I was right when I speculated about election fraud in Wisconsin’s Racine County. In my earlier post, I pointed out that Governor Walker, Lt. Governor Kleefisch and 3 of 4 State Senators won by comfortable margins. In Senate District 21 (Racine County), however, Senator Van Wanggaard lost to John Lehman, probably as a result of election fraud.
Here are some links to confirm the fraud:
Here’s some on-the-ground reports from “Citizens for Responsible Government of Racine”
This is what election fraud looks like.

Caledonia is a small town in northern Racine County. The local paper, the Caledonia Patch, has done some great work following this scandal.

|Scott Walker (R)||7,959||60%|
|Tom Barrett (D)||5.290||40%|
|Rebecca Kleefisch (R)||7,863||60%|
|Mahlon Mitchell (D)||5,283||40%|
|Senate – 21st District|
|Van Wanggaard (R)||7,755||59%|
|John Lehman (D)||5,405||41%|
So Senator Van Wanggaard was leading his challenger by the roughly the same margin as Gov. Walker and Lt. Gov. Kleefisch in Caledonia, but lost the election? Doesn’t that suggest some monkey business in larger cities where people don’t know their neighbors?
In this article, Why I Asked For A Recount, What We Learned, and Why You Should Care, Senator Van Wanggaard reveals that “there were a large number of same-day registrations … In fact – more than 5% of entire population of Racine registered to vote on election day.” The population of Racine is 81,855 people, 5% of that is 4,093 same day voter registrations. How many of those do you suppose are illegal? According to the articles I cited above, poll workers were accepting mail addressed to ‘occupant’ as proof of residency. How lame is that?
We clearly need to do away with same day registration in Wisconsin and anywhere else it exists. In these days of ‘win at all costs’ politics, same day registration is a gold plated invitation to some people to violate the law and engage in election fraud.
I wish I wasn’t right about this.
