slimy politician, or one sick puppy.

Either way the statement made by the Governor of Wisconsin is a slap to the people of this state.

“I’ve always thought in this state, close elections, presidential elections, it means you probably have to win with at least 53 percent of the vote to account for fraud. One or two points, potentially … I mean there’s no question why they went to court and fought (to undo) voter ID.”

You have to be kidding me with this BS!

Scott Walker is trotting out the same slop that others in his party have tried to spin into a narrative that is supposed to make citizens feel fondly about suppressing the vote in Wisconsin. 

Problem is there is no truth to the lies–bold out-right lies–that Scott Walker is spewing about vote fraud in this state.  That his “Christian’ lips can utter such lies make me think his religion is more a prop than a life-altering experience.

So Scotty, let me set you, and your wayward friends straight.

There is not now, nor has there ever been, a long list of offenders when it comes to election fraud in the Badger State. In fact, there are very few such cases that can be held up as an example. But to hear Walker tell the story one would think that nothing but pure mayhem is lurking about at polling places. I can state no such mayhem ever was seen by myself when working the polls.  I hear of no such reports from my friends who work the polls.  The Attorney General can not produce evidence of such nefarious activity either!

This is pure BS from Walker.

Let us look at the numbers.

There were 2.2 million votes cast in the 2010 election for governor, and it’s reasonable to assume that turnout on June 5 will be close to 2.2 million again. Each percentage point represents 22,000 votes. Since Walker believes he needs 53 percent, he is alleging 66,000 fraudulent votes will be cast next week.

If there are so many examples of voter fraud why can’t the conservatives come up with a quick list of 100?  If there are 66,000 why not produce court records for 1,000?

There are no such lists of voting offenders, because vote fraud is nothing more than a political gimmick ginned up the desperate partisans on the nutty right-wing side of the spectrum who fear the electorate is onto their games.

Walker owes the citizens of Wisconsin an apology for making the statement he did about their civic-mindedness and integrity.

    I wondered how long it would take for the cigarette give-away (8 years ago) would take to be mentioned. Thanks for not disappointing bigdog. How about the $5.00 Subway Sandwiches Mittens gave away. Oh, that’s right, that was just in March, and the Repug D.A. in Whitewasha County said, “nothin’ to see here folks.” Of course he said the same thing when Scottie Jensen had state employes campaigning on state time, and wouldn’t prosecute. Is that conservative government? Having state-paid employes campaign on state time? A different definition of conservative. By the way, renting a video is not a constitutional right. So requiring an i.d. is not an analogy. A poll tax, utilized by racists and classists to suppress the vote, is. And you know what, the majority of voter fraud cases involve repugnants. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/05/us/indiana-secretary-of-state-convicted-in-voter-fraud-case.html http://wiscoprogressive.wordpress.com/2011/04/28/wisconsin-gop-voter-fraud-you-decide/ Do as we say, not as we do, and IOKIARDI.

    The issue here is not the merits of voter identification, The issue is that Scott Walker has made a claim for which there is no evidence. Also, known as a lie. And, Deke, I think the GOP would prefer that only white men who own property be able to vote.

    Lets face the facts that the GOP will not be happy until blacks are not able to cast a ballot again in this nation.

    There will never be a truly legitimate election until Voter ID is in place. That said, there is nothing stopping Democrats from using the smokes for votes drives or mentally diminished voter “help” drives. It’s so morally abhorrent to use such methods and it says a lot about an ideology and party.

    There won’t be an excuse, Gov. Walker will win….as to voter ID, what are you demorats so afraid of??? One needs an photo ID for just about everythings these days. but one of the most important actions that a person does for this country, I would think that one needs to prove who he or she is

    Well put, Deke. Unfortunately, Walker and his supporters know that they can tell a lie and the mainstream media will generally report it as if it were fact and without challenging it.

    walker is really really afraid of losing this election.he is so full of lies and his last mouth piece about the tax payers being the winner of the bid rigging he was involved with is hog wash. even if it didn’t go through he was still involved in the bid rigging and he is a crook plain and simple. it just didn’t go his way and it was still illegal.

    Well looks like Governor Walker thinks it is going to be very close, i.e. setting up an excuse.
