Despite the shouting and accusations from the Republican legislators about alleged voter fraud in Racine during the June 5th Senatorial recall…where Senator-elect John Lehman defeated Senator Van Wanggaard…there was NO VOTER FRAUD!
From the august Racine Journal Times:
County investigators have found no evidence of criminal activity after looking into claims of alleged voter fraud [...]
If it wasn’t apparent that The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has sold out their editorial and newsroom integrity to the right wing narrative, today’s paper ices the cake. Over the past month or so, MJS gave significant op ed space to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and State Senator Van Wanggaard to spout off about voter fraud [...]
To be honest, I’m surprised Van Wanggaard didn’t try “judge shopping” somewhere like Waukesha County for a friendly court… Republican state Sen.

More job creation by the Republicans in the Wisconsin State Legislature today from State Senator Mary Lazich of Burlington, who wishes to do away with providing comprehensive sex education to students in the state. It seems clear from the article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that she’s proposed the measure at the behest of Wisconsin [...]
