First reports of Wisconsin recall petition fraud?

Could be, could be:

The Racine County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate possible fraudulent recall signatures collected by Mark Demet, a Racine man whose brother’s signature was found four times on petitions to recall Sen. Van Wanggaard, R-Racine. His mother’s signature was also found twice.

But both say they didn’t sign, said Capt. Thomas Lamke of the Racine County Sheriff’s Office.

This is, by the way, a felony: and if this guy is convicted of it then I recommend the full fine and jail time.  If that sounds overly harsh, well, nobody is out there forcing people to fraudulently sign other people’s name to official election documents.  For that matter, it’s long since past time that somebody got it through Wisconsin progressives’ heads that their petulant collective refusal to accept that they lost an election doesn’t actually give them an excuse to do whatever damage that they like to civic structures in their home state.  It’s a heck of a thing to have to use felony convictions to drive that point home, but then, if you want to train a jackass the first thing you have to do is to get its attention…

  1. You do need to have big enough two by four, so it may take a felony conviction to make them see the rules matter.

  2. Kathy Demet, Mark Demet’s ex-wife, said she has talked to Mark Demet about the signatures.

    “I think he did some joking around and he is going to get in trouble for it,” Kathy Demet said. “It’s a shame, he’s a good person … I don’t think he would do anything intentionally to hurt anyone.”

    Of COURSE he’s a good person. Sure, it’s a felony but it’s all in good fun, right? Why don’t we conservatives have a sense of humor about these things?

  3. Perspective isn’t present in WI right now.

    Any minor infraction from the D side of the world should be prosecuted to fullest extent of the law. Turnabout is fair play.
