"Give me the name, Charlie"


That’s what Jim Doyle-lite, Tom Barrett said to WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes a few years ago on his program as the two discussed voter fraud, Charlie taking the position that it’s a serious problem, the mayor believing there simply isn’t any.

Governor Walker will try to stop voter fraud. Governor Barrett will try to benefit from voter fraud.

Give Tom Barrett a name?

Two More Felony Vote Fraud Convictions in Milwaukee

 

Convictions Piling up as Next Election Nears

MacIver News Service | October 5, 2010

[Milwaukee, Wisc...] Two felons in Milwaukee, who are prohibited by state law from voting, admitted that they committed election fraud in the last Presidential Election.

David Lewis and Ramon Martinez, who were charged with election fraud arising out of the November 4, 2008, Presidential Election, entered guilty pleas Tuesday wherein they admitted they voted illegally while on an active period of felony supervision. A felon on an active period of supervision for a felony offense is prohibited by state law from voting in any election.

Both Lewis and Martinez were convicted of one count of Voting by a Disqualified Person.  At the time of the election, Lewis and Martinez were both on active periods of probation for felony convictions in Milwaukee County.

Lewis was also charged with one count of Providing False Information to Election Officials; however, that count was dismissed as part of the plea agreement.

By pleading guilty, Lewis admitted that he registered to vote at the polls in November of 2008 and then cast a ballot.  Martinez admitted to also casting a ballot at the polls on November 4, 2008.

Each individual charge carries a potential penalty of imprisonment up to 3 ½ years and a $10,000 fine.  Sentencing for both is scheduled for November 9, 2010, at 1:30 p.m.

In July, Van Hollen announced the launch of a joint Elections Integrity Task Force Efforts with District Attorneys in eleven of Wisconsin’s largest counties.

That multijurisdictional action team follows the partnership in Milwaukee County, which investigated and prosecuted Miles.  According to Van Hollen, the expanded, and bipartisan, Task Force will develop and share information, resources, tactics and strategy regarding matters involving election integrity and the enforcement of Wisconsin’s elections laws. It was the Milwaukee collaboration that led to today’s conviction.

Prior to the November 2008 election, Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm announced the creation of the Election Fraud Task Force, a multi-jurisdictional action team that evaluates, investigates and prosecutes complaints of electoral fraud.  The Department of Justice and the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office work cooperatively with local law enforcement and the Milwaukee Police Department as needed when investigation is required.
