For all their talk about “rampant vote fraud” here in Wisconsin, conservatives have been hard-pressed to provide real, concrete examples of the vote fraud they say makes draconian voter ID laws necessary.
However, as Tony Galli of WKOW in Madison is reporting, we now have an example of vote fraud committed by a conservative, in this case Samantha Vos, the soon-to-be ex-wife of Republican State Rep. Robin Vos. According to records, Samantha Vos cast a vote in in Wisconsin’s April presidential primary election despite the fact that she was a resident of Idaho at the time.
Wisconsin Government Accountability Board records show Samantha Vos voted in the state’s April 3 election. Vos is the wife of Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester), the co-chair of the state’s powerful Joint Finance Committee.
But records from Canyon County, Idaho show Samantha Vos swore under oath April 19 she was a resident of that state since early March. Vos’ declaration came as she filed for legal separation from her husband.
Wisconsin law requires 28 days of continuous residency prior to voting.
