Wisconsin is gearing up to push dem election fraud stories
Recently, story ran over weekend that some dems slashed tires of repugs on election day.

This week, story about investigations beginning to determine if there was voter fraud here in Bush's favor. Don't be surprised if the story gains traction since it's a surefire way to counter the valid election theft stories in Florida and Ohio.

Stay tuned.

6. Vote machine fraud & dirty tricks by Repubs in at least 20 states & Wisc.
Widespread systematic vote machine fraud, and dirty tricks and suppression of minority registration and voting in at least 20 states in 2004 Election: summary of some of the documentation

Although it was thought that voting inTouchscreen machine counties produces no paper trail, this was not the case this year since the widespread problems found in the 2000 election resulted in 60 non-partisan organizations interested in fair elections forming a consortium in 2004 to provide an election incident reporting system(EIRS) for reporting election irregularities. Thousands of such irregularities were reported in several swing states, especially in touchscreen counties, thus providing a paper trail for election irregularities down to the precinct and even machine level in many cases. From this and other investigations, including the Ohio recount effort, vote machine fraud and systematic dirty tricks and suppression to reduce minority votes has been documented in most states investigated. It is also clear that this was a systematic effort, not isolated local events.

7. So why are only Repubs documenting & complaining to Media & authorities?
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 07:48 AM by berniew1
Repubs seem to be doing a better job of supplying documentation of specifics to the Media than Dems, though most fraud, dirty tricks, and suppression of minorities were systematic in their campaign

8. Or, why is MSM giving the Thugs coverage, but not us?
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 08:34 AM by eowyn_of_rohan
Or, why are Dems being investigated and indicted for illegal activity(eg, Rep. Gwen Moore's son, who took part in the tire slashing), but not Thugs like Blackwell (or our own Board of Elections head, Kevin Kennedy)? There have been dozens of articles in Wisconsin newspapers about 2004 election fraud (IN as well as out of Wisconsin), the Accenture contract, etc. but so far it has only been talk. If Wisc. really does pursue this with its characteristic spirit, it will benefit all other states' efforts, too. I have been trying to recover from the horrors and sleep deprivation of the past 12 weeks, so that I can dig in again, and I believe the best place to start is right here at home...

3. Hypocrites!!
If a tree falls in the forest, and the media is not there to record it, does it make a sound? This propaganda machine formerly known as the "free press," is continuing to make me sick.

5. Tire slashing is dumb. But the Repubs may have been busy, too.
On the Election/Fraud/Recount/Protest/Reform Thread, Dzika posted these.

11. I live in WI and we get a crummy Gannett owned paper and tire story
was on the front page! I was really ticked. I could write the editor, but I know the letter wouldn't get published. I didn't read other articles about it but from the small amount I did read it smells like a "plant". In the article the "witness" said they saw the people leave the Dem office at 3am in the morning and then saw and heard them return acting all exciting and hyped and talking about slashing tires. And to boot the kids are none other than ex-milwaukee mayor Pratt's son and the son of Gwen Moore the first female African American to be elected to the US Congress from Milwaukee, gee do you think there was any set up here? Duh!
