    “They cheated for Bush, so hey, I’m going to cheat to get Scott Walker out of here”

    “They cheated for Bush, so hey, I’m going to cheat to get Scott Walker out of here”

    So says a man interviewed by a Wisconsin news station about his signing petitions to recall Scott Walker 80 times:

    Man:“I think I signed about 80 times.”

    Wainscott:“You’ve signed 80 petitions, you think?”

    Man:“I signed a lot of them for the past two weeks. I’ve been  seeing them at the Grand Avenue Mall. Out here by Pick ‘n Save and stuff like  that.”

    Wainscott:“Well, you know they’re only going to count one of your  signatures?”

    Man:“Oh well. Whatever it takes to get Scott Walker out of here,  I’m happy.”

    Wainscott:“That means signing repeatedly?”

    Man: “Yeah. They cheated for Bush, so hey, I’m going to cheat to  get Scott Walker out of here.”

    The video is here.  Unfortunately there is no embed code available.

    But rest assured, “punchy” Democratic spokesman Graem Zielisnki assures us that it’s not true, and that the guy in the interview suffers from mental illness and is not credible.

    Remember, the election officials in Wisconsin already have announced they will not be checking for duplicates, so the burden will fall to anti-recall forces, who already are organizing.

    I don’t know how it works in Wisconsin, but in California just because someone registers Democrat doesn’t mean he or she isn’t allowed to vote.

    LOL, @malclave!

    In many states, a petition page that contains duplicate signatures, minor formatting errors, or is collected by a non-resident is thrown out along with any valid signatures on it. If Republicans are trying they should be able to get a large percentage of signatures thrown out. Both parties are quite adept at challenging petitions and this one looks to be pretty shoddy.

    Isnt there a mandamus action to compel the Election Board to verify non duplicative signatures? Is the Board only populated by democrats? Why would repubs go ahead and condone democrat voter fraud?
