OK

Looks like the telephone number used in the election fraud robocall from this morning that told people who signed the recall petition to stay home is a GOP party number.

Oops.

The allegation is one of two state Sen. Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee) sent to state election officials Tuesday morning in a request for an investigation.

Wisconsin Republicans are saying they are not behind a voter fraud allegation tied to a phone number registered to the party...

In her letter to the GAB, Taylor said that the calls regarding the petition signatures came from a Madison-area phone number. A call placed to that number came back with a voicemail saying the caller had reached the Wisconsin Republican Party...

The phone number is not the main listed number of the state GOP. The phone is used by the GOP for phone-bank purposes, including recent phone banks for the Tuesday recall.  

Wow.

Just wow.

I guess we'll have to wait to see how this plays out. Sounds like at least some in the Wisconsin GOP are feeling desperate enough to break the law, and it sounds like they're connected enough to use official phones.
