The facts are that some people lied to the signature gatherers and said they were not felons, but certainly not 20,000 as you claimed. The signature gatherers can't be held responsible for the lies of the petition signers. The number of times they appear on the list is more a reflection on how many convictions they've had as I've pointed out:
Your post is disingenuous. Im not arguing techinically, Im arguing in fact about exactly what is fraud. According to what Hoft reported, Im sure there are some falsified names upon that petition from ineligible voters. Which kind of highlights a problem regarding voter fraud convictions: they are notoriously hard to prove, not followed up on properly for proscecution and thus they remain rare instances when we have instances like this that hint an independent investigation by law enforcement is warranted.
Pete, it is illegal by the definition set into the statute, if a person signs a petition for recall in Wisconsin that they are ineligible for, they are committing a crime. A misdemeanor, but still a crime.
Apparently they knew more than the people who didnt catch she was a felon for the initial processing. shrugKari A Tha was listed three times, do you know why??? Because she had 3 convictions, but she only signed the petition once. Clearly those people who developed the list don't much about IT (data processing).
If you look at the following LIST, you will see that Daniel Coughlin appears on the list 10 times, but all with the same PWF Signer ID : 100011303. So, the counts will reflect 10 instead of just one. It would be interesting to know how many felons actually signed the petitions, but there in no way to know that from this vantage point.
Now, will Grim admit he is 98% wrong with this thread? Somehow I doubt it.
