FRAUD or Conspiracy

Only the names have been changed to protect the King county liberals.

They probably think this story is about them.

82 felons voted in Nov. 2 election
Public records law hinders analysis; more illegal ballots likely cast in presidential race

At least 82 felons voted illegally in the presidential election Nov. 2 in Milwaukee, though the total is likely far higher, a new computer analysis by the Journal Sentinel has found.

Indeed, there are more than 600 potential matches between felons on probation and parole and names and middle initials of people who voted in the city. But a full analysis could not be completed by the newspaper because of a 2003 state law that bars access to birth dates of voters.

The newspaper, though, was able to do a partial analysis by combining several computer databases to capture birth dates for about 39% of those who voted in the November election.

That showed at least 82 votes by felons, who are not allowed to vote until their probation or parole has been completed.

Illegal votes by felons are part of an investigation into possible voter fraud in the city.

U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic and Milwaukee County District Attorney E. Michael McCann launched the investigation after the Journal Sentinel revealed major problems. Those included 1,200 votes from invalid addresses; 7,000 more ballots cast than people later recorded as voting by the city; and 1,300 same-day registration cards that could not be processed because of missing information.
