    Actually, it's Grim who is making an assertion of fact that he hasn't backed up

    He claims that Kari Tha signed a recall petition. So far, there's no evidence that this is true

    And I would think that a real lawyer would understand the difference between voting and signing a petition

    I did some checking, and according to Wisconsin law, people with felony convictions are barred from voting if incarcerated, on parole, or on probation for those crimes. So just for kicks, I looked at the list of people who committed felonies and decided to check the status of the very first person on the list, Kari A Tha, and sure enough, she is still on probation until at least mid 2013 for her 2005 felony conviction, which she served a year in prison for.

    This means she's not eligable to vote in the state of Wisconsin, and according to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, "Petition signers must reside in the district of the elected official being recalled and be eligible to vote in Wisconsin."

    Voter fraud anyone?
    Petition signing isn't voting. ANYONE can sign a petition, and if their names are vetted, then those signatures will count. The people who are going around asking for signatures aren't capable of doing on-the-spot background checks.

    This isn't voting - ergo, this isn't an example of voter fraud.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Well, if it is voter fraud, somebody is living dangerously.
    The criminal penalty for fraudulently voting when not legally qualified or for voting more than once when qualified is a fine of $300 to $500, one to two years in prison, and disenfranchisement. Anyone who votes or attempts to vote by assuming the name of another is subject to a fine of $500, one year in prison, and disenfranchisement (CGS 9-360).

    Other types of fraudulent voting violations carry stiffer penalties. Voting in violation of absentee ballot laws is punishable by a fine of up to $5,000, up to five years in prison, or both (CGS 9-359). The same penalty applies to anyone who votes or refuses to vote in consideration of anything of value (CGS 9-333x and 9-333y)). With respect to the latter offense, the commission can also (1) impose a civil penalty of $2,000 per offense or twice the amount of any improper payment or contribution, whichever is greater; (2) issue an order for the recipient to return the item of value; (3) issue an order revoking the intentional violators’ eligibility to be appointed or serve as an election, primary, or referendum official or unofficial checker or in any capacity at the polls (CGS 9-7b(2) and (3)).
    Thegatewaypundit is not really a major news source. Also, I wonder if these votes might have come from ex-felons whose voting rights have been restored. Not that the Democraps or Repugnantcans are incapable of dishonesty......

    IOW, this is just another BS accusation from the rightwing based on nothing more than their ignorance of the law

    So somebody who signed the recall petition commited voter fraud?

    When did they vote exactly, and how does signing a petition constitute voter fraud. Would it not be petition fraud

    Signing a petition is voting? Since when?
