    That's correct Deuce, but do you see the huge gaping hole in the ID process there? What if the registrant, who showed their ID at registration as required, dies. Takes the state a long time to notice death certs. The political parties have access to all that info. How easy is it for the dead to vote under that circumstance?

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker vastly out-raised and outspent his Democratic challenger in the state's recall election, largely on the strength of major donations from across the country.

    One reason for that was a quirk in Wisconsin law, which lets a governor in Walker's situation bypass limits on political donations.

    Wisconsin law says candidates for governor normally may not take donations of more than $10,000 each. That was the limit under which Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, the Democrat, operated in the recall election being decided Tuesday at the polls.

    But as governor, Walker had a different set of rules. A somewhat obscure state law passed in 1987 says that when a governor is facing a recall challenge, the normal donation limits are suspended for "the payment of legal fees and other expenses."

    "What doesn't qualify for 'other expenses'? Not much," says Bill Lueders, who directs the Money and Politics Project at the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.

    For months, Lueders has been combing through campaign laws, financial disclosures, expense reports and other primary documents.

    "Tom Barrett does have to abide by this $10,000 limit on individual contributions [and] he has gotten, as of today, 26 contributions of $10,000," Lueders says.

    But Walker had more than four times the number of $10,000 contributions as Barrett, he says, and because Walker didn't have to abide by that limit at all, he raised 111 contributions of more than $10,000 each — largely from outside of Wisconsin.

    "Fifty-nine percent of his overall contributions come from people in other states," Lueders says.

    Where are the political parties getting an up-to-the-day list of people who have died in between their registration and election day, and why doesn't the state have this information?

    So since both sides do it, its ok? So why did you post the story about some Republican committing voter fraud and only get angry at the Dems on the buses!

    You don't seem to have acknowledged being incorrect about Wisconsin voter registration laws.

    The state does have this info, but none I know of has a process defined for checking the death roles against the voter roles. Some, like Florida are just doing that now. The states are notorious for not noticing the deaths of their citizens. California just notified my Mother that my father is seriously in arrears on his taxes - he died six years ago. This is despite the fact she has filed both federal and state, along with all the notification to the military of his death.

    The parties have people actively working on this relationship in the figures. And, as I mentioned, the democrats have a long history of exploiting it.

    The story is what is written there. Scott lambasted Barrett in funds. Destroyed him in funding. Wasn't even close. That is the story. And you somehow are in here saying that this is a bellweather of what is going to happen nationally. You are wrong.

    He's too busy preparing his victory dance over an election where:


    Walker and Republicans outspent Barrett and Democrats $47 million to $19 million, based on the most recent tally by the government watchdog group the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign.

    ... and where Walker was never once behind in the polls... all to act like this is some kind of fortune cookie for the November elections.
