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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
