Shocker: Democrats Already Claiming Voter Suppression In Wisconsin


Since the 2000 election, pitting Al Gore versus George W. Bush, it seems as though accusations of vote fraud accompany every hotly-contested election with the most ardent accusations coming from the losing side.

So it’s interesting that in Wisconsin, just 4 hours into voting, Democrats have already accused Republicans of trying to suppress votes.

With only about four hours into the Election Day voting, members of the Milwaukee Democratic Party claim that calls are going out to voters telling them if they’d signed the recall, they didn’t need to vote today.

Milwaukee County Dem Chair Sachin Chheda said that Walker supporters can’t get through the day without “cheating.”

“This latest lowlife sleaze comes on the heels of countless reports from around the state of various Republican dirty tricks on behalf of Walker,” Chheda said in a statement. “For instance, reports surfaced last weekend that Walker supporters are paying homeowners to post Walker signs on their lawns.”

Losing elections usually cause the losing side to re-evaluate their positions. But you never have to re-evaluate if you can claim that every election loss is because of cheating.

It’s a childish sort of politics, but that’s the world we live in now.

    Unlike paying a radio station or a blogger to run or display your ad?  What the hell is wrong with paying people to put a sign in their yard, sounds like a great economic boost for a neighborhood.

      It is another thing for the home owner to take money from a campaign he opposed to put a sign in his yard tough.

    The lawyers are licking their lips in anticipation of all the law suits and the Democrats/Unions will claim fraud and do all they can to paralyze the state, like children holding their breath and stomping their feet until they get their way. Walker and the GOP have lost – because liberals and the unions will say they lost no matter the actual results and this will be a mandate for Obama and the Democrats.That is the advantage in being self deluded!

       It would have to be razor thin to for the lawyers to muck up the works.

    “This latest lowlife sleaze comes on the heels of countless reports from around the state of various Republican dirty tricks on behalf of Walker,”

    And the best crusher Chheda could come up with was renting space on homeowners yards for signs? I can picture these effeminates swooning as they’re overcome by the vapors.

    I wonder how many minimum wage(read non living wage) people they’ll bus in to protest after Walker wins.

    All the while the Union Democrats are running buses full of homeless folks from one precinct to another all day long continuing the fine Union/Democrat tradition fo the dead rising again on election day to cast their ballots for the Marxist Democrat candidates. These voters will be rewarded with a bottle of booze, smokes & a little cash. Also I wonder how many ballot boxes full of bogus Democrats votes are being put into trunks of Democrat election officals vehicles as we speak. Also wonder if many Wisconsin counties will have more votescast  than the number of registered voters, you know like they do in Minnesota.

      Wisconsin also allows same day voter registration at the polls, just like Minnesota does.  It seems to me that the scenario you describe could be done quite easily.  Especially, if Wisconsin doesn’t require voters to present identification at the polls.

      Up until the debachle of the Al Franken election in Minnesota, the Gopher State has always had a reputation of running clean, honest, fair and square elections. That image was forever tarnished with the Franken vs. Coleman election.

        says the losing side.   What do you know Rob was right on target; “Losing elections usually cause the losing side to re-evaluate their positions. But you never have to re-evaluate if you can claim that every election loss is because of cheating.”   Just walked right into that one R.O.

    I bet the source of the calls is a butt hurt Democrat who, like everyone else, saw the writing on the wall that Walker was going to win easily and decided to foment conspiracy theories involving stolen elections and Republicans cheating. Like they did back in 2000.

    The Democrats have brought shame on Wisconsin and America

    The Democrats don’t play fair.  You can bet your Aunt Fannie they’re behind this, and of course, they’ll do everything to deflect attention away from them.

    It’s all going to be for nought.  Scott Walker will retain the governorship by a slim margin.  In the outstate areas of Wisconsin, he’s immensely popular. Walker’s Democratic opponent is the Mayor of Milwaukee, Tom Barrett.

    Barrett would have to win Milwaukee and Madison by at least 80 percent of the vote in order to counter all of the conservative votes that are going to come from the outstate areas.

    A fair reminder to our friends in Wisconsin. This ain’t Chicago, people. Wisconsin has a strong tradition of doing things fair and square.
