Heads UP! WTMJ4 Milwaukee's NBC television will report election materials found in Racine dumpster

No details yet...on tonight's news at 6

Apparently has to do with voter registrations...apparently signed but not filled out.


Sounds like a republican group looking to authorize a recall for Wangaard is involved

RACINE — The Racine County District Attorney's office has asked the Racine County Sheriff's Office to investigate alleged voting irregularities that may have taken place in the city of Racine during the recall election. According to a news release issued by the Sheriff's Office Thursday afternoon, a citizen notified District Attorney Rich Chiapete on Monday that they had recovered suspicious voter registration documents from a dumpster at the Cesar Chavez Center, 2221 Douglas Ave.

Chiapete contacted the department again on Wednesday, the release states, asking that the department contact individuals alleging that voting irregularities occurred at the Dr. John Bryant Center, 601 21st Street. The Sheriff's Office said it is investigating both claims and will release more information.

Besides the recall of Gov. Scott Walker, Racine ballots also included a recall race for Senate District 21. A vote canvass in Racine County found Democrat John Lehman had 834 votes more than incumbent Republican Van Wanggaard.

3. My immediate reaction is it is a Republican plant of fake evidence to invalidate the Lehman election

4. That's what I'm thinking. Walker-ssippi only needs to invalidate this one election to have

complete Tea Bag control of the state again.

5. Like anyone that would dick with an election would leave the evidence in a dumpster behind the.....

polling place.

This thing reeks of a setup.

6. If the OP is correct and these were registration forms signed but not filled out...

Then yes, I would suspect it was planted. How many people sign a voter registration form but don't fill it out? Who dug these out of the dumpster and what was their reason for digging in the dumpster? Election fraud is a very serious issue and these claims need to be investigated, but if the OP is correct about the forms not being filled out then that is a huge red flag that someone may have planted these for the sole purpose of creating the illusion of election fraud. When the forms are not filled out no one can track down the people who signed them. A person who was legitimately registering to vote would have every reason to fill out the form and no reason not to. A person planting the forms to create the illusion of fraud however would not want the forms to be filled out because that would make the investigator's job too easy and they don't want them to figure out the forms were planted. If the OP is correct and these forms were not filled out that screams to me that they were probably planted.

Racine Co. Sheriff investigates bag of election materials


RACINE — 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 told FOX6 News 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.

A staff member from Racine’s Cesar Chavez Community Center said he received a call from Racine’s County Clerk, asking whether the center had received any complaints of voter irregularities, but he said the center had not.

9. So it wasn't even planted at the CCCC

someone just carried it into the cop shop and said, "here, I found these behind the CCCC in the trash."? That's not suspicious at all...no, not at all.

11. Would the person who 'found' the materials submit to a lie detector test?

I doubt it.
