Recall Violation Claims Come From Both Parties

Tuesday marked one week into recall efforts against Gov. Scott Walker.

With the recall campaign against Gov. Scott Walker a week in, people on both sides of the recall have been alleging fraud.

Some supporters of the Wisconsin governor and not turn them into the Government Accountability Board, as well as a that is called Operation Burn Notice. And now the Republican Party of Wisconsin has provided Facebook pictures – one and two – on its website alleging that people are signing the petitions multiple times.

Wisconsin GOP Communications Director Ben Starks said in a statement:

The complete and utter disregard for Wisconsin's election law by individuals associated with the recall of Governor Walker is increasing by the day. These repeated online communications are being posted by individuals who claim to have signed the same petition multiple times, signed on behalf of family members, and even under fraudulent names.

Other groups are claiming teens under the age 18 are signing the recall petition, but the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel spoke with the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, which informed the Milwaukee newspaper that the girls in question were in their 20s. The article also investigates claims that the girls were given cigarettes for their signatures, which the GAB told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is not against state law.

From this statement. "Concerning your forgery concern, there have been about a half a dozen actual voting irregularities in the past few decades. I don't know why you would think that your name, out of all Wisconsin citizens, would be chosen for a extraordinarily rare act of voter irregularity (in this theoretical case, forgery). There will still be an election."
