Wisconsin Racine Co. Sheriff investigates bag of election materials found outside Polling Station

How did I miss this?

Doesn't this imply some fishy business going on?

And how can they consider a recount and including this bag?

If a bag suddenly turns up implying fraud, you don't just count the bag.

WE need an entirely new election, hand counted votes on election night, posted at the precincts.

Does anyone know what is happening with this, there is very little info about this recount.




Racine County sheriff’s officials confirmed Thursday, June 14th they are investigating a bag reportedly containing various election materials found outside Racine’s Cesar Chavez Community Center, which served as a polling place during recall voting.

Racine County Sheriff’s Captain Unette Lemke says a citizen brought the bag to the sheriff’s office, and asked that it be examined. The sheriff’s office was reportedly contacted by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office, notifying them the bag would be coming to their office.

Sheriff’s officials say the citizen did not make any allegations, but claimed they found the bag outside the polling place. Captain Lemke did not confirm this Thursday.

1. It was noted in Wisconsin Group when first reported

You might have missed it because you haven't been there...

Though more media outlets have noted the story, not much in the way of new information has been made available since then.

It appears to be a republican effort to subvert the recall of Wangaard.

2. Looks like a Rove-style set-up to divert 'election fraud' suspicions on to Dems.

This is exactly how Rove and his proteges operate. And it is no wonder that FOX is participating in pushing the narrative.

3. How funny! The Republican has ordered a recount against Lehman in Racine Co. Hm . . .

Wisconsin's board of elections has approved a request from state Sen. Van Wanggaard (R-Racine), officially ordering a recount in a recall election that some had thought had been settled in Wisconsin's 21st district.

The Associated Press reports that the state's Government Accountability Board issued the order on Monday afternoon, asking county officials to begin the process at 9 a.m. local time on Wednesday.

Democrats had earlier called on Wanggaard to concede to his recall challenger, Democrat John Lehman, who had already declared victory. The Racine County clerk had also certified the win, but Wanggaard's campaign had expressed concerns about the accuracy of the close vote, which showed the two candidates separated by about 834 votes, or 1.2 percent of around 72,000 votes cast. Wanggaard requested the recount on Friday.

4. The alleged election materials were not ballots

From an excellent Wisconsin blog:

The latest thing is a MacIver "news report" which says an unnamed conservative "just happened" to find a bag full of blank, but pre-certified registration forms. Yet when Channel 6 News looked into the story, they found that no complaint had been made to the election commission, but someone had gone to the DA's Office, but even then, didn't make any allegations regarding the mysterious find.

This is about casting doubt on the result of this election and the honesty of Democrats generally. Their side has also noted that almost half of the election officials working on the election in Racine County had signed the recall petitions so obviously, according to them, it wasn't a fair election.

5. But about the same number who signed the recall voted for Barrett in the election

 

The petition gatherers were incredible..they managed to get a signature from every possible recall voter.

And Republicans with no visible get out the vote campaign, managed to get record turnout to the polls to defend Walker. Right....

They expect us to believe this BS while they point the finger at Democrats? This is why we must fight these Crooks and Liars!!
