Wow!  This is going to leave a mark.

"Wisconsin Deserves Better" is a brand new ad put out by the Democratic Party of Wiscnsin.  Check it out:

Sadly, it's just a web ad.  It SHOULD be an actual over the TeeVee Machine ad reaching plenty of voters.  It will remind them not only about Walkers failed jobs promise and Wisconsin plummeting economy, but of the recent revelations about his criminal scheme to coordinate spending by dark money groups by his campaign.  

You can donate to Mary Burke, Scott Walkers democratic candidate on Act Blue or the Wisconsin Democratic Party here.

Grab a broom.  We're trying to sweep Wisconsin clean.

In other news:

There's the Shorewood (suburb of Milwaukee) Republican charged with 13 counts of voter fraud in 2011 and 2012.  

Monroe cast two ballots in the April 2011 Supreme Court election, two in the August 2011 Alberta Darling recall election, five in the Scott Walker-Tom Barrett recall, one illegal ballot in an August 2012 primary, and two ballots in the November 2012 presidential election.

In the presidential election, Monroe cast an in-person absentee ballot in Shorewood on Nov. 1 and drove a rental car to Lebanon, Ind., where he showed his Indiana driver's license to vote in person on election day, Nov. 6, the complaint charges. Monroe owns a house there, according to the complaint.

That's right, he voted both in Wisconsin by absentee and in Indiana in person.  Now THAT is dedication to committing voter fraud.

The investigation started over double voting in Waukesha County by Monroes son who denied asking that an absentee ballot be sent to his fathers address.  They've gone so far as to test the DNA on the absentee ballot envelopes sent with other peoples names on them and only found Monroes.

Evidence also includes text messages he sent out to family members:

It includes text messages between Monroe and his ex-wife, sons and brother, strongly urging them to vote. One text May 23, 2012, to a son reads, "You must go to city hall and register to vote. Every vote will be needed!... Please please please."
He was reportedly very upset at the recall of his State Senator, Alberta Darling, as well as the recall of Governor Scott Walker.  Yes, this is how rabid the wingnuttia is around here.
Monroe faces various counts of election fraud, including registering in more than one place, providing false information to an election official, voting more than once and voting as a disqualified person, for a total 13 felony charges. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of up to 18 months in prison, two years of extended supervision and a $10,000 fine.
Yes, there is voter fraud.  Republicans are committing it.

Update 6/25/14:  There's a little more meat on the bones in the article in Shorewood Now, the local paper.  They go into each alleged incident where he used a relatives address to vote.

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.
