"Ballot destruction" being claimed in Wiscoinsin.
http://punditpress.blogspot.com/2011/04/wisconsin-city-...

As if the situation in Wisconsin wasn't tense enough, it appears that one county in particular is going to a new extreme. This comes after word that there may have been voter fraud in the nonpartisan State Supreme Court election yesterday between incumbent David Prosser and JoAnne Kloppenburg.

For some reason one of the counties in the state is destroying ballots that 'were not counted' yesterday. Apparently this is a very bizarre and egregious move.

14. Yeah, exactly. In a county that went for Prosser by.........
70+% the ballots that are going to be destroyed are PROSSER votes? Does this guy logically disconnect much?

10. This dude needs a spell checker... Mark Belling, from his conservative radio website
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 06:18 PM by Ellipsis
I have filed a Wisconsin Open records request with the City of Mequon demanding any ballot submitted but not cast in yesterday's election, including any remnant of a shredded ballot. We have received reports Mequon poll workers destroyed submitted ballots before poll closing time, demanding a drivers license number from the absentee voter. This request is unusual and the destruction of ballots is of grave concern, given the closeness of the state Supreme Court election. I will consider seeking an injuction to back up my request if Mequon officials are not copperative.

11. Check the source, for what it's worth. A blogger on "Pundit Press, All conservatism. No apologies."

13. And the only evidence cited in the blog is the claims of a right-wing radio show host
The Republicans always cry fraud when they lose.

15. One ballot?
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 06:26 PM by gratuitous
Was it one of those special "super" ballots that magically count more than 200 times?

And, by the way, even if true, this isn't "voter" fraud, it's official misconduct. If I had to guess, and presuming there's a scintilla of truth to any of this (which I don't grant in any way, but simply arguendo), I'd say this is a case where someone spoiled a ballot (intentionally or by mistake) and the ballot was destroyed so it wouldn't be confused with the properly cast ballots.

20. Election Fraud! Why is it always labeled as voter fraud when it is obviously "Election Fraud"?
Almost every time when they call it voter fraud, that should raise the red flag to republican shenanigans.
