    Who cares about duplicate signatures in Wisconsin Recall?

    Who cares about duplicate signatures in Wisconsin Recall?

    Apparently not the Governmant Accounting Board according to the McIver Institute (h/t CharlieSykes):

    The state board overseeing the potential recall election of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker tells the MacIver News Servicethat they will rely upon temporary workers to scrutinize recall petitions and those individuals will not be expected to catch any duplicate signatures submitted by recall organizers.

    This revelation comes as one statewide liberal group is actively promoting the collection of duplicate signatures, paving the way for a lengthy process wherein Walker supporters will challenge the validity of the recall petitions.

    One Wisconsin Now, a liberal non-profit, posted on its website “You can circulate or sign a recall petition even if you have already signed another recall petition.”

    This advice, however, will complicate the signature challenge process and runs counter to the advice of nonpartisan state election regulators.

    “While it is not illegal to sign more than once, we do not suggest people sign a second time unless they have good reason to believe the first petition they signed was somehow fraudulent,” Reid Magney, GAB Spokesman.

    Anti-recall forces will have to establish their own database and run checks for duplicates, in other words, do the government’s work for it.

    Update:  Petition circulators have been getting aggressive, as this affidavit reflects (via @SteveEgg):

    Republicans have to get ahead of this one and start putting obviously phony names on the ballots. When the Leftards think they have enough names, they’ll quit. Then when all the phony/duplicate names come out, the petition will be easy to challenge. Personally, I like to use either Adam Baum or Vincent Van Goghphuckyerselph. The moron who took my Vincent name on his MoveOn petition gave up trying to pronounce “my” last name after the “van”. Not sure he even knew who Vincent Van Gogh is.
