Let’s Talk Vote Fraud

Any time an election year rolls around, some folks on the conservative side of the Cheddarsphere inevitably start screaming about massive vote fraud perpetrated by the Democrats in Milwaukee while ignoring the fact that an investigation by U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic and former Milwaukee County District Attorney E. Michael McCann found no evidence of widespread vote fraud.

While there’s been no tangible evidence of vote fraud here in Wisconsin, the same might not be able to be said in Ohio, where roughly 16,000 Republicans
could come under investigation
for possible vote fraud in regards to switching their party allegiance solely for the purpose of voting in the Democratic presidential primary, presumably to interfere with the process and aid a candidate they see as being more easily defeated in November.

The investigation comes 10 days after The Plain Dealer reported that more than 16,000 Cuyahoga County Republicans changed parties before voting March 4.

After the election, some local Republicans admitted they changed parties only to influence which Democrat would face presumed Republican nominee John McCain in November. One voter scribbled the following addendum to his pledge as a new Democrat: “For one day only.”

At issue here is the fact that voters in Ohio had to sign affidavits pledging allegiance to their new party in order to change their party affiliation and vote in the Democratic presidential primary. In Ohio, lying on the signed statement is a fifth-degree felony, punishable by six to 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Here’s to hoping that this concerted effort to interfere in the Democratic primaries – an effort which was encouraged by folks like Rush Limbaugh – will end with some criminal convictions, because our elections should never be tainted in such a manner.

  1. Wisconsin clearly needs judicial accountability. No man, woman, or child living in Wisconsin that can read or write can deny the Wisconsin Judicial System is Broke.
    We have witnessed JB Van Hollen buy the Attorney Generals Office. Then Annette Zeigler buy the Supreme Court Justice seat. Now Gableman is going to buy his Supreme Court seat.
    Newsweek reported on Gableman : “He wanted to be a judge. But he had a few problems.
    Burnett County needed a judge. But Gableman lived 290 miles away.
    An independent panel recommended two finalists – but he didn’t make the list. He even missed the application deadline.
    But weeks before the selection, Gableman hosted a fundraiser for Gov. Scott McCallum and gave him $1,250.
    Guess who McCallum picked?
    Tell Mike Gableman we need higher ethical standards for our judges.
    This ad is chock-full of facts, but they don’t necessarily lead to the conclusion implied by the closing line, that Gableman’s appointment was unethical.”
    Judges never forget their ambulance chasing days. They learn they have to be scoundrels to compete. It is part of a lawyers survival. Most lawyers are pretty boys or rich kids. Lets face it the average person thinks of making money to help the family etc. We all dream of college, some go two or four years no more because finances do not allow it. Only rich spoiled brats can make a career out of college or their dealers. I’m talking 8 to 10 years of college as a scoundrel does.
    Like running for president or governor. You must be rich and a dealer to make it. The myth of working their way through college is one in a million. Some do get grants like winning lottery. Or have connections.
    Lawyers never struggle or live a life anything compared to the average Joe. This has caused the lack of Common sense in our Courts. They have experience in decision making like how many olives in my drink.
    In Wisconsin most Circuit Court Judges are not elected as you would think. You will read every month the Governor appoints another Circuit Court judge somewhere in Wisconsin. As in the new Supreme Court race they state why they were originally appointed as Circuit Court judges by the Governor at the time.. As Circuit Court judges retire it is common practice to resign in the middle of their term. They have six year terms.
    This allows the POWERS THAT BE to stay in control in each County. It is then almost unheard of a Lawyer running against a sitting judge. It is suicide for a lawyer because spoiled rich kids (judges are very vindictive.) . It also would not be fair to future clients. In the Wisconsin race for judges in 2004 six of forty six races were contested. Three were against incumbents. Basically no election. Scoundrels are very competitive. This has allowed Scoundrels to make a mockery out of the Election system for Judges. In Rusk County the Scoundrel was appointed by Tony Earl in 1985. In Sawyer County the scoundrel was appointed by Tommy Thompson in 1994. How much did they pay the Governor to be judge? These are Heir to the THRONE or BUY the position. The Judicial Commission proved in the Zeigler case they are a FARCE! Justice is bought and sold in Wisconsin. Some Democracy. As we all Know absolute power always corrupts.
    That is why Circuit Courts now legislate from the bench because they have absolute power. They also use case law which is legislating from the bench. Also against state law that they ALL use. Like all Kings they receive their throne from family or financial ties. The biggest scoundrel wins.
    Once this scoundrel wins Wisconsinites all loose as the records show. All Judges must be elected with two year term limits. Allowing new blood in the courts. The system as it is the defendant usually is the most HONEST person in the Court Room.
    Putting a robe on a Lawyer is like putting perfume on a PIG.
    They are still SCOUNDRELS!!!!
    We should put a rope on these scoundrels and take our Justice system back. There are laws in place just the Wisconsin Judicial Commission is a FRAUD. This joke must be dissolved and replaced by a citizens comity. Not Judges judging judges. Judicial Elections in Wisconsin are a myth at all levels. Judicial ETHICS , Honor, Integrity, Impartiality, Truth, Justice, innocent until proven guilty will never happen again until the Wisconsin Judicial Commission is dissolved and replaced with HONEST CITIZENS. A good lawyer knows the law, a great lawyer knows the judge. It is FACT in Wisconsin Courts today. Go to http://www.wjacact.blogspot.com on how to return Wisconsin to a DEMOCRACY. True Reform Legislation. Even the Media fear these scoundrels. Wisconsinites are tired of having to prove their innocence in Wisconsin’s perverted courts.
    Time to make a Democracy out of this Hypocrisy
    Time to hold ALL Accountable.
